Penn State men's hoops to host Princeton in Rec Hall

Penn State basketball is back at Rec Hall–for one game, at least. Wednesday, Penn State announced it will host Princeton on Saturday, Dec. 14 in its old gym.

“This is a very exciting day for our program, alumni and fans of Penn State basketball,” Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said in a release. “I watched Penn State basketball in Rec Hall when I was younger, and it was electric.”

The game will mark the program’s first at Rec Hall since the Nittany Lions steamrolled Wisconsin, 79-50, on Jan. 7, 1996. Four days later, Penn State moved into its new home, Bryce Jordan Center.

I don’t see the point of playing a game there.

Could it be that Bryce Jordan is just too big, most of the time? PSU needs just half as many seats as Bryce Jordan has? OK. Grow from there.

Relax, it’s the weekend before final exams. Students will be studying.
