Penn State boasts some of the finest and most modern basketball facilities in the nation. From a recently completed locker room and team lounge to top-of-the-line training and weight room facilities, film study area and practice gym, Penn State is committed to providing the best facilities and they are all housed in the Bryce Jordan Center just steps from one another and the coaches' offices.
"The facilities at Penn State are probably the best you'll find in thee country," junior guard Danny Morrissey said. "The lounge and locker room are better than I've heard of from friends that play at other schools. There's nothing like it."
Penn State players enjoy beautifully crafted wood lockers in a plush carpeted locker room that connects to adjacent showers and a team lounge with all the comforts of home. Large leather couches adorn the recently completed lounge that features a pair of high definition flat panel televisions, video games, sound system, and a computer in a space large enough for the entire team to relax and be comfortable.
These are located just across the hall from one of the finest practice gyms in the nation featuring a full court replicating the Jordan Center's main arena floor and six retractable baskets on the sides.
Just steps down the hall are located Penn State's modern training room and basketball only weight room. Players' health and well-being is monitored daily by Head Basketball Trainer Jonathan Salazer in the fully equipped training facility, while Basketball Strength and Conditioning Coach Brad Pantall oversees the individualized and sport-specific physical development of players in the modern weight facility.
Penn State players also study film, eat training table meals and can visit coaches' offices all within the modern walls of the 15,261-seat Bryce Jordan Center where they play their home games before a raucous student-section that numbers in the thousands and an arena full of enthusiastic fans.
