Penn State Hoops’ Home Finale Against Nebraska Moved To February 27

Penn State men’s basketball will conclude its regular-season home slate at the Bryce Jordan Center one day earlier than expected.

The Nittany Lions’ finale against Nebraska is now slated for 7 p.m. on Sunday, February 27, the team announced on Tuesday. Previously, the game was set for Monday, February 28, but a schedule alteration within Nebraska’s program flexed the Nittany Lions’ home conclusion to a weekend finish.

All previously purchased tickets for the matchup with Nebraska are still valid for the new date, Penn State said.

The weekend window will allow the Cornhuskers to regroup before facing off against Ohio State in Columbus on Tuesday, March 1. Originally, Fred Hoiberg’s squad was set to play the Buckeyes on January 22, but COVID-19 cases within Nebraska’s program forced the Big Ten conference to postpone and reschedule the game.

Although the Nebraska matchup will round out the home schedule for Penn State, the Nittany Lions still have three games at the Bryce Jordan Center remaining. After Tuesday’s 9 p.m. battle with Michigan, Michigan State and Minnesota will both travel to Happy Valley next week on Tuesday, February 15, and Thursday, February 17, respectively.

Following the Nittany Lions’ final home stretch, Micah Shrewsberry and company will round out its regular season with a two-game road trip against Illinois and Rutgers.
