Penn State's 2018-19 basketball schedule is complete. After unveiling an 11 game non-conference slate in July, the Nittany Lions now know their full Big Ten Conference schedule, including a pair of early season league games. A few highlights:

  • For the first time in league history, every team will play 20 games. Each school will face seven teams twice in home-and-home series, and six more teams just once (three at home, three on the road).
  • Penn State will travel to College Park, MD on Saturday, Dec. 1 to face Maryland, and host the Indiana Hoosiers three days late on Tuesday, Dec. 4. This is the second straight year of these early season Big Ten tilts.
  • The remainder of the league schedule begins on Thursday, Jan. 3 when the Lions travel to Ann Arbor and face the defending national runners-up at the Crisler Center. Wisconsin travels to Happy Valley on Sunday, Jan. 5 for the "regular" home opener.
  • The Nittany Lions will host three weekend games at the BJC, with the remaining seven landing on weeknights. No Friday night games for Penn State either.
  • The Big Ten Tournament returns to Chicago and the United Center this year, and will be played March 13-17.
