Though the rosters are the same no matter where they play, when the Purdue men's basketball team takes their home court in Mackey Arena, they have been a much different team.

They’ve scored more at all levels, defended better, rebounded with more tenacity and played with more energy.

Sunday’s game was played in Champaign, Illinois.

The 63-37 defeat represented Purdue's lowest point total of the season so far.

It started from the opening tip, as Purdue missed its first ten shots from the field, falling to an 11-0 deficit they were never able to overcome.

When it rains, it pours. It rained from start to finish on the Boilermaker football team Saturday, and it was the Illinois Fighting Illini that poured it on from beginning to end.

With the storm grounding the Boilermaker offense and the defense ill-equipped to stop an Illinois team picking up momentum, Purdue fell to Illinois for the first time in three tries, 24-6 -- even though the Illini gained just 26 yards through the air.

Six Indiana organizations have pitched in to buy a new high-tech microscope. The nearly $9 million machine is a cryo-electron microscope that allows scientists to examine molecules at the atomic level.

Purdue University Professor of Biological Sciences Richard Kuhn says a sample is taken and immersed in liquid nitrogen.
