Penn State’s Lamar Stevens decides to stay in school

Paul Schofield

Penn State men’s basketball coach Pat Chambers received some good news this week when star forward Lamar Stevens decided to return for his senior season.

Stevens is an All-Big Team Conference first-team forward. He’s the conference’s top returning scorer and rebounder. The 6-foot-8 senior averaged 19.9 points and 7.7 rebounds.

Stevens said: “I started on this journey with Coach Chambers four years ago and my parents always told me to finish what you start. Words can’t express how excited I am to attack this year with my coach and my brothers right beside me. I’m ready to take Penn State to new heights.”

Stevens has 1,660 career points and became the fastest junior to reach the 1,500-career point milestone.

He earned honorable mention all-conference honors and was voted the National Invitation Tournament Most Outstanding Player following the Nittany Lions’ 2018 championship.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
