The Randy Drury
Purdue used many gutty performances, like this one from Austin Parkinson, to overcome a slew of "no-calls" and "incidental contact" on their way to a 69-47 drubbing of Randy Drury and Indiana University. Purdue also got good minutes from Melvin Buckley, who was eleven years old the last time Purdue beat Drury.
Drury and crew had a tough game plan -- evidenced here by tricks of missing the shove to the lower body of the shooter because they were too focused on ignoring the slap on the arm.
Purdue was, nevertheless, victorious as shown here in this photo from purduesports.com. Speculation runs rampant over the meaning of Keady's gesture here, however. Was it
in eight tries against Randy!", or
"Here's how many real refs
we had today!", or
"There's the exits, Randy ... use 'em."
or something else entirely? The world may never know.
