Penn State Will Return To Rec Hall (Again)
The Nittany Lion basketball team’s 2015-16 non-conference schedule was released today, and it includes a pair of games in Rec Hall. The games will be on Dec. 10 and 12 against Canisius and Louisiana-Monroe, respectively. Penn State most recently played in its old home in 2013.
We’ve written pretty extensively about how spectacular of a venue Rec Hall was during its halcyon days—ESPN’s Jalen Rose has even gone as far as saying it was “easily the hardest place to play in the Big Ten,” according to Grantland’s Kirk Goldsberry ’99. The venue was at its best when the Bruce Parkhill-led Lions took on top-ranked Indiana in 1993, which you can read about right here. Hopefully we see this electric environment again soon.
