Bulls Beat Pacers, 3-0 lead in Playoffs

Despite Indiana’s defense shut down on Derek Rose, the Bulls overcame the hurdle to beat them out for a 3-0 lead in the playoff tournament. Rose’s only field goal in the second half was the clincher with 17.8 seconds left. On April 21st the Pacers will be on their home turf in Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, so hopefully the Bulls can keep their streak alive! 

Purdue Final Home Meet of Season

The Boilermakers Track and Field team had their final outdoor meet of the season on Saturday. The seniors said farewell to their Alma Mater in their last home competition. Victories by seniors Emily Breslin (high jump) and Stacy Wannamacher (discus) and Jake Palmer (800m) and Chris Kirtz (high jump) on the men’s side was a great end on their home track.
