Meet the Nittany Lions

From there, Shrewsbury became head coach at IU South Bend after serving as Marshall’s Operations Director. After staying in South Bend for several seasons, he landed on Butler’s staff under Brad Stevens. After Stevens left for the NBA, Shrewsbury joined the NBA’s Stevens with the Celtics after working under Matte Painter for several years. Shrewsberry returned to college in 2019, worked for two seasons under Painter, and then got a job at Pennsylvania State University last spring.
Upon arriving at Pennsylvania State University, Shrewsbury had to be scrambled to put together a roster. During the off-season, several major players were transferred, including Jamari Wheeler (Ohio), Milleon Jones (Florida), and Izaiah Brockington (Iowa).

What will happen
Pomeroy’s prediction is 2 in Indiana and the number of sagarins is 2.5 like Hoosiers.
Victory on the road in the Big Ten is as difficult as in any other league, and Indiana is 0-2 in this season’s true road game. The match on Sunday is one of four matches in which Kempomeroi plans to win the Big Ten match in Indiana.
The key to Hoosiers is to take care of the ball and play Trace Jackson Davis as much as possible. Haller presents a challenge in the post, but Pennsylvania State University is very borderline-oriented against the attack and does not generate many second chance points. The Nittany Lions do not reach the line very often and often flip the ball over.
Indiana has played very well on the street, losing to Syracuse and Wisconsin, but the Hoosiers haven’t played together yet near full performance 40 minutes from home.
“I had to play all the time while I was out,” Mike Woodson said on Friday. “I don’t think I’ll win at 38. It’s a 40-minute match. I had to put together a 40-minute ball game from start to finish.”
