With each passing day, things look better and better for Penn State Basketball. Head coach Micah Shrewsberry was able to bring back a lot of talent from last year's team, as well as bring on multiple important transfers. Recruiting is going very well, including a commitment from the highest-rated big man in school history in Kebba Njie, as well as a chance at adding Otega Oweh, who would be the second-highest ranked recruit at any position in school history.
Now, to continue off an offseason of positive vibes out of State College, Shrewsberry's team will now get to work out and recover in style with the now-complete remodels of the weight room and training room as part of Phase 2 of the facility renovations plan,

Phase 2 of our facility renovations is complete with a state-of-the-art weight room & training room. Huge thank you to the donors of the Basketball Facility Enhancement Fund for their generosity & support in making this possible! #WeAre pic.twitter.com/YsvYSReOyl
It may be a relatively small-scale upgrade, but these two rooms (along with the recently renovated locker room and film room) represent the places where the members of the team spend most of their time. Even more so than the Bryce Jordan Center court itself, these are the types of things that make waves for recruits when they are choosing between various programs.
Micah Shrewsberry already appears to have been a home-run hire for the Nittany Lions, and it's good to see the school supporting him with these upgrades.
Penn State Basketball is set to open up the season against Youngstown State on Wednesday, November 10 in Happy Valley.
