Penn State vs Indiana Pregame Podcast
Host: Matt Trabold
Analysts: Sean Flanery, Tyler Feldman
The Nittany Lions lost 74-51 at home in their first matchup with Indiana this season and the two clash again Wednesday night at Assembly Hall. Penn State is now 0-6 in conference play after dropping a heartbreaker at home Saturday vs. Nebraska and play the second highest-scoring team in the nation in the Hoosiers.
Head coach Patrick Chambers has expanded his rotation recently and the Nittany Lions will be looking for other key contributors besides D.J. Newbill and Jermaine Marshall Wednesday night. Indiana is one of the deepest teams in the country with five Hoosiers averaging double figures in points, so there are plenty of weapons at Tom Crean's disposal to watch in this matchup. Sean Flanery, Tyler Feldman and Matt Trabold discuss these topics and more on this edition of the ComRadio Basketball Pregame Show Podcast.
