B1G Basketball Diaries: The Night Purdue God Murdered

Holy crap, Indiana. What did Purdue ever do to you?

Indiana 97 Purdue 60

Honestly, what do I really need to say here? Look at that score. Then remind yourself this game took place in West Lafayette. Now look at that score again. Right?

It's the biggest home loss in Purdue history -- the previous mark was a 21-point loss to Illinois in 2001 -- and it was just mean. Every single Indiana starter finished in double digits, with Cody Zeller scoring 19 and grabbing 11 rebounds. What makes this game even more amazing is the fact that Purdue's A.J. Hammons had 30 points himself. Half of Purdue's total.

Michigan 68 Northwestern 46

Honestly, if there was going to be a game in which somebody lost by 37 on Wednesday night, I'd have assumed it was Northwestern in Ann Arbor. In the end Michigan could only muster a 22-point win and the outcome was never in doubt. The Wolverines jumped out to a 23-11 lead halfway through the first half and it was over from there.

I don't know if Michigan will win the conference, but we might as well give Trey Burke the B1G Player of the Year award right now. Burke finished with 18 points and 8 assists as Michigan yet again finished a game shooting better than 50% from the floor.
