WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue-Indiana basketball game, originally scheduled for Feb. 14, has been postponed until Thursday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. ET due to the ongoing weather situation in the state of Indiana.
"We spent a majority of the day gathering facts," said Purdue Athletics Director Morgan Burke. "The decision comes down to the safety of everyone involved. After talking with several state and county officials, we've decided to move the game to Thursday to allow for more time to make roadways safe for travel."
Indiana University and the Big Ten Conference Office were both involved in the decision-making process.
"We will take a look at the conditions again tomorrow, but we think we can play the game on Thursday," said Burke.
Neither Purdue coach Matt Painter nor student-athletes will be available for comment.
Purdue and Indiana will be meeting for the 190th time on the basketball court.
