Siena and Purdue are not playing well, both shooting under 40 percent from the field, and the difference in the game is one more 3-pointer by Siena.
Siena is right where they want to be as the lower seed, but they will have to shoot it better. They don’t want to be in a close game with a Big Ten defense.
Purdue is in trouble. They are one of nine from the 3-point line, and they haven’t played well since Robbie Hummel went down. The Boilermakers were a team with potential, maybe a No. 1 seed with Hummel, and now it looks as though they will make an early exit. Siena 32, Purdue 29.
