Paint Crew

900 John R. Wooden Drive West Lafayette, IN 47907-2117

Once known as the Gene Pool (after legendary men's basketball coach Gene Keady), the Paint Crew (named for current coach Matt Painter) is comprised of more than 1,000 of our loudest, most passionate students.

This group is the reason Mackey Arena can reach 120+ decibels during a game. (The aluminum roof helps, too). You'll find the Paint Crew camping out before a big game, sometimes days ahead of time.
