Penn State Nittany Lions Basketball TicketsThe Penn State Nittany Lions have not yet become national champions in basketball, but they have made their fair share of NCAA Tournament appearances. They entered March Madness for the ninth time in 2011, which remains their last trip to the Big Dance. The team won the Conference Tournament Championship in 1991 for the Atlantic 10, and they made it to the Final Four in 1954. Their notable former players include Jesse Arnelle, Talor Battle and Joe Crispin. John Rusinko, Herman Sledzik and Jesse Arnelle are among the players who were drafted out of the organization by NBA teams. Penn State has a robust and passionate student cheering section whose predecessors were once notorious for passing around "dirt sheets" with negative information intended to unsettle opposing players. Today's student group, known as the Legion of Blue, often makes a positive impact by busing loads of enthusiastic fans to away games. ESPN and the Big Ten Network have featured the cheering section during live game broadcasts. The Nittany Lions' rivals include Michigan State and Alabama.
