      Gene Keady became Purdue’s all-time-winning coach in 1997.
      in this same year, honoring of Keadys remarkable victories holding

      The court still holds the name today and host some of the greatest
      teams in the nation.
    • Keady Court: Hosting some of the greatest teams in the nation
      Keady court has a great tradition of hosting some of the finest teams in that nation Including our conference. The Big Ten conference in known to be one of the hardest Basketball conferences in the nation. Not only does Purdue host many conference games, but also drags the attention to other conference teams like Tennessee and last years NCAA champs Duke whom developed NBA stars.
    • Keady Court: Developing Stars!
      Carl Landry was a former Boilermaker,
      under current head coach, Matt Painter. Landry became the only Big Ten player to hold three consecutive Big Ten Player of the Week Honors.
      Carl was drafted in the NBA by
      Seattle SuperSonics in the

      Current head coach Matt Painter takes over the court for the
      2005-2006 basketball season. Painter, with a rough start, finishing
      the season with a 9-19 record, has been developing one of the
      finest teams in the nation.

      champs. The team was lead by E,Twaun Moore, Robbie Hummel,
      JaJuan Johnson, and Chris Kramer whom all were considered to be
      called the fantastic four. The Purdue Boilermakers were nation ranked as high as fourth last season leading them to the Sweet Sixteen. Although the Boilermakers are loosing Chris Kramer next season, they are still considered to be the nations number one team in the 2010-2011 preseason rankings.
    • Keady Court… Taking Over Traditions!
      Purdue University is traditional identified as an engineering school but over the years
      has become a basketball university. Mackey Arena gives off a competitive feeling when
      entering the doom and will always and forever give off that smell of defeat. The Arena
      will never stop carrying out traditions and will become bigger than ever after the
      82 million dollar complex added to Mackey.
