Penn State Hoops To Host Second Annual ‘Shrews’ Slamma Jamma’ October 26

“Shrews’ Slamma Jamma” is back for year two, folks.

To get the student body in gear for the upcoming basketball season, head coach Micah Shrewsberry and the Penn State men’s basketball team are hosting the “Shrews’ Slamma Jamma” event for the second year in a row, the team announced on Thursday. The event will take place at 7 p.m. on October 26 at the East Halls basketball court.

Fans who attend the event will have the opportunity to meet Shrewsberry and some of the players. This year’s roster boasts familiar faces like Jalen Pickett and Seth Lundy, while also introducing the highest-rated recruiting class in program history with new names like Jameel Brown and Kebba Njie.

In addition to the opportunity to meet Shrewsberry and the players, those in attendance will be offered some free food and a chance to compete in games for some prizes.

Shrewsberry is entering his second season as head coach of Penn State after finishing last season with a 14-17 record. Despite the losing record, the Nittany Lions went 10-5 at home and have a lot of optimistic fans for the upcoming season.

Penn State men’s basketball opens its season in about a month, with its opening matchup at home against Winthrop. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m., and fans who can’t make it to the Bryce Jordan Center can watch the game on BTN+.
