Penn State at a Glance
By The Associated Press=
Last season: 18-16.
Nickname: Nittany Lions.
Coach: Patrick Chambers.
Conference: Big Ten.
Key Returnees: Shep Garner (9.2 points) and Brandon Taylor (9.1) are the top returning scorers and Taylor grabbed 5.3 rebounds per game.
Who Left: D.J. Newbill was the star of this program as it tried to climb in the Big Ten. He averaged 20.7 points and took almost every big shot last season.
The Skinny: Replacing Newbill's points is possible but to have a successful season the Nittany Lions must replace his leadership and ability to take a clutch shot late in the game.
