The Penn State men's basketball team held its Media Day at the Jordan Center Tuesday. As usual, FightOnState.com was there for the event, and this time we had the video camera rolling. Over the next week or so, we will post a series of interviews, starting with standout forward Geary Claxton.
A third-team All-Big Ten pick as a sophomore, many project Geary Claxton among the top handful of players in the conference this season. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder led the Nittany Lions in scoring (15.2 ppg) and rebounding (7.5 rpg) a year ago.
Where did Claxton feel he had to improve in the off-season? How excited is he now that many folks are predicting a top-five finish in the league for PSU? Was there anything to the transfer rumors that seemed to circulate around him the last two off-seasons? And what is his take on true freshman forwards Andrew Jones and D.J. Jackson?
Get the answers to these questions and more in our one-on-one interview with Claxton.
