(Boston, MA) — Two-seeded Purdue clashes with number-three Texas Tech tonight in Sweet 16 action from Boston. The Boilermakers own wins over Cal-State Fullerton and Butler so far in the “Big Dance”. Big man Isaac Haas will be available off the bench but is unlikely to play due to a fractured elbow. Tip-off is at 9:57 p.m. from T.D. Garden.
