Men’s basketball coach Patrick Chambers dropped by the pre-THON ceremonies to offer some words of encouragement and drop off his large pledge from Thursday night’s basketball game.
“You’re everything that’s right about Penn State,” Chambers said. “We appreciate you for your sacrifice, your time and for how proud you make us.”
Chambers also dropped off his $14,200 check as a result of Thursday night’s basketball game student attendance.
“Best of luck, stay safe and remember: 'We are Penn State,' ” Chambers added, before he took off.
