Team preview: Purdue
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Last year, the Purdue Boilermakers showed tremendous skill at rebounding. No, they weren't that great under the glass-they finished in the middle of the pack in that category.
Instead, they rebounded from a two-year NCAA Tournament drought to post a third-place finish in the Big Ten and reach the second round of the big tournament, where they gave No. 1 seed Texas all it wanted in an eventual 10-point loss.
