Army vs. Penn State: Nittany Lions looking to bounce back against Black Knights

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Penn State and Army will meet up on Saturday in State College, and the Nittany Lions will try to bounce back from a loss to La Salle on Wednesday.

The Penn St. Nittany Lions will take on the Army Black Knights on Saturday afternoon at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, Penn., and have a good chance to rebound from their tough loss to La Salle on Wednesday night.

The Nittany Lions have had a rough time since losing point guard Tim Frazier for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. The team is 2-2 in the four games without him, but the offense has struggled to find a rhythm without Frazier's steadying hand. The team may not be exceptionally talented, but they put in a huge amount of effort defensively and on the boards.

The Black Knights are no pushover, though. They're 4-3 to start the year, and are scoring over 75 points per game and grabbing over 40 rebounds per game.

Tipoff in State College is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET, and the game can be seen nationally on Big Ten Network.
