INDIANAPOLIS — Just one week before each school plays its first game, the 2020-21 men's basketball schedules for Indiana University and Purdue were released Wednesday.
For months, the schools and the Big Ten Conference have been working on scenarios that would allow games to be played in the midst of a pandemic. The result is a 27-game schedule for the Hoosiers and Boilermakers—including 20 conference games.
There will be no fans in the stands at Assembly Hall and Mackey Arena.
Indiana opens with a November 25 home game against Tennessee Tech. The Hoosiers then play three games in the Maui Invitational, which will not be played in Hawaii. Instead, the tournament was moved to Asheville, NC.
Indiana returns home for a December 13 meeting with Northern Alabama. On the 19th, the Hoosiers take on Butler in the Crossroads Classic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
IU begins conference play hosting Northwestern, December 23. Purdue travels to Bloomington on Jan 14 and Indiana will play the Boilermakers again on March 6 at Mackey arena.
