Mackey Arena is often in the conversation as one of the loudest, most energetic environments in college basketball and is considered one of the best venues in the B1G. “The Paint Crew” earning best student section only reaffirms that.
On their home floor, Purdue has defeated the likes of Maryland, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan State, all of which were ranked at the time of play. The Boilermakers will be back in front of the best student section on Saturday night, when they host Nebraska.
