Purdue's 2012-13 non-conference men's basketball was announced Friday morning, a slate that includes several high-profile games for a team that will be breaking in many newcomers.
"One of the principles of scheduling is that you schedule for the team you have each particular year," Coach Matt Painter said in a released statement. "This year, we have a relatively young team and the non-conference season will be important for us. This schedule has several challenges and will help us figure out who we are heading into Big Ten play."
According to Purdue's release, the Big Ten portion of the Boilermakers' schedule is expected in the "near future."
