Penn State, Pitt Hoops To Headline 2017 Legends Classic

Penn State basketball hits the big stage this fall. CBSSports’ Jon Rothstein announced Penn State will join Pitt, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M for the 2017 Legends Classic at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The Legends Classic is a top-tier early-season tournament that features upper-echelon talent facing off against one another as a tune-up for the rigors of the regular season. The Lions participate next season during the 2017-18 season.

This season’s tournament headliners included Notre Dame, Texas, Northwestern, and Colorado.

The early-season tournament should be a good benchmark for the Nittany Lions as they figure to head into next year with a promising young team and higher expectations. Texas A&M offers a similar challenge after embarking on a run in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

The tournament’s dates haven’t been set yet, but the match ups figure to be an exciting spectacle featuring a promising young Nittany Lions team.
