The Purdue Boilermakers basketball team is a college basketball program that competes in NCAA Division I and is a member of the Big Ten Conference. Purdue basketball holds the record for most Big Ten Championships with 22.1 The Boilermakers have reached two NCAA Tournament Final Fours and won a non-NCAA recognized National Championship for the 1932 season, awarded several years later by the Helms Athletic Foundation. It has sent more than 30 players to the NBA including two overall No. 1 picks in the NBA draft. Purdue shares a traditional rivalry with in-state foe Indiana University, and holds a dominant 113-88 all time series lead.

History

1896–1932

The history of Purdue basketball dates back to 1896 with their first game against the Lafayette YMCA.1 In the 1902–03 season, head coach C.I. Freeman, in his only season, led them to an undefeated 8–0 record. Upon conclusion of the season, the university recognized the popularity of the sport and made it part of the Purdue University Athletic Association. The Boilermakers began play in the Big Ten Conference three years later, with its first championship coming in 1911 under the direction of Ralph Jones. In 1917, Ward "Piggy" Lambert, a former basketball player at Wabash College, was named head coach of the Boilermakers. What followed was one of the most dominant eras of Purdue Basketball on the conference and national level. Under Lambert, Purdue became a front-runner in the development of the fast-paced game as it is today. In 28 seasons, Lambert mentored 16 All-Americans and 31 First Team All-Big Ten selections, which included the 1932 National Player of the Year John Wooden, the first college player to be named a Consensus All-American three times. Lambert compiled a career record of 371–152, a .709 winning percentage. His 228 wins in Big Ten play have been bested by only Indiana's Bob Knight and former Purdue head coach Gene Keady.1 Lambert won an unprecedented 11 Big Ten Championships, which Bobby Knight later tied for most in conference history. Purdue was officially named the 1932 National Champions by the Helms Athletic Foundation, seven years before the establishment of the NCAA Tournament. The Helms National Championship was retroactively awarded to Purdue's 1932 squad in 1936.

1932–1965

Ward Lambert announced his resignation on January 23, 1946. That same year and the year following under new head coach Mel Taube, Purdue would win both meetings against coach John Wooden's Indiana State team. On February 24, 1947, tragedy struck as two students were killed and 166 people were taken to hospitals after the 3,400 student section of the Purdue Fieldhouse collapsed during a game against Wisconsin. Center Paul Hoffman became the only Boiler to be named a First Team-All Big Ten selection four times in 1947. With third overall picked teammate Ed "Bulbs" Ehlers (who played for John Wooden at South Bend Central High School), the two were the first players in the program's history to be selected in the NBA Draft, while Paul Hoffman became the BAA's (original title of the NBA) first player named Rookie of the Year in 1948. After Mel Taube's four and a half seasons, Ray Eddy, a former player and teammate of John Wooden under Lambert, took over as head coach. During his fifteen-year tenure, he coached Terry Dischinger and Dave Schellhase, both Consensus All-Americans, and Ernie Hall, the first Purdue junior college transfer and African-American player to wear a Boilermaker uniform. In 1955, his team played one of the longest games in college basketball history, lasting six overtimes in a loss to Minnesota.

1965–1980

Over the next few decades the Boilermakers would enjoy moderate success, culminating with an appearance in the 1969 NCAA Finals game under head coach George King and led by All-American Rick Mount, where they would fall to former Purdue great, John Wooden, and his UCLA Bruins squad. Former Los Angeles Lakers coach / general manager, Fred Schaus, who also spent time as West Virginia's head coach, took over the program after George King stepped down to become solely the school's athletic director. Schaus led the Boilermakers to the 1974 NIT Championship, becoming the first Big Ten team to capture the NIT title. In the 1978–79 season, new head coach Lee Rose introduced Purdue basketball to a new approach with a slowed-down, controlled style of play. With All-American center Joe Barry Carroll, he led them to the 1979 NIT Finals and to a 1980 NCAA Final Four appearance.

1980–2005

In 1980, Gene Keady, the head coach of Western Kentucky and former assistant to Eddie Sutton with the Arkansas Razorbacks, was named the new head coach of the Boilermakers. Over the next 25 years, Keady led the Boilermakers to six Big Ten Championships and 17 NCAA Tournament appearances with two Elite Eights. Purdue received their highest Associated Press and Coaches Poll ranking in its program's history during the 1987–88 season, where they were ranked as high as 2nd in the nation. In 1991, Keady and assistant coach Frank Kendrick recruited Glenn Robinson, who ultimately became an All-American and Purdue's second-named National Player of the Year. A few years later, Purdue managed to recruit the program's first of many foreign players when they picked up Matt ten Dam from the Netherlands. In December 1997, Keady became Purdue's all-time winningest head coach, surpassing Lambert with his 372nd win. He also became the second-most winningest coach in Big Ten history behind Indiana's Bobby Knight, of whom Keady went 21-20 in head-to-head meetings. Keady's namesake was bestowed on the floor of Mackey Arena. Many of Keady's former assistant coaches and players throughout the years have gone on to enjoy success as head coaches. Included in the "Gene Keady coaching tree" is current Purdue head coach Matt Painter, St. John's head coach Steve Lavin, Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings, Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber, Florida Southern head coach Linc Darner, UNC Charlotte head coach Alan Major, Tennessee head coach Cuonzo Martin, Missouri State head coach Paul Lusk and Illinois State head coach Dan Muller.

2005–present

As the Keady era came to a close in 2005, the Matt Painter era began. Painter played for Keady during the early 90's, with Keady naming him captain in his senior year in 1993. After one season at Southern Illinois as the head coach after Bruce Weber left north for Illinois, Painter was hired as a planned replacement for Coach Keady for the 2004–05 season as Keady's associate head coach. After a disappointing first season marred with injuries and suspensions from off-court altercations, Painter re-energized Purdue basketball in the summer of 2006 by signing the top recruiting class in the conference and made one of the biggest turnarounds in the program's history. His "Baby Boilers" developed into three eventual All-Americans, including 2011 consensus selection JaJuan Johnson, that led Purdue to four consecutive NCAA Tournaments and back-to-back Sweet Sixteen appearances. During the 2010 season, Matt Painter led his Boilers to a school record-tying 14–0 start, as well with the most wins in a season with a 29–6 record. The season ended in relative disappointment, however, as Junior Robbie Hummel was sidelined with an ACL injury in February of that season. The following year, and with the anticipated return of Hummel, E'Twaun Moore, and Johnson, Purdue looked poised to have one of its program's finest seasons. This excitement was quickly tempered when Hummel re-tore his ACL on the first practice of the season, sidelining him for its duration once again. Despite Hummel's absence, Purdue remained in the top ten most of the season, being ranked as high as 6th and finished the regular season with a 26–8 record. At the conclusion of the 2010–2011 season, Johnson and Moore declared for the NBA Draft. On June 23, 2011, both Johnson and Moore were drafted to the Boston Celtics in the first and second rounds, respectively. Purdue began the 2012 season with a 12-3 record, holding the fifth best home winning streak in the nation with 27, before leading the nation with the fewest turnover average per game. The home winning streak was lost during the 2012 season to Alabama. They finished with a 10-8 conference record, giving Purdue its sixth consecutive 22+ win season, the best in the program's history. During the first round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament Purdue beat Saint Mary's which marked their 14th straight opening round win, which is the longest current streak in the nation. In the 2012 NBA Draft, Robbie Hummel was the 58th overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves.
