Josh Reaves Rumored To Be Available For Penn State Hoops Game Against Ohio State

Update, 6:52 p.m. — Penn State men’s basketball confirmed that Reaves will be available for the game against the Buckeyes.

“He has addressed an academic matter and is able to compete for the remainder of the season,” the team said in a statement.


Original Story:

Starting guard Josh Reaves has been a head-scratching absence in each of Penn State men’s basketball’s last four games, but he will likely play tonight against No. 13 Ohio State, according to The Columbus Dispatch‘s Adam Jardy.

The junior has been held out due to “an academic concern” since January 9. In that time frame, the Nittany Lions have gone 1-3 amidst their depth problems — falling to Indiana, Minnesota, and Northwestern, while scrapping out an overtime win over Nebraska.

Head coach Pat Chambers has not delved into the situation much, just declaring that he hoped Reaves would be available soon.

The double figure-averaging scorer appeared like he would miss this road clash as well, with Jardy claiming he did not fly out with the team. However, the Ohio State beat writer said that Reaves was driven to Columbus Thursday for the game.

Penn State tips off at against the Buckeyes at 8 p.m. Thursday night. All the action from Value City Arena will be live on BTN.
