Men’s Basketball Non-Conference Schedule Announced

Penn State men’s basketball took to Instagram to announce its 2014 non-conference schedule, and it includes some familiar faces among the beginnings of a few new series.

Here you have it:

Friday, Nov. 14: Morgan State
Sunday, Nov. 16: Fordham
Nov. 20, 21, 23: Charleston Classic
Tuesday, Nov. 25: Akron
Friday, Nov. 28: at Bucknell
Wednesday, Dec. 3: Virginia Tech
Saturday, Dec. 6: at Marshall
Wednesday, Dec. 10: Duquesne
Sunday, Dec. 14: George Washington
Saturday, Dec. 20: Drexel (neutral site)
Monday, Dec. 22: Dartmouth

The Nittany Lions will play only two true road games before its Big Ten slate gets underway. Familiar foes Akron, Bucknell, and Duquesne return to the schedule, and Penn State will visit Marshall after hosting it in 2013. As already known, the Lions drew Virginia Tech in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge, and will begin two-year series with both Drexel and George Washington.

The rest of the teams competing in the Charleston Classic in late November are Akron, Charlotte, Cornell, Drexel, Miami (Fla.), South Carolina, and USC, but the bracket has yet to be announced. The dates for Penn State’s Big Ten games haven’t been announced either, but it’s known that the Lions will play Wisconsin, Ohio State, Minnesota, Maryland, and Rutgers home and away; Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, and Purdue at home; and Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State and Northwestern on the road.

Last season’s 16-18 record was a mighty letdown, but spirits have risen this summer after some big commitments to Patrick Chambers that currently has the 2015 class ranked ninth by 247Sports.
