Green Bay vs Purdue Basketball Preview
Purdue came close so close last year, going on a strong NCAA Tournament run before falling to eventual champion Virginia in overtime of Elite Eight game despite 42 points from Carsen Edwards.
Edwards is gone, now with the Boston Celtics, but the team returns two starters in Matt Haarms and Nojel Eastern from last year’s team that posted a 26-10 record.
“I think trying not to be like that (2018-19) team is going to be really important,” Purdue head coach Matt Painter said. “No one is going to take over Carsen Edwards’ role for us. We didn’t have a Carsen Edwards before, and let’s not have one afterwards.
“And I think that’s important in basketball, because I think in recruiting, a lot of times people say you’re going to come in and you’re going to play the same role as this guy, when in reality you’re just going to be the best version of yourself.”
Painter is entering his 15th season with the team and it doesn’t sound like he’s going anywhere soon.
“There are people who like their job, but they don’t like it well enough to stay. And then there are people who love their job and they want to stay. That’s all I want,” Painter said. “I just want to keep the job I have. I don’t worry about what’s next. I learned that from Coach Keady. I’ve had opportunities to leave, but I didn’t. The focus should be on your team, and that’s what I do.”
The key for the Boilermakers will be its four sophomores progresses to keep them competitive as they seek a third Big 10 title in four years.
“Everybody wants to talk about the freshmen because they haven’t seen them,” Painter said. “Well, it’s just a curiosity question. That’s all it is because they haven’t seen them like they’ve seen everybody else. Those guys that were freshmen and now sophomores, those are the guys that have to make the jump.”
Green Bay went 21-17 last year and finished fourth in the Horizon League. The Phoenix have a tough non-conference slate, which includes Purdue, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Xavier, UCF and Northern Illinois.
Players to watch for Green Bay will be JayQuan McCloud, ShanQuan Hemphill, and Kameron Hankerson, who were the top scorers for the program last year.
Purdue is a massive 23-point favorite for the game, with the total set at 151. Green Bay is 0-10 in their last 10 games against an opponent in the Big Ten conference.
