3 game series. Lost at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette to #22 Purdue 82-62 on 12/27/2003. Lost at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis 62-61 on 12/18/2004. Won at Roberts Stadium 75-69 on 12/03/2005. Matt Painter was the losing coach. Purdue had only 7 scholarship players that season having lost 2 starters to injury.
