WEST LAFAYETTE (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Over 6300 fans turned out at Mackey Arena Saturday to see Purdue's past and present basketball players in the Alumni Game.

Current Purdue players teamed up with past stars like Brian Cardinal, Troy Lewis, Todd Mitchell, and Chris Kramer for a sprited game won by the Gold over the Black 73-70.

The star of the day was former coach Gene Keady, showing his now natural white hair for the first time many can remember.

The game was the last action for the current Purdue players before they leave for a four game ten day tour of Italy.
