A home game against NIT champion Texas and a matchup with Butler at the Crossroads Classic in Indianapolis highlight Purdue’s non-conference men’s basketball schedule, which was released Wednesday.

The memories remain fresh for Purdue fans. The clutch shots steps behind the 3-point line. The free throws made to force overtime in an eventual Sweet 16 win over Tennessee.

Indiana was unable to solve lefty pitcher Danielle Williams and the rest of the Northwestern Wildcats in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Softball Tournament on Friday night.

The week started with nine of the 14 Big Ten football teams coming out of spring practices planning to continue quarterback auditions in August. The number was down to seven by Friday.

The season did not end as Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett intended. The fabulous freshmen came to Duke to win a national championship and their bid came up short with a loss to Michigan State in the Elite Eight.

Former Indiana star Calbert Cheaney, former Purdue star Terry Dischinger and former Valparaiso coach Homer Drew are part of the 2019 class selected Tuesday for the College Basketball Hall of Fame.

From embarrassment to exhilaration. From early exit to regional champ. From bracket busters to net cutters.

Michigan State guard Cassius Winston and Purdue coach Matt Painter on Monday won the Big Ten’s top men’s basketball awards. Winston swept Player of the Year and Painter swept Coach of the Year in separate voting done by league coaches and media.

Amir Coffey matched his career with 32 points, making two free throws with 2.5 seconds left Tuesday night to seal Minnesota's 73-69 victory over No. 11 Purdue to give the Gophers a big boost for an NCAA Tournament berth and spoil the Boilermakers' bid for an outright Big Ten title.

The Big Ten men’s basketball title is within reach for No. 11-ranked Purdue heading into the final week of games.

Halfway there in its bid for a ninth straight victory, No. 12 Purdue suddenly became incapable of making a layup, popping a short jumper or sinking a shot from beyond the arc.

Matt Painter was surprised to see his best player getting open shots early. He wasn't surprised when Carsen Edwards made one after the other, and then drained the well-defended ones later.

Purdue's Carsen Edwards was pouring in points with shot after shot. Somebody had to match him if Texas was going to find a way to end a frustrating early-season losing streak.

Known for his catchphrases, Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck had one for his defense that he repeated often in the week after firing defensive coordinator Robb Smith: sound, simple fast.

Former Eastern Illinois football coach Bob Spoo, whose players included future NFL quarterbacks Tony Romo and Jimmy Garoppolo, has died at age 80.

WEST LAFAYETTE - Purdue picked up a pair of intriguing prospects Monday night that should help both sides of the ball.

When history remembers 2017 Purdue football season, one of its defining moments will be tight end Cole Herdman diving across the goal line to celebrate the Boilers’ double reverse, pitch back flea-flicker against Ohio.
