        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION congratulating Robbie Hummel.

    Whereas, Robbie Hummel was named the Most Valuable Player of the Big Ten Tournament held at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis;

    Whereas, Robbie had nine points, 11 rebounds, and five assists for Purdue in the championship game;

    Whereas, The six-foot, eight-inch small forward from Valparaiso instills fear in the defense of Purdue's opponents with his great shooting and ball handling abilities;

    Whereas, Robbie is not a conventional power forward in the Big Ten and opposing teams have a hard time dealing with him;

    Whereas, If opponents use a big man to guard him, Robbie will drive to the basket and score; if they use a guard to defend against him, Robbie will simply post up or shoot the three;

    Whereas, Robbie Hummel has spent most of this season dealing with lower back problems, but he is healthy again and is a contributing factor in the Boilermakers' efforts in the NCAA Tournament; and

    Whereas, Coach Matt Painter says that Robbie Hummel is "... more than just points and rebounds. He brings a lot of

intangibles to the table.": Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives

of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana,

the Senate concurring:

    SECTION 1. That the Indiana General Assembly congratulates Robbie Hummel on being named the Big Ten Tournament Most Valuable Player and wishes him success in all his future endeavors.
    SECTION 2. That the Principal Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a copy of this resolution to Robbie Hummel, Head Coach Matt Painter, Athletic Director Morgan Burke, and Purdue University President France A. Cordova.
