Penn State Men’s Basketball Calls For White Out Against Ohio State Thursday

Penn State men’s basketball has been climbing up the Big Ten standings after winning five of its last six games, and now needs its fans’ support for the last couple weeks of the regular season. The Nittany Lions have a tough matchup against Ohio State at home on Thursday at 8 p.m. and Coach Chambers is taking a page out of Coach Franklin’s book.

That’s right: Penn State hoops is smashing the White Out button.

Much like how Franklin wants a White Out for the biggest football games, the game against Ohio State is arguably the most crucial game left on the season.

Tony Carr’s buzzer-beating half-court heave lifted the Nittany Lions over the Buckeyes in Columbus last month, giving the team a load of confidence that’s left it undefeated since then save for a loss on the road to No. 4 Michigan State since that upset over Ohio State.

The Nittany Lions enter a tough part of their schedule, playing Ohio State, Purdue, Michigan, and Nebraska to close out the season. All four teams are ranked ahead of Penn State in the Big Ten standings, but closing out the season strong could lead Coach Chambers’ unit to an NCAA Tournament berth.
