Penn State to Face Temple in NCAA Tournament

Penn State is in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in a decade, as they were selected as a 10-seed in the NCAA West region on Sunday evening. The Nittany Lions will take on the seventh-seeded Temple Owls in Tuscon, Arizona on Thursday at 2:10. The game will be televised on TNT, according to CBS’ Tim Cary.

The last time Penn State was in the NCAA Tournament was in 2001 (photo above) where they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen, losing to none other than a John Chaney-led Temple team after defeating Providence and upsetting the second-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels behind the play of the Crispin brothers.

All but left for dead at the beginning of the Big Ten Tournament, Penn State rattled off wins over Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan State before falling to Ohio State in Sunday’s final to play their way into the Big Dance.

Ticket information will be available at GoPSUSports on Monday for those interested in making the trip.
