Purdue Boilermakers 2017-18 Basketball Team Preview and Prediction

They also continued their consecutive games of not giving up more than 70 points in a game. DraftExpress had him at 16 in his latest mock draft. Who, if anyone, do you think are Illinois best players over 6'6" I can't think of even one that is anything less than a pipe dream to be effective Who, if anyone, do you think are Penn State's best players under 6'5"?

I'm also expecting we'll pull off a couple of upset wins. Feb 3, Messages: Aug 29, Messages: Nov 12, Messages: Carsen is the best player in the country. Fansince72 and Bethboilerfan like this.

I don't see anyone potentially serviceable as a big at Illinois or as a ball handler at Penn State. Seems to me that both of those teams and their coaches are gonna have a sad situation. Sep 17, Messages: So I've been watching this replay of MSU vs Duke last season and I am just as confident about MSU not being a top 4 team as I am about any other prediction about any other team in the conference.

They're obviously drawing stone cold dead to win the conference. Grayson Allen has abused whoever has taken their turn guarding him between McQuaid and Josh Lanhford. G Carsen Edwards So. SG Dakota Mathias Sr. SG Ryan Cline Jr. F Aaron Wheeler Fr. F Eden Ewing Jr. SG Sasha Stefanovic Fr. Mar 11, Messages: Jun 19, Messages: I could see us leading the big ten in scoring and averaging 80 to 83 a game.

Don't really see any big jumps as far as increases in scoring go but I also don't think we see a drop off from anybody. Haas goes up a point or 2, same for CE. Mathias, Cline and Vince hold steady and the 5 or 6 newcomers are able to average a combined what Biggie and Spike did at the very least. Feb 11, Messages: Haarms will be more productive that that. Eastern will eventually start if he's consistent. At this point, I think Painter still doesn't have an idea what Biggie is thinking since he guards himself so well from everything.

Ad HC Painter has to make sub choices by pursuing bigs. Painter is not confident with Biggie leaving or not at all. I want Biggie to be more clear with his choice so that Painter can target someone he likes harder instead of hunting bigs at this time of the year makes everything so not sure. The worst case scenario, we won't get anyone later on, Biggie stays in draft, Taylor not healthy next season.

I think the OP is pretty close, with one exception, I expect Eastern to be averaging in double figures and really contributing right out of the gate!

Oct 5, Messages: Last year we average I hope our newcomers do better, but this would put us 12th out of 14th B1G teams This would worried me the MOST.

Stefanovic is the only newcomer I can imagine redshirting.

May 23, Messages: Wheeler redshirting is pure speculation by this board's posters it would be a total waste. I don't care if Brian Cardinal redshirted. We need Wheeler to play. Why would he need to redshirt at Purdue? Definitely pure speculation by some posters on this board.
