Purdue's Haas opts to return for final season

Purdue coach Matt Painter said the Boilermakers are "excited" that 7-foot-2 center Isaac Hass has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft and will remain with the team.

Purdue AD Mike Bobinski said basketball coaches have "unanimous support" for protected rivalries that would ensure biannual games. Purdue-Indiana and Michigan-Michigan State are the two big ones, and Northwestern-Illinois also was brought up. "I don't know if we'll be able to get to it for this year," Bobinski said, "but I think we'll get there for the reasonably near future, which is good."

Stay in school, or enter draft?

The odds of Caleb Swanigan returning to Purdue are slim. One NBA exec said, "I don't see how he improves his stock coming back."

Purdue offered 2018 point guard Jaelin Llewellyn, per his coach.

Purdue's Caleb Swanigan is in heady company going into the NBA Draft after leading the nation in double-doubles. Swanigan put up the numbers of a high lottery pick, but hasn't generated the kind of draft buzz as his predecessors.

Kentucky's Bam Adebayo declares for the draft but won't hire an agent. He should be in Chicago for the NBA draft combine now. That's great for the event. It will also give him a clearer picture about where he stands before making a decision about returning. Purdue's Caleb Swanigan did the same thing last season and turned into a player of the year finalist.

Purdue president Mitch Daniels told us on Capital Games that he would like to see schools keep open scholarships if a player leaves after one year. That would mean a school couldn't replace him until he would have finished his eligibility. Would be a tough sell for schools like Kentucky and Duke: http://es.pn/2nxRv2m

Purdue Pres.: One-and-done rule 'doesn't work'

Purdue President Mitch Daniels chats with Andy Katz and Rick Klein about the boilermakers' run in the NCAA Tournament, disagreements he's had with the NCAA on rules, some potential ideas he's floated regarding "one-and-dones" and more.

If Kansas isn't playing the best basketball out of the teams remaining, I don't know who is. The Jayhawks dispatched Purdue 98-66 to set up an Elite Eight showdown with Oregon on Saturday.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Purdue had a total of 20 turnovers in its first two NCAA games. The Boilermakers need just five more this game to finish with as many. They had six turnovers over the six minutes of Kansas' run that may have broken it open for good.

Feels like every shot Purdue's Caleb Swanigan attempts has been an ordeal. Kansas' Landon Lucas not allowing him to get anything easy. Aside from when he steps outside for a 3-point attempt, Swanigan has had to fight for every inch.

Make-or-break player: Vince Edwards

Matt Painter knows what he's getting from Caleb Swanigan, it's what he gets from Edwards that will make the difference.
