5 Reasons to Watch Penn State Men’s Volleyball

We know it’s Easter Weekend, and most people are home. But if you’re still in State College, you need to go see the #8 Penn State Men’s Volleyball team play. The Lions are in action Friday night against Sacred Heart at 7:00 p.m. and Harvard on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. Here are 5 reasons why you should go.

Why You Should Support Penn State Men’s Volleyball This Weekend

#1. We’re REEEEALLLLY good.

Penn State is currently undefeated in the EIVA and 18-3 overall. We have some of the top players in the country in Joe Sunder, Aaron and Peter Russell, and Nick Goodell. We’re on a 5 game winning streak. What else do you need to hear?

#2. Harvard is also very good.

While Sacred Heart might be struggling (5-18 overall),#16 Harvard certainly is not. They are 2nd in the EIVA at 8-2, with one of those losses being against PSU earlier this year. The rematch should be just as entertaining as the first game.

#3. We have Joe Sunder.

Joe Sunder is the reigning EIVA Player of the Year, and is currently leading PSU with 3.61 kills per set. He already has played for the 2008 Men’s Junior National team that got 3rd in the world, and now is killing the competition in the NCAA. Last year during the Final Four, ESPN showed how high different athletes jumped, and they said Sunder jumped over 6 inches higher than LeBron James. Anyone that can do that has to be pretty entertaining no matter what sport they’re playing!

#4. There aren’t many home games left.

After this weekend series, there is only one home game left. The Lions play St. Francis (PA) on April 21 at Rec Hall. This team is going for their 12th straight Final Four, and it would be a shame to not go see them at least once before the home season ends.

#5. There’s nothing better to do.

Maybe some of your friends will still be here on Friday night, but there will be absolutely nothing to do on Saturday at 2pm. Plus, it’s free to students. There’s no excuse to not be there, so go cheer on your fellow classmates in a big conference game!
