Penn State vs. Lafayette: Nittany Lions Look To Rebound

Penn State will try to regain momentum after Sunday's loss against Mississippi.

Penn State will look to rebound from Sunday's loss against Mississippi when it hosts Lafayette for a 7:00 p.m. tipoff Wednesday night at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The Nittany Lions dropped a 72-70 heartbreaker against the Rebels and fell to 6-3 on the season last time out, but will face a significantly weaker Leopards team when they take the court tonight. At 3-5 and No. 293 in the RPI according to RealTimeRPI.com, Lafayette is one of the lighter opponents remaining on Penn State's schedule.

Despite their weak resume entering, however, the Leopards do boast a couple of dangerous scorers. Senior guard Jim Mower averages 17.9 points per game while senior forward Ryan Wilen owns a 16.9 average. Combined, the two account for 47% of Lafayette's scoring, so the Lions will likely be very focused on the pair defensively. If Penn State can slow the duo, though, it should be in good position to win this one comfortably.
