Northwestern hoops fans show support for Purdue after school shooting.
Northwestern hoops fans showed support for Purdue on Tuesday after a fatal shooting rocked the school.
A group of Northwestern students behind one basket had their chests painted purple with the message ''Stand with Purdue,'' a show of solidarity in the wake of an event that rattled a campus. The Boilermakers were not there when the shooting occurred. They made the 140-mile trip from West Lafayette, Ind., on Monday because there was snow in the forecast and there were no classes due to Martin Luther King Day.
