PURDUE: Last season: 27-8; lost to Kansas in NCAA Tournament regional semifinals
Who's gone: F Caleb Swanigan, F Basil Smotherman, G Spike Albrecht.
Who's back: F Vincent Edwards. The senior preseason all-conference selection might be the Boilermakers' best overall player. He can shoot (48.6 percent), score (12.6), rebound (4.9) and defend. G Carsen Edwards. As a freshman, the other Edwards ' no relation to Vincent ' led Purdue in assists (133) and was tied for the team-high in steals (36). This year, he'll be asked to increase his scoring average from 10.6 points. C Isaac Haas. The 7-foot-2 senior averaged 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds in just 19.5 minutes last season. With Swanigan off to the NBA, Haas is likely to log more minutes if he stays out of foul trouble.
Who's new: F Matt Haarms. The redshirt freshman used last season to try and add strength. Now the 7-foot-3 Dutch native could fill the role Haas had over the last couple of seasons off the bench. If the Boilermakers play Haas and Haarms together, they could have the biggest front line in the nation.
The Skinny: Yes, the defending Big Ten champs lost the conference player of the year (Swanigan). But they are hardly bereft of talent. Painter has four starters and six of his top seven scorers back. With size, versatility, tournament experience and a team that knows how to defend, look for the four seniors to keep the Boilermakers at or near the top of the conference standings.
No. 18 Purdue looks to regroup vs. Western Kentucky

This was not the Battle 4 Atlantis matchup on Thanksgiving Day that No. 18 Purdue anticipated.

The Boilermakers (4-1) will face Western Kentucky (2-2) at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday night after each lost on Wednesday afternoon.

Tennessee (3-0) upset Purdue 78-75 in overtime, and No. 5 Villanova beat Western Kentucky 66-58.

Purdue, which entered averaging 102 points and shooting 56.8 percent from the field, shot only 36.3 percent against the Volunteers. Tennessee had 20 offensive rebounds among its 50-41 advantage on the glass.

The Vols also recorded 21 second-chance points, 20 points off 18 Purdue turnovers and 38 points in the paint. The Boilermakers' lofty shooting stats fell to 53.2 percent overall and 46.2 percent from 3-point range.

It marked Purdue's first regular-season tournament loss -- it had won 11 consecutive times -- since falling to Kansas State in the opening round of the 2014 Maui Invitational.

While 6-foot-7 Grant Williams led Tennessee with 22 points -- all after halftime -- 6-8 Vince Edwards led Purdue with 11 points, 13 rebounds and five assists. Sophomore guard Carsen Edwards actually was the Boilermakers' leading scorer with 21. He missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer at the regulation buzzer.

When Western Kentucky plays Purdue on Thursday night, it will be the Hilltoppers' first back-to-back games against Top 25 opponents since the 1993 NCAA tournament.

Purdue coach Matt Painter was bitterly disappointed by Wednesday's loss to Tennessee in the Bahamas.

"Tennessee embraced the physicality of the game much better than we did," Painter said.

"We have to be able to do that. That's not just our big guys, that is everybody. I thought they earned what they got. We have a skilled team, but we've got to win the possession wars. We've got to outrebound our opponent. We have to have fewer turnovers. When you do that, now that skill is really going to help you.

"I thought we gave Tennessee a lot of help. We've got to do a better job decision-making. We're a good offensive team, but we've got to allow ourselves to be a good offensive team. When we go too quick or force things and we turn it over, now we're not rewarding ourselves."

Senior guard P.J. Thompson, who scored 11, was hoping to play No. 5 Villanova in Thursday's semifinals and No. 2 Arizona in Friday's title game. Now, it will be Western Kentucky and still maybe Arizona in the fifth-place game. The Wildcats were upset by North Carolina State on Wednesday.

"It's very disappointing," Thompson said. "We weren't worried about the other teams. We focused on Tennessee. Credit to them. They came out and had great intensity."

Vince Edwards said Purdue lacked what carried the team to an impressive 4-0 start.

"We've got to continue to do what got us here," Edwards said. "We had some plays where we took some quick shots. We should have moved the ball. Credit them. They pressured us, they were physical with us."

Western Kentucky got 16 points from Darius Thompson and shot 44 percent in its solid eight-point loss to the nation's fifth-ranked team.

"I'm really proud of our team's effort," Hilltoppers coach Rick Stansbury said. "But I think it's the way we kind of let the game get away from us in the second half that I'm most disappointed with."
