WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) _ A winter storm that swept across the Midwest on Saturday forced No. 11 Purdue to postpone its scheduled men's basketball game with No. 16 Minnesota.

The Boilermakers were scheduled to open their Big Ten season at 2 p.m. against the Golden Gophers.

The game is tentatively scheduled for Sunday at 6 p.m., but could be postponed again if bad weather continues, Purdue spokesman Greg Zawisza said.
