Football Autograph Session to be Held Before Basketball Game Tomorrow

Football Saturdays at Beaver Stadium migh be over until next fall, but the 2012 senior class will be at the Bryce Jordan Center tomorrow afternoon for an autograph session before Penn State Basketball faces Army.

With tipoff between the Nittany Lions and Black Knights set for 4 p.m., autographs will begin on the concourse at 3.m. In addition to the seniors, some younger Nittany Lions who won awards may also participate. In order to keep what is likely to be a long line of fans moving efficiently, posing for photos will not be permitted and players can only sign one item per fan, but the recognition will not stop there.

Bill O’Brien and the entire team will be honored at halftime, and so will some of the armed forces as part of Military Appreciation Day.

In terms of actual basketball, the Nittany Lions (4-4) will be looking to rebound from a 25-point road loss to LaSalle Wednesday night against the Black Knights (4-3) who snapped a two-game losing streak with a 34-point Victory over Marist on Tuesday. The Black Knights are led by senior forward Ella Ellis who leads the team in rebounding, blocks and scoring, averaging 19.2 points per game. Freshman Kyle Wilson is second on the team in points, averaging 12.3 per game with a .492 shooting percentage from the field.

Through their first eight games, the Nittany Lions have alternated between wins and losses, and that pattern should continue here as they attempt to start a four-game homestand — and the final stretch of non-conference games — on a positive note.
