Men's and Women's Basketball teams to play first home game at Stabler Nov. 30
Penn State Lehigh Valley's men's and women's basketball teams will play their first home game on Nov. 30 at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem. The teams will take on Penn State York with the women's game beginning at 6 p.m. and the men's game beginning at 8 p.m. The games are free and open to the public.
This is a season of firsts for the Penn State Lehigh Valley athletic department, which competes as part of the Penn State University Athlethic Conference (PSUAC). It will be the debut of the new women's team as well as the first conference games played at Stabler Arena under a new partnership with Lehigh University. Previously, the men's team played at the Southern Lehigh High School gymnasium.
"Having a venue like Stabler Arena as our home court will help take these young teams to a new level and add to the experience not just for our student athletes, but also for fans," said Rich Fatzinger, coordinator of athletics at Penn State Lehigh Valley.
The campus's women's basketball team is coached by Robin Martin, and the men's team is coached by Anthony Ross.
