WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Matchups for the 2018 ACC/Big Ten Women’s Basketball Challenge were announced Monday, revealing Purdue’s meeting with the University of Miami in Mackey Arena on Thursday, Nov. 29. The contest completes the Boilermakers’ 2018-19 non-conference schedule, giving fans nine chances to watch their team play at home before Big Ten play begins late December.

The meeting will be the sixth all-time between the Boilermakers and Hurricanes, and the first-ever in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Purdue holds a 3-2 advantage in series history, which was all played between 1984 and 1991. The Hurricanes won the last meeting, edging the 10th-ranked Boilermakers in Coral Gables, Florida 65-63, and snapping Purdue’s three-game win streak in the series.

The Hurricanes finished 21-11 in 2017-18, earning a No. 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament, but falling in the first round to Quinnapiac 86-72. Miami tied for sixth in the ACC at 10-6 in conference play. The top returners for the Hurricanes are 2018 ACC All-Freshman honorees Mykea Gray and Kelsey Marshall. Gray was Miami’s No. 2 scorer last season at 11.7 points per game, starting all 32 games for the Hurricanes, while Marshall came off the bench to add 8.0 points per game.

Season tickets for the 2018-19 Purdue women’s basketball season are on sale, and can be renewed or purchased through the Purdue Athletics Ticket Office. Fans interested can purchase online or call the ticket office at 1-800-49-SPORT.
