Penn State vs. Lafayette men’s basketball: TV and stream info

Penn State is back home in the Bryce Jordan Center for some Thanksgiving weekend men’s basketball on Friday evening. The Nittany Lions have been strong performers at home early on this season and are coming off a third-place finish in the Shriners Children’s Charleston Classic as they welcome the Lafayette Leopards to State College. Penn State will be a heavy favorite in the Matchup as the Nittany Lions look to improve to 6-1 this season.

Lafayette has been having the mirror opposite of Penn State’s success this season. The visiting team carries a 1-5 record as they visit Happy Valley and they are coming off a 74-68 overtime loss at home to the Penn Quakers. Lafayette has also lost games to Saint John’s, St. Joseph’s, and UMBC. Their Lone win has come against Central Connecticut State. Leo Boyle and Kyle Jennings are setting the scoring pace for the Leopards, but they will be hard-pressed to keep things rolling enough to give Penn State much of a serious threat on Friday evening.

Here is how to catch the non-conference game live.
