Purdue Basketball: What the Boilermakers Learned Against the Iowa Hawkeyes

The Purdue Boilermakers went into Iowa City expecting a victory and a possible shot of a one seed, along with a share of the Big Ten title.

The opponent was weaker, but the Boilermakers came out on the losing end on Saturday, with a final score of 67-65.

The Boilermakers had chances at the end of the game to take the lead, but just couldn't make the shots to keep it.

During their pre-game routine, the Boilermakers seemed uncharacteristically unfocused.

JaJuan Johnson scored 22 points, but was only 9-23 from the field.

The Boilermakers just were not on their game against the Hawkeyes. They were throwing up ill advised threes and just settling with long jumpers instead of running their offense against the Hawkeyes' zone.

Purdue took 25 jump shots and only hit a mere five of them.

As a team, the Boilermakers shot just 36.2 percent from the field and were out-rebounded 47-32. 

Here are a few things to take from this game.
