Yes, the loss to Ole Miss definitely stung, but this is no time for Penn State (6-3) to dwell on it as they take on Lafayette (3-5) at the BJC. Tipoff is at 7:00 PM ET and you can either fork over some money out of your pocket to watch on BTN.com, or listen to Steve Jones and Dick Jerardi call the shots on the Penn State Radio Network.
As for tonight's opponent? Well, let's put it this way: They rank 245th (out of 345 teams) on KenPom, not to mention, KenPom ranks their AdjD (Adjusted Defense) category in 337th. Did we also neglect to mention they're 302nd in rebounding? Forget about the fact that Lafayette features several guys who have the green light to shoot it from 3-point land(most notably Jim Mower's 22-of-53 and Nick Petkovich's 17-of-35 performances on the season), this is a team PSU shouldn't have too much trouble taking down. Of course, that means the opposite is likely to happen now and this game could come down to Tim Frazier having to pull off some Talor Battle-esque heroics.
As always, the same standard thread rules apply. I really hope I don't have to repeat them by this point.
