Well Day 2 of March Madness was not as exciting as Day 1 with all the upsets and buzzer-beaters. Chalk it up to better seeding or the favorites taking care of business it doesn’t matter. One such team is Purdue — seeded 4th but picked by everyone to lose. Even the president picked Purdue to be upset by 13th seeded Siena.
JaJuan Johnson was the key in Purdue’s win over Siena — with 23 points, 15 rebounds, and 2 assists he filled the void that star forward Robbie Himmel left to a season-ending knee injury on Feb. 24. Johnson knocked down an amazing 8 of 16 from the field and 7 of 11 from the free throw line. He now has 83 points from the last four games.
Purdue faces 5th seeded Texas A&M Sunday — tip-off at 4 p.m. central.
