The Purdue Boilermakers, the Big Ten's last best hope in the NCAA Tournament are out, as they lost to Oklahoma in the elite 8 last night. Final score was 74-68. The Boilermakers had a 5 point halftime lead but couldn't handle the Sooner attack down the stretch. Wisdom-Hylton lead Purdue with 20 points and 13 rebounds.

This doesn't help the Big Ten in its attempt to gain more attention as a top conference. With three teams (Purdue, Ohio State, and Michigan State) all making good runs it would have been nice to see one of those teams get to the final four. I guess we'll have to wait until next year.
