Penn State Hoops Returning To Rec Hall Against Canisius and UL-Monroe

Penn State men’s basketball released its 2015-16 non-conference schedule on Tuesday afternoon, and in a much anticipated move, announced two “Return to Rec” games, despite sending an incredibly cryptic tweet earlier in the day…

We soon realized that the team was hinting towards a Return to Rec!

The Nittany Lions will take on Canisius and University of Louisiana at Monroe on Dec. 10 and 12, marking the first time the team will host a game in Rec Hall since 2013, when Princeton narrowly edged out the Lions in a 81-79 thriller. The 2013 matchup was a landmark event, as it was the first time the team hosted a contest in the legendary arena since 1996.

The team announced that it will kick the season off on Tuesday, Nov. 17 against DePaul at home. The Lions will then travel to Pittsburgh for a matchup with Duquesne that Friday, followed by a home matchup against in-state foe Bucknell.

Also on the schedule is the Hockey-Hoops doubleheader at Madison Square Garden on Jan. 30, when Penn State and Michigan’s hockey and basketball teams will have at it on the same day at Madison Square Garden.

Rec Hall boasts an electric atmosphere, giving the Lions a true home-court advantage. Let’s hope the recent trend of hosting games at the historic site continue down the road.
