Purdue and Xavier Reach Deal


The Boiling Point: In men’s basketball news, Purdue and Xavier have reached a deal to play each other

There have been rumors of Purdue and Xavier setting up a home and home series with each other. Looks like it is now official in a tweet from Xavier coach Chris Mack.

"@CoachChrisMack: Boiler Up to the Cintas Center this December…"

Xavier will then come to West Lafayette in the 2012 season. This is a solid opponent for the Boilers and will strengthen their schedule. Also, it will help their non-conference road schedule after being denied their request for a road game in B1G/ACC challenge.
