UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Nittany Lion basketball team (14-15, 5-11) begins its final week of regular season competition on Thursday at 7 p.m. (ESPNU) inside Welsh-Ryan Arena when it meets Northwestern (12-17, 5-11) for the only time in 2014.
With two games to play before the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis, the Nittany Lions are set to embark on a five-day road trip. First up is a clash against Northwestern in Evanston. From there, the Lions till fly to Minneapolis in preparation for Sunday's 5:15 p.m. tip at Williams Arena against Minnesota.
"I'm focused on us and becoming the best team we can be by the end of the year," head coach Patrick Chambers said. "But, they (Northwestern) have slowed it down, juicing the clock a little bit and taking the best shot available. Then, they play very good defense because they switch one through four."
Take a look through some things to watch for in Penn State's lone regular season matchup against the Northwestern Wildcats.
