Today, the Purdue Boilermakers will take on the Michigan State Spartans in quarterfinal action of the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis.

Expect the atmosphere to be great, as well as a terrific performance on the court by these great student athletes.

The Boilermakers swept the season series winning at both venues, so expect the Spartans to be charged up in this one.

Purdue is coming off a loss to Iowa and is hungry for a win—this should be a great Big Ten battle.
