Purdue set to leave for Wisconsin

With a winter storm warning in effect until Wednesday night for much of Indiana, Purdue's travel plans could change this week.

The No. 11 Boilermakers left Monday for Wisconsin, which hosts Purdue at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

Purdue's supervisor of basketball operations Elliot Bloom coordinates the team's travel, coach Matt Painter said. Painter expects Bloom to be in constant contact with the charter service the team uses.

"I think we're going to be fine to get there. I don't know if we're going to be fine to get out," Painter said during his teleconference with reporters Monday morning. "When you charter it's a little bit different than driving. You've just got to wait to kind of let it pass. It's supposed to get like 12 to 18 inches, so it's going to be interesting."

Painter said if the weather is too bad to travel, the team will stay the night in Madison, Wis. That'd mean missing another day of school but not practice. Painter is giving the team Wednesday off.
