On Sunday afternoon, Purdue won its biggest game of the year when the Boilmakers beat Ohio State at home, 76-63. Purdue’s student section, The Paint Crew, had as much fun during the win as you would expect and then some. In the second half with Purdue leading by only five, Jared Sullinger stepped to the line to shoot free throws. The entire student section began belting out Miley Cyrus’ Party in the USA, ragging on Sullinger for the video he and his teammates made back in January. Sullinger hit both free throws, but we’re giving the Paint Crew an A for creativity anyway. Here’s the video, courtesy of SI Hot Clicks via The Dagger:
Sullinger tweeted after the game that he “loved it” and “it almost made (him) laugh,” so at least he was a good sport about it. As The Dagger mentioned, Clark Kellogg and Verne Lundquist failed to even mention what was going on while the student section was singing. A coordinated effort like that deserves a little recognition. Stiffs.
