It will be the Boilermakers’ lone exhibition game in advance of their season opener Nov. 6, against Fairfield.

Tip time and a possible television assignment will be announced at a later date.

Scott Heady will be in his second year at Marian, leading the Knights to a 22-12 record and a spot in the NAIA National Tournament for the first time since the 2011-12 season. Heady was the head coach at Carmel High School before arriving at Marian, leading the Greyhounds to back-to-back Indiana 4A state championships in 2012 and 2013. One of Heady’s star players at Carmel was Purdue senior Ryan Cline, who was a member of the 2013 state champion team and runner-up to former Purdue teammate Caleb Swanigan in the Indiana Mr. Basketball voting.

Purdue is coming off a 30-7 record and its second straight appearance in the Sweet 16. Head coach Matt Painter returns one of the nation's most-exciting players in National Player of the Year candidate Carsen Edwards as well as a young, but very talented and athletic nucleus. The Boilermakers are ranked in the majority of the "way-too-early" top-25 preseason polls.

Season tickets are now available for as little as $18 a game for Purdue’s, the most-affordable way to enjoy the best atmosphere in college basketball. Last season saw Purdue fans set a school record for average attendance (14,344) while recording 10 sellouts, including the last seven games of the year.
