Penn State University men’s basketball coach and PhilaU alumnus Pat Chambers brought his team to play Michigan State at the storied Palestra on the University of Pennsylvania campus Jan. 7, The Washington Post, Detroit News, Philadelphia Inquirer, Mlive, Reading Eagle and other media outlets reported.
John Feinstein reported in The Washington Post: “I’m a Philly kid. I’ve got six Philly kids on my team,” said Chambers, who played at Philadelphia University. “I’ve coached here as an assistant, played here in college, coached here as the road team [against Penn and Drexel]. This is obviously a key recruiting area for us. I knew there was some risk giving up a home game, but I figured it was a risk-reward situation that was worth it.”
Chambers ’94 played starting point guard on the Rams squad that won a PhilaU-record 30 games during Chambers’ junior year.
Penn State scored a 72-63 victory over Michigan State this weekend.
