March Madness 2010:4 Purdue - 13 Siena Upset Update

March Madness 2010 Upset Update
4 Purdue vs 13 Siena
South Regional
Final Score 72 Purdue 64 Siena
(latest update always at the bottom of the article.)
Siena has taken the lead at 18 to 15 as the game is now being played at a faster pace that they prefer, they are on an 8 to 0 run. Kramer is getting beat due to his lack of height on the defensive end. Alex Franklin is off to a great start with 10 points on 4 of 7 shooting for Siena. Johnson is leading the way for Purdue with 9 points. What is really hurting Purdue right now besides the quicker pace is they are 0 for 6 from three point range. A lot of people picked this Siena upset with Hummel being injured, we didn't as we thought Johnson would be enough to get a victory but the matchup problem Kramer is having on defense needs to get corrected.
It is now 20 to 19 Siena with 7:35 to go in the half.
Purdue has asserted themselves in the second half and are now up 56 to 43 halfway through the second.
JaJuan Johnson has been a beast for Purdue with 20 so far, Grant has added 11 and Moore 10.
Purdue got the win like we thought they would, you had to think Purdue would be playing with authority in this game, Johnson finished with 23. Purdue still has a lot of talent and while we thought they would play Utah State in the second round and win we will still take them over Texas A&M who advances to face them in the second round.
