Purdue junior guard P.J. Thompson nailed a halfcourt shot to end a fun first half in the Purdue/Villanova game on Monday night.

The atmosphere at Mackey Arena is pretty big-time right now, especially for an early-season game. Thompson’s shot tied this game 39-all heading into half.

No. 3 Villanova eventually outlasted No. 15 Purdue for a nice road win.
