It’s been another great season of Boilermaker Basketball – here are my favorite photos from this season!

Usually I’ll do 5 or 10 of my favorite photos in a post but this season was incredible and was hard to limit it. Smaller than a regular game gallery, here’s 87 of my favorites.

Preseason against Southern Indiana kicked it off:

The Villanova game was nothing short of epic.

One of the shots I had been after for the past two years covering Purdue in Mackey:

Pat O’Donnell III after the win:

Ryan Cline wiping off his shoes after coming into the game. With the camera on the ground, he looks incredibly tall.

During halftime, they welcomed our new Football Head Coach, Jeff Brohm for a quick word.

He was greeted with quite the applause. Looking forward to what is in store this year for Purdue Football

Top Gun night was another really fun night in Mackey:

Then came Indiana:

with a campout:

and with the addition this season of BoilerBall Lights, the Paint Crew getting out their flag at the final game of the year looked so much cooler.

No it aint.

Dave Wegiel Jr firing off a few frames during the Hail Fire chant.

Vincent hugs PJ during the final seconds of the IU game:

Dave came over and told me the trophy was lonely. Thanks to him, I got a few photos of it all by itself.

B1G Champs:

Caleb Swanigan and Vincent Edwards recognized for their record breaking seasons:

Vincent – 1000 career points

Biggie – 353 Rebounds

Spike Albrecht…

and Jon McKeeman being recognized during the Senior Night festivities:

Then, the nets were to be cut.

After the B1G Championship win, it was time for the NCAA Tournament.

Jacquil Taylor, one of the quietest players physically was one of the loudest cheering the Boilermakers on this year.

 

Then, it was on to Kansas City where Purdue would face #1 Kansas.

PJ smiling during open practice the afternoon before gameday.

Cool to see former head coach Gene Keady follow the Boilermakers post-season.

A few candid moments during practice:

Biggie putting in work at the post during practice.

Isaac Haas is one big dude. His leg is almost as tall as Purdue Sports’ athletic trainer, Chad Young.

Isaac making the rim look a few feet lower than normal.

The Sprint Center.

Time to go.

Purdue got off to a great start.

Leading by as many as 8 in the first half:

But it was just not enough. Kansas got into their rhythm a bit in the first half.

But really started heating up in the second half.

The Boilermakers could not contain Kansas’ hot hands.

Though, they tried and the players seemed to keep their heads up for most of the 2nd half.

But in the end, Kansas moved on to the Elite Eight.

Nothing that a nice 8″ personal pizza can’t heal.

This season, the photo galleries, this photo story might not have ended how the Boilermakers hoped it would, but can’t forget all the great things Purdue did this season and everything there is to look forward to next season.

It’s been incredibly fun following this team, and I can’t wait to do it all again next year.
