The Boilermakers announced sophomore forward Donnie Hale will leave the team -- on the day practices begin for many around the country.
The 2013-14 season for Purdue is starting with an exit. Sophomore forward Donnie Hale is leaving the team, the school announced Friday. Matt Painter has granted Hale his release.
“Donnie has expressed his intent to transfer to be closer to home and for his desire for more playing time. We thank him for his hard work and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” Painter said in a statement.
