11 Days to B1G Basketball: We've Got Purdue Exhibition Highlights

Today we continue our daily countdown towards the tipoff of the Big Ten basketball season.

We're in full season preview mode so this countdown update is going to be light, but boy is it good. I know the competition is suspect, at best, and it's only an exhibition game...but talk about beast mode from A.J. Hammons:

Oh and like I mentioned on the podcast, Hammons can actually hit from outside...not that he'll shoot much from out there in the season. While it'd be nice to see a little JJ from the big man, I've came to terms that it's not going to happen.

And here's a few more highlights from Basil Smotherman and Isaac Haas.

There was one thing that caught my eye that is potentially alarming for Purdue fans, though...and it was another tepid performance from the charity stripe (14 of 26). I know Purdue was better here during the scrimmages, but why does it seem like come game time no one can successfully convert from the free throw line in West Lafayette?
