We’re a little over two months away from Purdue trip to Taiwan as part of the 2017 World University Games and this afternoon the actual schedule of pool play was announced. Purdue (playing as the United States) is in Pool C with Romania, the Czech Republic, Argentina, the United Arab Emirates, and Estonia. That schedule is as follows:

August 27 – 29 Bracket Play

Medal Bracket Play will be held in all four facilities. Team USA’s first game will be held at the Basketball Gymnasium of Heping Elementary School on August 27.

All times are local, and Taiwan is 12 hours ahead of West Lafayette, so many of these games will be going on in the middle of the night for us. It seems like the toughest game will be right off the bat against Argentina, but we’ll know more as we get closer.

In preparation for the World University Games, the USA National Team will host two exhibition games against teams to be determined prior to leaving for Chinese Taipei. On Aug. 11, the squad will play a game at Carmel High School in Carmel, Indiana, before hosting the same team Aug. 12, at Lafayette Jefferson High School.
