Robbie Hummel explains what it means to be inducted into Purdue Athletics Hall of Fame
Robbie Hummel’s immortality as a Purdue basketball legend grew a little bit over the weekend. The former Boilermaker was inducted into the Purdue Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday for his successes on the court.
Hummel, who played under Matt Painter at Purdue from 2007-2012, was a member of some of the great Boilermaker teams that included future NBA players JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore. He played in 127 career games while in West Lafayette, averaging 14 points per game for his career.
During his career, Hummel also averaged 6.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.9 blocks per contest.
On Saturday, Hummel was honored at Purdue’s basketball game, as the Boilers hosted Michigan. He spoke with Big Ten Network’s Michelle McMahon about the honor:
