A Buzz-Worthy Start for Nittany Lion Hoops
Patrick Chambers made it clear when he was hired as men’s basketball that he would do all he could to generate interest in the program. The details of his first game in charge make it clear he wasn’t kidding. On Saturday, Nov. 12—the same day the Nittany Lion football team hosts Big Ten newcomer Nebraska at Beaver Stadium—Chambers’ squad will open its 2011-12 season against Hartford in the Bryce Jordan Center. And the kicker? Admission to the basketball game will be free.
Start times for both games are yet to be determined; fans should probably plan on making a day of it regardless.
