As Andrew Callahan of Lions247 reported before the game, Pat Chambers said that Nazeer Bostick was earning double-digit minutes of game time with his work on the practice court.
Clearly that work is paying off.
Bostick, aptly nicknamed "Horse" during his days at Roman Catholic, played 12 minutes against No. 21 Maryland in Penn State's 70-64 upset win, his most in a game this season. He rewarded the faith of his head coach with an offensive rebound, put-back and block as part of a massive six-point swing in favor of the Nittany Lions. Pat Chambers rewarded Bostick for his efforts by leaving him on the floor when former Roman Catholic teammates Tony Carr and Lamar Stevens reentered.
Overall on the night, Bostick finished with 4 points (2-2 shooting), with 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block and 1 turnover. The freshman's performance may just make things a little more difficult for Chambers when he decides who to grab off the bench in a big spot between Bostick and Terrence Samuel, who sat out Tuesday's upset due to illness.
