The NCAA has allowed it, and rightfully so.
A waiver has been received by Purdue from the NCAA, allowing the Boilermakers’ basketball team to play Indiana State in an exhibition game on Oct. 28 at Mackey Arena. Game time for the contest is set for 3 p.m. ET.
The proceeds from the game between the two schools will go toward hurricane relief efforts, the schools announced Thursday. Tickets for the game will go on sale Friday and are $10 for adults and $5 for Purdue students.
Tickets will also be available on game day at the Purdue Athletics Ticket Office.
Alongside the exhibition on Oct. 28, the Boilermakers are hosting “Wrestling on the Patio” at 5:30 p.m. and a football game against Nebraska at 7:30 p.m. at Ross-Ade Stadium.
Indiana State finished the 2016-17 season 11-20 overall, while Purdue finished 27-8 with a loss to No. 1-seeded Kansas in the Sweet 16.
