Purdue added to non-conference basketball opponent list

Alabama still hasn’t released its men’s basketball schedule for the upcoming season, but other schools have helped fill in the gaps.

Purdue is the latest school to release a schedule that includes a road game in Tuscaloosa. Matt Painter’s team will play in Coleman Coliseum on Saturday, Dec. 12.

“Our trip to Alabama will be a great challenge for us,” said Painter said in a news release. “We are looking forward to a very competitive series.”

The only other non-conference games known to exist include a neutral-site game with Kansas State on Dec. 19 in Mobile and the Old Spice Classic to be played over Thanksgiving weekend in Orlando. I hear there is a football game that weekend so you might not be as interested in the Old Spice Classic.
