FanPost

Dear Penn State Fans,

I am writing to let you know you also have a basketball program in Happy Valley. I felt embarrassed as a fan of the Big Ten this week, watching them play against the 14th ranked Boilermakers, whom they beat 67-64, playing in the beautiful Bryce Jordan Center, which holds something like 15,000 people, and I am pretty sure there were about 13,000 open seats. Maybe you are not aware that the Nittany Lions are 13-3, 3rd in the Big Ten, and have scored the most points so far in the conference. They also have three players ranked in the top ten in scoring, including the leading scorer, sophomore sensation Taylor Battle at 18.9 points a game. I’m not sure why this game was so poorly attended. Maybe the students were not back from Christmas break, or maybe a snow storm hit; I don’t know, but if not let’s get over the Rose Bowl and move forward.

They are not at home today but do again face a tough test on the road against top 25 ranked Minnesota. They will be back home Wednesday the 14th against Michigan State, another tough opponent; a perfect opportunity to fill those empty seats and show some love for the basketball team.
