March Madness 2010 Number 2 Seed Update

We currently have Purdue as a number 2 seed for our March Madness bracket and that is where they will stay as they got a big road win at Indiana 78-75. Some of you may wonder if this shows weakness in Purdue as many of you probably saw the game on ESPN or the highlights showing Indiana with a legitimate chance to tie the game up on their last possession, however we actually were considering if we would be moving Purdue to a 1 seed after the game.  Bloomington Indiana is a tough place to play no matter how good of season Indiana is having, in fact Purdue despite their solid play in the Big Ten over the last few years hadn't won in Bloomington in 8 straight trips. Purdue really showed some mettle in that game overcoming a strong Indiana run and a boisterous crowd. In the game they were led by their meal tickets JaJuan Johnson and Robbie Hummel who each had 21 points in the game, E'Twaun Moore contributed 14 as well.  We really like how solid Purdue's starting 5 is, as all of them are strong contributers.The one thing we worry about in the tournament is that they don't have an elite guard, but they are very solid.

The Boilermakers have now 5 conference games in a row and are tied for second place in the Big Ten with Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Illinois. Purdue has a huge matchup in their next game at conference leading Michigan State and also has tough contests left on the schedule at Ohio State and Minnesota and a home game against Michigan State. If Purdue can loose only one of these games they could definetly move up to a number 1 seed for the March Madness 2010 brackets. As a side note watch out for the Wisconsin Badgers rising up the bracket as they game with in a possession of knocking of Purdue on the road and have already defeated 3 top five teams this season, they are also done playing the premier teams in the conference and have a chance at running the table from here on out.
