Purdue may have arguably the best defense in the country but head coach Matt Painter ain't happy. Last week, the Boilermakers ran out to a 37-20 halftime lead against Iowa but proceeded to allowed 50 in the second half. It resulted in a 70-63 home loss. Painter said that it wasn't so much poor defense as it was
that played a role in the meltdown. Purdue plays host to Michigan tonight.
"Our offense has been poor," Painter said. "We haven't taken care of the basketball and our shot selection hasn’t been great. Any time you're in transition more and you can’t set your defense, you're not going to be be as efficient."
"We had guys that didn’t play with poise; didn’t show their experience," Painter said. "Nothing that happened in the second half didn’t happen in the first half. When there's something that needs to be adjusted, you make that adjustment at halftime. When you've held somebody to 20 points and only four turnovers at halftime, there's not an adjustment to be made."
