Penn State Basketball to Play Foreign Tour in Europe

Penn State basketball will be spending a week in Europe this coming August, playing teams in England, France and Belgium, per head coach Pat Chambers and the athletic department.

While the announcement of the tour, which will span from August 10-17 in Brussels, Antwerp, Paris, and London, is certainly big news, the biggest news for Penn State basketball fans is that redshirt senior point guard Tim Frazier is likely to play on the tour. Frazier sat out last season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in the team’s third game of the season. Penn State’s women’s basketball team went on a similar tour before the season last year.

The announcement is another in what has been an action-packed offseason for the Nittany Lions: two players transferred, the team announced that they will play in a early season tournament in Brooklyn and last year’s second leading scorer Jermaine Marshall has announced that he will forgo his senior season to play professionally.

Little is known about what teams Penn State will play and what else they will be doing on the tour, but Onward State will keep you updated.
