Purdue fans have experienced their fair share of March Madness heartbreak in recent history. That fact alone has to have Boilermaker fans on edge everywhere with the current scene from Friday night’s first half of action.

Facing the No. 16 seed Fairleigh Dickinson in the East Region, the Boilermakers came out of the gate a bit sluggish. While Matt Painter’s squad did wake up after falling behind by 6 points, FDU carried a 32-31 lead into the half.

The Knights have employed a balanced attack against Purdue with 6 FDU players scoring 4 or more points in the first half. They also limited turnovers with 5 in the first 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, 3-point shooting was problematic for Purdue with the Boilermakers shooting 2-for-11 from deep. Zach Edey was phenomenal with a game-high 12 points to go with 6 rebounds, but Purdue had 7 turnovers in the first half with 5 coming from Braden Smith.

If Purdue doesn’t clean things up in the second half, it could result in a catastrophic and historic upset. Here’s how fans on social media reacted to the first half of action:
