Day of hoops

College Gameday....what more is there to say?  A chance for the Boilers to knock off Sparty and get back on track.  Keys for the game in my opinion each way.

For Michigan State:
1. Equalize JaJuan Johnson
2. Rebounding
3. Find an X-factor

For Purdue:
1. Rebounding
2. Transition D
3. Bench play

From experience if you can win the rebound battle and keep State out of transition you are going to give yourself a great chance to win.  They run so many sets Purdue's D should be able to take things away or at least push State's offense out on the court.

The atmosphere is going to be unbelievable!  I wish I was able to be in attendance and watch the Boilers protect their home court.  If we get 70+ points we are a tough team to beat.  Look for Smooge and JaJuan to keep playing like senior All Big Ten performers and look for J. Hart, R. Smith, or L. Jackson to step up as well.
