Penn State Men’s Basketball preaches ‘Mamba Mentality’

Nittany Nation

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (WTAJ) – Penn State Men’s Basketball coach Pat Chambers put it bluntly Monday afternoon.

“This team has a chance to do something special,” Chamber said.

The Nittany Lions are coming off a 14-18 season, and 7-13 in conference play. Chambers’ squad returns nearly every player from that team, including All-Big Ten forward Lamar Stevens. The Philadelphia native returns as the conference’s leader in scoring and rebounding from a year ago.

Monday also gave a look into the mindset of this year’s team. Everyone has heard in the past and present about ‘The Climb,’ now it’s about ‘Mamba Mentality’ after NBA legend Kobe Bryant.

Rosie Langello has more including a look at shoes on a jam packed day at the Bryce-Jordan Center.
