Penn State Nittany Lions Notes
Qudus Wahab racked up 18 points (7-8 FG, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes during Saturday’s 76-67 loss to Bucknell.
Wahab approached a double-double as the Nittany Lions were defeated by Bucknell on Saturday. The 6-foot-11 senior has been a consistent double-double threat for Penn State, averaging 11 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.4 blocks on 24.9 minutes per game. Wahab will look to get the Nittany Lions, who have lost four-straight games, back on track during Wednesday’s matchup with Maryland.
Maryland Terps Notes
Jahmir Young (ankle) is questionable for Maryland’s game Wednesday against Penn State, according to John Fanta of Fox Sports.
Young suffered his ankle injury during Maryland’s game Friday at Indiana. More should be known about Young’s status when the Big Ten Conference’s injury report is updated before the Terrapins play again. Despite the Terps suffering an embarrassing loss to Indiana, said defeat would have been much worse had Young not scored 20 of their 53 points.
