Penn State Basketball's game against Ohio State, originally set for Wednesday, will be postponed, according to Jon Rothstein and others via Twitter. It's the second consecutive Penn State game to be postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.

It seems clear that the issue is on Penn State's side, given that the team's previous game was canceled and their previous opponent (Wisconsin) returned to practice the following day.

Now, Jim Ferry's team will have to wait until Saturday (January 9) to resume play at home against Michigan, assuming they are cleared to do so. As a result, Penn State will be playing in just their third game in the last seventeen days when they take the floor against the Wolverines.

The Nittany Lions currently hold a 3-4 record (0-3 in Big Ten play) with their most recent loss coming at the hands of Indiana on the road, in overtime.

There is currently no word on potential rescheduled dates for either the Wisconsin or Ohio State games at this time. Roar Lions Roar will continue to keep you updated on the situation as news becomes available.
