No. 1 Purdue to defend top ranking at Rutgers

Purdue will have a new experience in its storied basketball history Thursday night when it plays its first game ever as the No. 1 team in the country.

The Boilermakers (8-0, 1-0 Big Ten), who ascended to the top spot Monday, will face struggling Rutgers (4-4, 0-1) in Piscataway, N.J.

"Maybe it shines a little more light on us" in terms of publicity, Purdue coach Matt Painter said on his weekly radio show. "It's a good problem to have (that) people are gunning for you, but if we were second, third, fourth or fifth they would still be gunning for us. You're still in that position."
