Trio Named Penn State Basketball Captains

The Penn State basketball team is less than a month away from its season opener against Hartford on Nov. 12 at the Bryce Jordan Center, and Tuesday, the team announced it has named a trio of upperclassmen, senior Cammeron Woodyard and juniors Tim Frazier and Billy Oliver, captains for the 2011-2012 season.

Woodyard will be the team's only senior this year and is coming off a 2010-2011 season in which he averaged 1.8 points per game and 1.3 rebounds per game playing as a swing guard, often in place of the now-departed David Jackson.

↵

Oliver averaged 2.3 points and 1.4 rebounds per game last season, frequently filling in for forwards Jeff Brooks and Andrew Jones down low. A junior in eligibility, Oliver is entering his fourth season with the team, as he redshirted his first season in 2008-2009.

Frazier is by far the biggest returning contributor to the team. Last season, he served primarily as the starting point guard and averaged 6.3 points, 5.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds opposite Talor Battle in the back court.

These three should have their hands full in leading what will be a very young team, sporting 11 players with either freshman or sophomore eligibility.
