UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State men's basketball coach Patrick Chambers addressed his team Monday afternoon just before the Nittany Lions began their first practice of the 2017-18 preseason.

While teams across the nation are hitting the court for the first of the allotted 30 practices, Penn State was one of several teams granted 10 team practices as part of preparation for foreign trip tours this past summer.

"From the moment last season ended, our biggest focus has been on creating good habits and we have worked on improving as a team and as individuals," said Chambers, entering his seventh season at Penn State. "We got better today."

The Nittany Lions open the 2017-18 season with Campbell on Friday, Nov. 10 and will play their first four games at the Bryce Jordan Center before participating in the Legends Classic Monday-Tuesday, Nov. 20-21 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
