Penn State Basketball: Alan Wisniewski Awarded Scholarship for Senior Season
It''s a case where hard work and effort pays off in the end.
Senior forward Alan Wisniewski who has been placed on a basketball scholarship. The award was announced by Penn State head coach Patrick Chambers on Wednesday. Wisniewski is in his third year with the Nittany Lions after joining the team as a walk-on in 2011-12.
"Alan works tremendously hard and his teammates respect him for the attitude he brings to our locker-room," Chambers said. "He has developed into a leader of our team. We are happy to be able to recognize his dedication with a scholarship for the upcoming season."
Wisniewski has appeared in 18 games during his career, including 12 contests last season. The Michigan native played a season-high 17 minutes at Nebraska on Feb. 9, going 2-3 from the field to score six points and grabbing eight rebounds.
While the scholarship is no guarantee of added playing time, for a program that thrives on attitude and extra effort, Wisniewski's work effort clearly hasn't been overlooked by his coaches.
