Penn State Hoops To Open Big Ten Tournament Against Minnesota March 9

Penn State men’s basketball will face Minnesota to open the 2022 Big Ten Tournament, the conference announced on Sunday.

The Nittany Lions’ postseason matchup is tentatively set for about 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, in Indianapolis. Tip-off might fluctuate a bit if Wednesday’s earlier evening game runs long.

Penn State (12-16, 7-13 Big Ten) will play as the tournament’s No. 11 seed due to tiebreaker scenarios after finishing the season tied for 10th. Minnesota (13-16, 4-16 Big Ten) will play as the No. 14 seed.

The winner of Wednesday’s matchup will go on to face No. 6 seed Ohio State at 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 10.

Penn State and Minnesota alternated wins throughout the regular season. After the Gophers won in Minneapolis 76-70 on February 12, the Nittany Lions beat Minnesota 67-46 at the Bryce Jordan Center on February 17.

Minnesota is 4-0 against Penn State all-time in the Big Ten Tournament. The last time the two teams met in the postseason was in 2019 when No. 10 seed Penn State fell to No. 7 seed Minnesota 77-72.
