Penn State Hoops To Face VCU December 18

Penn State men’s basketball’s non-conference schedule is continuing to take form.

According to Virginia Commonwealth University’s newly released non-conference schedule, the Rams and Nittany Lions will face off in Richmond on Saturday, December 18. A tip-off time has not been announced.

This matchup will serve as a rematch of a thrilling showdown between the two teams that ended with a Myles Dread buzzer-beater for a Penn State win. Seth Lundy was the star of the show that evening, scoring 32 points. Sam Sessoms also had 17 points off of the bench.

While VCU may seek revenge, it will be against a different Penn State team. Five new players have transferred into the program, and new head coach Micah Shrewsberry will certainly lead a new-look group of Nittany Lions.

VCU is the newest matchup added to the Nittany Lions’ non-conference schedule. So far, known opponents include Youngstown State, St. Francis (NY), and Miami (FL). Penn State will also compete in the Emerald Coast Classic against LSU and either Wake Forest or Oregon State.
