Penn State Basketball to Hold Open Practice

Penn State basketball fans will have a chance to get their first look at this year’s Nittany Lion men’s basketball team as the squad hosts an open practice on Saturday at the Bryce Jordan Center. The practice begins at 10 a.m. and will be followed by a meet-and-greet with players and coaches along with pizza, refreshments, prizes, and giveaways. The practice will also feature an intrasquad scrimmage and should end around noon.

The event is being held for 2012-13 season ticket holders (adults and students) and Penn State Hoops Club members only. Fans are being asked to enter through the east side Founders’ entrance at the BJC and present a valid form of identification.

Season tickets for students, which cost only $40, will continue to be sold in the HUB for the rest of the week. Student season ticket sales have already surpassed the total from last season.

Despite the team’s struggles last year, it should be exciting to get a glimpse into the team in year two under Pat Chambers. Like I’ve mentioned before, there are plenty of reasons to be excited for the season — and Saturday is the first chance to see the team’s progression. Plus, as you can see below, Chambers’ practices are always fast-paced and intense to watch.
