Memories of a classic contest between Villanova and North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament championship remain fresh, and yet, the 2016-17 basketball season will be here sooner than we know it.
In anticipation of the upcoming season, Penn State released it’s non-conference schedule Wednesday. Several of these games have been known for a while, but a few of them are a pleasant surprise.
