Report: WVU, Purdue, Set To Meet In NYC Hoops Event Next Season


According to a tweet from college basketball reporter Jon Rothstein, West Virginia and Purdue will meet in men’s basketball on December 13, 2020, in New York City. Florida is scheduled to play Penn State in the other half of a doubleheader.

That the Boilermakers and Mountaineers have reportedly worked out such an agreement comes as no surprise. The teams have met multiple times over the past few years in the “secret scrimmage” that each Division I team is allowed prior to the start of the season.

West Virginia is 1-7 all-time against Purdue, with its lone win coming on January 16, 2011 at the WVU Coliseum. The Boliers took both ends of a home-and-home series in the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons, marking the last meetings between the two teams.

Bob Huggins is 3-3 overall against Purdue, with the other two wins coming while he was at Cincinnati.

WVU routinely plays in at least one holiday event each year that spans multiple games, and often doubles up on that with a second, one-off game as described by Rothstein. WVU is also committed to two non-conference games each year via the Big 12 – SEC Challenge and the Big 12 – Big East Scheduling Alliance.

Following are West Virginia’s recent such single games:

2019-20  Cleveland Classic  Ohio State
2018-19  Basketball Hall of Fame Holiday Showcase  Rhode Island
2018-19 Jimmy V Classic  Florida
2017-18  Armed Forces Classic  Texas A&M
2015-16  Jimmy V Classic  Virginia
2014-15  Gotham Classic  N.C. State
2012-13  Brooklyn Hoops Winter Festival Michigan

WVU is 2-5 in these contests, with wins over Ohio State and N.C. State.

    That will be an interesting matchup.  We’ve scrimmaged Purdue pre season in the past.   They beat us out for recruit from Butler, PA, Ethan Mortan a 4*SG this year.  Their recruiting has taken off with that class #23 in the country and they have a 4* PF in the ’21 class.

    I’ll probably go to that one.  I like NYC during the Christmas season.  Ought to be a very good game.

    Nothing better than Christmas in NYC.  Been there many times.  Used to go to NYC about 2X / yr.  Didn’t go at all last year or Christmas prior because it has just turned into a dump.  Homeless sleeping on the streets outside of almost every theater.  Most are obviously high or drunk.  Panhandling on every corner.  Cops used to make them move out of the tourist areas.  But not any more.  It’s pathetic to see them like this, but it also gives the city a bad image.
