According to the release, the Boilermakers will travel to Spain and Portugal, making stops in Barcelona, Porto and Lisbon from Aug. 5-15. Purdue coach Katie Geralds played professional basketball in both countries.

“The Boilermakers will depart for Europe on Aug. 5 on a flight from Chicago to Barcelona,” the statement said. “Purdue will visit Barcelona (Aug. 6-10), Porto (Aug. 10-12) and Lisbon (Aug. 12-15).

“The Boilermakers will play three games with opponents and dates to be announced later.”

Purdue finished the 2023-24 college basketball season with a 15-19 record. The Boilermakers participated in the WNIT, reaching the Great 8 before falling to Vermont.

Geralds, a Purdue alum, completed her third season as the coach of the Boilermakers. In her first two seasons, she led the team to winning records, finishing 17-15 in 2021-22 and going 19-11 in 2022-23. Purdue has played in the postseason in each of Geralds’ three seasons — twice in the WNIT and once in the NCAA Tournament.

In three seasons with the Boilermakers, Geralds owns a 51-45 record.
