ESPN's John Buccigross buddies up with some Penn State hockey fans at last week's game.

ESPN’s John Buccigross buddies up with some Penn State hockey fans at last week’s game.

He gets it: Famed ESPN sportscaster John Buccigross paid a visit (his first ever) to Happy Valley last week for the Penn State v. Michigan men’s hockey game. The result is this great story, posted to Buccigross’s Hockey Life blog, about how Big 10 hockey came to be at Penn State — and how the entire community is embracing it. And you’ve got to love Buccigross’s apt description of Penn State hockey icon Joe Battista ’83—”a human energy drink.”

No more roadblocks: UPUA president Katelyn Mullen announced yesterday that the Board of Trustees is expected to approve a proposal that would add a permanent, student-selected trustee to the board— a position that isn’t currently required by BOT bylaws. The current board, however, has supported the bill since UPUA proposed it last August. Said Mullen: “The Board … has put the new policy on the most expedient schedule possible. President Masser has met with Governor Corbett and there are no roadblocks right now, to my understanding.” For more on how the student trustee will be selected, check out Onward State‘s coverage here.

High hoops: After last night’s big comeback over Indiana, here’s more good news for the men’s basketball team: senior guard Tim Frazier is a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, presented to an “exceptional” Division I student-athlete and chosen by the national media. And it’s no surprise that Lady Lion Maggie Lucas is a finalist for the women’s award, as well. Vote for both Frazier and Lucas by March 24 here. Winners will be announced during the NCAA Final Four.
