It didn't over the summer, when Purdue represented Team USA in the World University Games.

In the gold medal game, which Purdue lost to Lithuania, the Boilermakers were out-rebounded 44-32.

In a massive turnaround, Purdue looked great on the boards Wednesday night against Rutgers.

The Scarlet Knights are the number two team in the country in total rebounds this season; but Purdue grabbed 45 rebounds Wednesday, to just 27 for Rutgers.
