Purdue didn't shoot a great percentage -- 43 from the field and 33 percent on three-pointers -- in its first game at the United Center. But players thought the shooting background was a good one.
"It was definitely fun playing," said E'Twaun Moore, who made 7 of 15 shots against Saint Peter's. "Shooting, it feels pretty good. Hopefully, the ball will fall for us (Sunday)."
Lewis Jackson, who is from Illinois, said he loved playing where his home state Bulls play. He made four of five shots, including several jumpers.
"It just felt great, finally playing in the United Center for the first time ever," he said. "Had a good shooting night and just getting that win was really special."
