The Big Ten Tournament is down to its top eight teams, all of which are in action Friday.
If the first 20 minutes of Michigan’s game against top-seeded Purdue is any question, it’s going to be a great day of basketball in Washington D.C.
A back-and-forth first half ended with a bang as Purdue’s P.J. Thompson nailed a shot from just beyond half court before the first-half buzzer.

PJ made the same damn shot vs Nova to end the 1H then, too. pic.twitter.com/fN8X4eeBP8

As noted, Thompson has some half-court shot experience. He hit a very similar shot against Villanova back on Nov. 14 when the Boilermakers hosted the defending national champs.
Thompson’s shot against Michigan narrowed the Wolverines’ lead to 38-37 at the break.
Thompson had 6 points at halftime, both on 3-pointers — though the first one was from a bit closer to the basket.
