It seems as though the dreaded “kissing disease” has stuck inside the Penn State basketball locker room.
Head coach Patrick Chambers has revealed that freshman guard Josh Reaves will be out for multiple games with mononucleosis. Reaves has averaged 6.4 points per game as well as 3.9 rebounds while playing in 17 of his team’s 18 games so far this season.
Reaves has started 14 of those games, and has played an averaged 24.5 minutes per game. With him out, the Nittany Lions will likely look to Devin Foster to pick up some of the slack, and get more playing time.
As of writing, Penn State is 10-8 overall and 1-4 in Big Ten play. The team has been plagued by inconsistency all season long, and losing Reaves won’t help solve that problem.
