Best Places To Purchase Penn State Hoops March Madness Gear

Penn State men’s basketball is dancing for the first time since 2011!

Naturally, the next step is to purchase some school spirit to cheer on the Nittany Lions from home. Several downtown businesses and Penn State websites are selling March Madness gear to commemorate this feat.

We’ve got you covered with a list of threads just in time for gameday, when Penn State men’s basketball will take on Texas A&M at 9:55 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 16.

Family Clothesline, Nittany Outlet, The Student Book Store, & Lions Pride

Several downtown businesses are selling navy short sleeve t-shirts that say “The Big Dance.” It features a Nittany Lion logo, a basketball hoop graphic, and commemorates the year 2023.

You can purchase these at the Family Clothesline for $27.99, Nittany Outlet for $27.19, and The Student Book Store for $26.99. The Lions Pride’s version is the same design but gray and $30.

Additionally, all of these stores carry traditional “Penn State Basketball” merchandise if a classic look is more your style.


McLanahan’s is selling a navy March Madness t-shirt for $25.99. It features the Nittany Lion logo in a bracket graphic and a confident “The Road To Houston” phrase. It’s expected to arrive on gameday, and it can also be shipped for an additional $7.95.

Penn State Athletics & HUB Bookstore

Penn State Athletics and the Penn State Official Bookstore located in the HUB are selling March Madness merchandise from Fanatics. The Penn State-branded shirt is white and $39.99. It says “March Madness” in large letters, a throwback font that says “Penn State,” and the Nittany Lion logo. Up top, it says “NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship” in small, gray letters. We love the confidence.

Both of these sites also sell general NCAA Tournament gear. One, in particular, has the complete bracket on the back of the t-shirt, so folks can *officially* flex Penn State’s bid and journey to the Final Four. Prices for the dark gray t-shirt start at $42.99. There is a women’s cut and white long-sleeve version with the same design.

Fanatics also has a “Road to the Final Four” t-shirt with a basketball on the back. This shirt is $42.99 for the short sleeve and $47.99 for the long sleeve. Penn State’s Nittany Lion logo is proudly represented in the basketball graphic, alongside the logos of every team in the tournament. This shirt is icy.

The bookstore is also selling a non-specific Final Four hat for $29.99. Confidence is key, Penn State!
