Men’s Basketball to Play in 2014 Charleston Classic

Penn State men’s basketball will compete as one of the eight participants in next year’s Charleston Classic, the athletic department announced today.

The tournament will be held November 20-23, 2014 at the TD Arena in Charleston, South Carolina. So far, the other teams announced in the tournament are Akron, Cornell, Miami (Fla.), South Carolina, and Southern California. The last two teams will be announced at a later date.

Penn State last played in the tournament in 2009, where they went 1-2. The Talor Battle-led Nittany Lions lost to UNC Wilmington and Tulane before defeating Davidson.

The Nittany Lions will play three games in three days in a bracket style competition, and should be a good test for how next year’s team will do without Tim Frazier. Miami, Southern California, and South Carolina are consistently solid programs, while Cornell and Akron are two mid-majors who perpetually compete for spots in the NCAA Tournament. Personally, I’m hoping for a USC vs. USC matchup at some point.

Individual tickets and travel packages are not available yet, but there will be information released on the tournament’s official website in the coming weeks.
