Lamar Stevens’ college sports career ends prematurely

March 12, 2020

Penn State basketball player Lamar Stevens’ college sports career ended prematurely when the Big Ten men’s basketball tournament was abruptly cancelled the same day Penn State was scheduled to play. The cancellation came a week before the Nittany Lions would have made their long-awaited return to the NCAA tournment. And also ended Stevens’ his opportunity to become the program’s all-time leading scorer. Stevens, a first team all-Big Ten forward, fell just 7 points short of passing Talor Battle’s (BS H&HD 2011) 2213 point Penn State record Stevens would later sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA.
