Today is the day. 5th place in the B1G is on the line tonight in Bloomington. IU fans say they are back, and after Purdue wins tonight, they will be back…back below Purdue in the standings.
and just because I can…
Terrible news out of West Lafayette this morning. DJ Byrd has been suspended for Sunday’s game against Michigan State and Kelsey Barlow has been dismissed from the team.
Members of the team, including Robbie Hummel and Lewis Jackson, were out celebrating Barlow’s 21st birthday. What really happened is pure speculation at this point, but we do know DJ was arrested for Public Intoxication.
This is the third straight season for Purdue where some unforeseen misfortune strikes the team late in the season. In 09-10, Robbie went down with his ACL injury when Purdue was playing better than any team in the country. In 10-11 Barlow was suspended for the NCAA Tournament. And now this.
We here at Boilermakers always loved Barlow on the court. He was clearly the most athletic player and had the best pro potential of any player on the team, but he just never seemed to really put it all together. His issues off the court though were frustrating, and ultimately Painter had to dismiss him, as this was Barlow’s third strike.
Here are some of the best moments, in picture, of Barlow’s career as a Boilermaker.
