    Default Bulls and Pacers to play a preseason game at Notre Dame's Purcell Pavilion

    http://www.wndu.com/sports/headlines...162736576.html

    The NBA is coming back to Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center.

    The University of Notre Dame and the Chicago Bulls announced Tuesday that the Chicago Bulls will play their final exhibition game of the 2012-13 preseason against the Indiana Pacers at 7 p.m. (ET) on Friday, Oct. 26 at Purcell Pavilion.

    Notre Dame has played host to several NBA preseason contests in the 43-year history of the building; the last time was in October 1995 when Chicago played the Seattle Supersonics. This year's Bulls-Pacers matchup is part of seven preseason games for Chicago.

    Tickets for the game will go on sale at Notre Dame's Murnane Family Athletics Ticket Office at 8:30 a.m. (ET) on Tuesday, Sept. 11 and can also be purchased at www.und.com/tickets or by calling (574) 631-7356.

    The Bulls' game at Notre Dame is one of two neutral site contests on a college campus during their preseason. Chicago will meet the Cleveland Cavaliers in Champaign, Ill., on Friday, Oct. 12.

    "We're excited to once again have the opportunity to host an NBA preseason game at Purcell Pavilion," Irish head coach Mike Brey says. "John (Paxson) and I have been talking the last couple of years about how we could make this happen. The game against Chicago and Indiana is a natural fit with both of those teams in close proximity to Notre Dame."

    The Pacers played the Raptors in Ft. Wayne when I was in middle school. It meant so much to me because I was already obsessed, and my family couldn't afford to go to Indy for a game.

    This is an important part of building the fan base. Hopefully, the Pacers can win some of the hearts and minds of the region kids.

    Sorry, I think the Bulls did that already. We cant even win our own city over from Bulls fans.

    Yea, unfortunately, South Bend is already out in Bulls country. Pretty sure its 'uncool' to like the Pacers for anyone 100 miles north of downtown

    Well it's better to try than to give in. You never know. Look at the international fans right here at Digest.

    Live exposure goes a long way to improving awareness and getting more fan buy-in.

    They renovated it a couple years ago and the complex is still the Joyce Center but the basketball part of it's the Purcell Pavilion. Donations thing. The official name's "Purcell Pavilion at The Joyce Center" or something.
