UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Nittany Lion basketball team (6-4) will take
a three-game home winning streak into Sunday's clash with New Hampshire (11
a.m. on BTN).
With final exams this week on the University Park campus, the Nittany Lions have more practice days than a typical week during the upcoming Big Ten season. As a result, head coach Patrick Chambers and the Lions have been able to spend more time focusing on fundamentals and continuing to grow on the defensive end of the floor.
Playing team defense is the theme as Penn State preps for its final two non-conference games of the season. The Lions know that getting stops is paramount to the team's success in the Big Ten. GoPSUsports.com caught up with several Nittany Lions for an update on finals week practices and some insight on the importance of continued growth on defense.
