The NIT Most Outstanding Player was second on the team in points and rebounds during the 2017-18 season.
Without Tony Carr and Shep Garner, a pair of incoming freshman may slot in to the Nittany Lions starting five.
Carr will hope to hear his name called June 21 in the NBA Draft.
The sophomore racked up numerous awards, including selections to the All-Big Ten first team and the conference's all-tournament team, after averaging 19.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game over the course of the season.
The Nittany Lions are hoping to win their second NIT championship in as many championship appearances.
The Nittany Lions will take on the winner of Louisville-Mississippi State on Tuesday, March 27 at Madison Square Garden.
