Boilermakers Poised to Make Some Noise in NCAA Tourney

daniel somervilleContributor IMarch 19, 2008

Call them young, call them overachievers, call them Baby Boilers or call em anything you like, but Matt Painter's 2008 Purdue team has got the shooting and the defensive intensity to make a very strong run in the NCAA tournament.

Fearless and yet humble - this team is led by underclassmen who listen to their coach, play with intensity, and are oh so hungry for success.

Who stands in their path to the Elite 8 you might ask?  How about three teams that Purdue matches up very well with: Baylor, Xavier, and Duke.

Go Boilermakers!
