After getting knocked out of the 2021 NCAA Tournament by North Texas, but returning basically every key contributor from that team, expectations were sky high for Purdue this year.
Heading into this year’s Big Dance, it’s hard not to argue the Boilermakers are well behind on those expectations.
Thankfully, when March Madness begins the season resets and gives everybody opportunity to leave a lasting legacy.
For the Purdue Boilermakers that reset means the hopes of winning a National Title begin anew, starting with a Round of 64 date with the Yale Bulldogs.
