'Tip-Off' slated for Oct. 12

Oct. 12, the Friday night of Homecoming weekend and the night before the Purdue football team faces Wisconsin, the Boilermaker basketball teams will open preseason with their version of a Midnight Madness event.

Purdue announced on Thursday plans for "The Tip-Off Before The Kickoff," the basketball portion of an evening's full of events.

According to the athletic department's announcement, the tentative schedule for the "Tip-Off" - Mackey Arena doors will open at 8 p.m. - includes the following.

A performance by a musical recording artist.

Introductions of both the men's and women's basketball teams and a "performance" by both teams.

Shooting and dunk competitions.

Comments from head coaches Matt Painter and Sharon Versyp.

The "Tip-Off" marks the first Midnight Madness-type event Purdue has held since 2008, due to the renovation work done to Mackey Arena.
