Penn State Basketball Schedule Starting to Take Shape

This afternoon, the Big Ten released the “single-play” opponents for the 2011-12 basketball season, and Penn State looks to have drawn well. The Nittany Lions will host Illinois and Minnesota and travel to Michigan State and Ohio State.

The only downside to this for Penn State is losing the opportunity to host two marquee opponents that usually fill the Bryce Jordan Center, though it does mean that Wisconsin and Purdue will be traveling to Happy Valley. Each Big Ten team will play seven opponents twice and four once.

The Lady Lions will host Indiana, Iowa, and Ohio State once and will play at Illinois, Northwestern, and Purdue next season, according to Lady Lions SID Kris Petersen.

UPDATE (3:52 PM): Tipoff dates and times were also announced for the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament (thanks to @Ben_Jones88 for the link). Below are the dates, times, and opponents for Penn State’s games:

At the Bryce Jordan Center:

Monday, Nov. 14: Radford University

Wednesday, Nov. 16: Long Island University

At Mohegan Sun Arena (Uncasville, CT)

Saturday, Nov. 19: Kentucky (12pm)

Sunday, Nov. 20: Old Dominion/Central Florida (2pm)
