Weekend basketball intel report
So before we get caught up in the weekend and are thinking about football there is some basketball news worth mentioning:
- Bill Edwards hurts his MCL. Expected to be out 4-6 weeks
At first glance that’s scary to hear but apparently the injury looked a lot worse at practice. Edwards should be out for a good portion of the OOC slate so he’ll have to keep his head in the game from the bench to try and make up for not being able to play. Once healthy Edwards is expected to be part of the what looks like 8 man rotation for games. So heres to a speedy recovery.
- Talor Battle was named to the preseason All-Big Ten team for the second straight year.
At this point it is really more of a formality but when was the last time a Penn State basketball player was part of any “formality” that was positive? I’ll take it. Talor was also named to the preseason Naismith Award watch list.
In less program related news we’ve got ourselves a new basketball blog. Check it out. I’ll have more about the season up sometime next week or this weekend, but til then enjoy yourself some media day.
