Last night the Purdue Boilermakers demolished the Florida State Seminoles 93-65 in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Four of the Boilermakers five starters were in double figures with Caleb Furst coming one point short of making it all five starters.
Hamilton has been around college basketball since 1966 when he started his collegiate career as a player, started coaching in 1971, and has been at Florida State since 2002. ESPN College Basketball Analyst Seth Greenberg made his weekly stop on the Dan Dakich Show and echoed what Hamilton said about the Boilers.
“Goodness gracious. They are so good. The ball never gets stuck. It NEVER gets stuck. You’ve got five guys on the floor at all times that can pass it and will pass it. You have five guys on the court that will make a play for each other.” Greenberg stated.
Dan opened Wednesday’s show by even stating that they are the most complete team in the country. Purdue is averaging 92.4 points per game (2nd in NCAA), 19.7 assists per game (6th), and shoot 54.6% from the floor (2nd). Not to mention they have four players that are averaging 12+ points per game. They have already defeated North Carolina and Villanova. Next up for the Boilers are the Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday from Mackey Arena at 9:00pm EST.
