Basketball Team to Hold Open Practice

Fans will have a chance to get their first look at this year’s revamped Nittany Lion basketball squad on Saturday at the Bryce Jordan Center. The event begins at 11 a.m. and will allow the public to watch the team practice from inside the BJC. The practice will be followed by a meet-and-greet with players and coaches along with refreshments, prizes, and giveaways.

Personally, I am excited to finally watch Patrick Chambers in action. Ever since Coach Chambers was hired by Penn State this summer, his energy and enthusiasm have been constantly hyped. Some have even described him as crazy. Plus, with Tim Frazier acting as the only guaranteed starter (not counting Cammeron Woodyard due to injury or Billy Oliver for, well, other reasons), it’s going to be a fight to fill the remaining four positions. Taking into account the seven new players on the roster, everything is up for grabs.

The event is advertised as open only to those with season tickets or Penn State Hoops Club members. However, if you are a student without tickets who wants to go, I can’t imagine Penn State basketball turning away any fan support at the door. The departed Ed DeChellis used to hold a preseason open practice as well, and it was a great time to ask questions of the coaching staff and players. Not to mention, I was always able to walk away with more Penn State basketball junk than I could carry.
