The Purdue Boilermakers will tip off their 2011 NCAA tournament playing against Saint Peter's. This is going to be the most mismatched game of the first round, and the Boilermakers will win this game by at least 20.
In the next game Purdue will most likely have to play against Georgetown, which has been slumping as of lately. Once again, Purdue will prevail.
Unless if there is a huge upset, the Boilermakers will face off against Notre Dame in the Sweet 16. Notre Dame is a very good team, and the Boilermakers will have a lot of trouble with them.
However, Purdue is known for its defense, and if it can stop Ben Hansbrough, it will be able to win this game. Also, there is no one on the Fighting Irish that will be able to stop JaJuan Johnson.
This will put the Boilermakers in the Elite Eight, where they will most likely play Kansas. Although this is a very winnable game, it will be their toughest test of the tournament.
If they can win this game, they will find themselves in the Final Four for the first time since 1980.
