Purdue men's basketball will play an exhibition game before its season-opener against Division II Southern Indiana at Mackey Arena on Nov. 1, the Boilermakers announced. Tip time and broadcast information will be released at a later date.
The matchup is Purdue's only exhibition game before it begins its regular-season schedule Nov. 5 against Green Bay at Mackey.
