‘Don’t Sleep On Penn State’: Fans React To Penn State Hoops’ NCAA Tournament Bid

Get your dancing shoes on!

Penn State men’s basketball is heading to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2011. It will open tournament play as the No. 10 seed against No. 7 seed Texas A&M at 8:55 p.m. on Thursday, March 16, in Des Moines, Iowa.

In an eventful Sunday afternoon, the Nittany Lions appeared in the Big Ten Tournament Championship and then heard their name called on Selection Sunday for the Big Dance. Fans took to Twitter in celebration of Penn State playing meaningful basketball in March for the first time in 12 years.

Some fans weren’t happy with Penn State’s draw and weren’t shy to share their thoughts.

Others were a little salty. Not all of us can win five out of the last six regular-season games, I suppose.

Still, the Penn State hoops love ran deep.
