Early surprise VCU set to test Penn State

Jamari Wheeler is the emotional leader for Penn State, but the All-Big Ten defense first team selection and conference steals leader has averaged just three points per game during his first three seasons in Happy Valley.

The senior posted career highs with 18 points and four 3-pointers in Saturday's opener against VMI, an 86-65 victory, and the 6-foot-1 guard will look to build on his best career performance when the Nittany Lions host VCU on Wednesday in University Park, Pa.

"Jamari Wheeler deserved to have a career day today. He has put in so much work. And (his performance) was no fluke, he's been shooting like that every day at practice," Penn State interim coach Jim Ferry said. "He's been one of our best shooters during preseason, and we're going to give him the opportunity to shoot."
