GOLD AND BLACK ILLUSTRATED VOLUME 27, ISSUE 5 8 Caleb Swanigan Boiler Index: Smoking Projections have Swanigan being selected in the late-first to early-second round of the June 22 NBA Draft. The Purdue sophomore is playing it smart, not hiring an agent before the May 24 deadline to decide whether to stay in the draft or return to school. Dominique Oden Boiler Index: Steaming Oden regularly proved she's belonged on the big stage late in her freshman season, as the guard hit big shot after big shot, first in the Big Ten Tournament then in the NCAA. Only a rising sophomore, she starts transitioning into Purdue leader. Mark Wasikowski Boiler Index: Smoldering Purdue baseball couldn't have asked for a much better start, as first- year coach Mark Wasikowski has re-energized the program and its fan base. As of midseason, the Boilermakers were on pace to make the Big Ten Tournament, which they hadn't done since 2012. — Kyle Charters Boiler Index Gold and Black Illustrated A publication of Boilers, Inc. 2605 Yeager Road, West Lafayette, IN 47906 765-237-5002 or 1-800-876-GOPU (4678) Fax: 765-497-2110/ President/Publisher Alan Karpick 765-237-5078 Editor Brian Neubert Publications Coordinator Kyle Charters Associate Editor/Football Stacy Clardie Photography/Cover Photo Tom Campbell Graphic Designer Gary A.
