Purdue head coach praises Husker basketball fan support


Purdue men’s basketball head coach Matt Painter praises Nebraska basketball fan support. WATCH:

 “For Nebraska, they have great fans. Indiana has great fans. You know you’re going to go into a hostile environment. To be able to come here in blizzard-like conditions and see all these fans, it’s pretty cool. It shows the loyalty and support they get here at Nebraska,” Painter said. “Just hostile environments in the Big Ten. I think our attendance has been the No. 1 in the country as a conference for 43 years. It speaks for itself, but we have great venues. If you got to go on the road and play, you know it’s going to be difficult. It doesn’t matter if that team is ranked first in your league or 14th in your league, it does not matter. You know it’s going to be difficult.”
