What to Know

The Penn State Nittany Lions will square off against the Massachusetts Minutemen at 7 p.m. ET Monday at William D. Mullins Center. Penn State won't have the home-court advantage, but they do enjoy a 4-point advantage in the spread.

The Nittany Lions didn't have too much trouble with the Youngstown State Penguins at home last Wednesday as they won 75-59. John Harrar and Seth Lundy were among the main playmakers for Penn State as the former dropped a double-double on 16 points and 14 boards and the latter had 23 points along with six rebounds.

Meanwhile, things couldn't have gone much worse for UMass as they lost 91-71 to the Yale Bulldogs this past Friday. It was supposed to be a close game, and UMass was supposed to come out on top, but neither of those things ended up happening.

Penn State's win lifted them to 1-0 while Massachusetts' loss dropped them down to 1-1. We'll see if Penn State can repeat their recent success or if the Minutemen bounce back and reverse their fortune.
