Purdue and 2005 Bodegas Poesia Pasodoble

Purdue breakdown - Purdue will look to keep the momentum going after winning their first ever Big Ten tournament title, which helped them recover from a 1 and 3 finish to the regular season. There is no secret to the Boilermakers' recipe for success: they'll need outstanding play from Robbie Hummel, E'Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson. All three are capable of putting up big numbers, and if they can combine that success with their physical, strong team defense, they'll be on the road to victory. But their shooters have gone cold at times, like those painful 11 minutes during which the Boilermakers made only one shot against Northwestern; a repeat of that performance will have all the pundits harping once again on the weakness of the Big Ten.

2005 Bodegas Poesia Pasodoble - The Pasodoble is a delicious smoky, fruity and spicy blend of Argentinian grapes: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (1/3 of each). Take one of these grapes away and it simply wouldn't have the balance to be a complete wine. Same holds true for Purdue: they need their three key players in top form if they hope to make it to the big dance. Pun intended.
