Nitt Links Is Ready For Some Hoops

That's right folks, Penn State basketball starts up today at 7:30 against Lehigh, a team that has one of the nations brighter young stars in C.J McCollum. If you're on the fence about attending tonight's you really should go to see him and Taran Buie battle it out. Even if you're not a huge hoops fan, this season ought to tell us where the program is headed, something that I think interests most Penn State fans. A bad season could mean the end of the road for DeChellis, and a season finishing with some reasonable level of success could lead to an extension. Either way, there is a lot going on this year with the universities second highest grossing program, so pay attention.

News: Freshman get in free to this game. All you have to do is show up. The ticket has already been loaded onto your ID card.
