UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Penn State men’s basketball team will host Miami (FL) in the 2021 Big Ten/ACC Men’s Basketball Challenge inside the Bryce Jordan Center  on Wednesday, Dec. 1, as matchups for the 23rd-annual challenge were announced Monday afternoon.

Trailing 48-28 with 14:07 left, Penn State outscored the Hurricanes 34-8 the rest of the way to capture the first-round victory that eventually propelled PSU into the NIT Semifinals.
