Purdue Basketball Releases Non-Conference Schedule

Not too many surprises here, but it's nice to finally see the full non-conference schedule for the 2010-2011 season. 

 At first glance, I'd like to see a little more competition to prepare for the grueling Big Ten season. Luckily, with the talent and leadership this year's squad , I am not too worried about a lack of preparation.

Nov. 14 vs. Howard

Nov. 17vs. Alcorn State

Nov. 21 vs. Oakland

Nov. 23vs. Austin Peay

Nov. 26 vs. Southern Illinois (at Chicago)

Nov. 27 TBA (at Chicago)

Dec. 1 at Virginia Tech

Dec. 4 vs. Alabama

Dec. 7 at Valparaiso

Dec. 11 vs. North Florida

Dec. 18vs. Indiana State (at Conseco Fieldhouse)

Dec. 21vs. IPFW

Jan. 16 at West Virginia

 Purdue is counting on a solid Big Ten season to make the case for the #1 seed. The strength of the Big Ten this year should compensate for any non conference schedule strength deficiencies. I could potentially seeing Purdue's PRI being an issue until inter-league play; however, it should all come out in the wash come March.

We'll elaborate on Purdue's schedule in greater details once we have a chance to digest it fully.
