WBB: The Boilermaker Boss

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Just 90 minutes prior to the tip-off the Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament opener between Indiana and Purdue, the Boilermakers held a Pep Rally at their "home away from home," Scotty's Brewhouse.

Purdue athletic director Morgan Burke addressed Boiler Nation in attendance and spoke candidly about the team's up-and-down season this year. 

He touched on the fight of Drey Mingo, who has become nearly deaf in her left ear after a recent battle with bacterial meningitis.  He applauded the efforts of the team going 15-7 down the stretch and winning its last two road contests.

And once Purdue Pete stepped up and stood beside the Boilermaker boss, Burke informed the crowd that Pete is getting a makeover after nearly 30 years.

With the lunch-hour noise in the background, BigTen.org could not hear what Pete had to say, but he clapped in approval and had a smile on his face, so we think he's happy about the new gear coming his way.
