Team preview: Penn State
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Ed DeChellis didn't harbor any illusions when he took over the Penn State program last year. He knew his team was young, not particularly deep, and would have its hands full with a competitive schedule.
The job got tougher in December when his backcourt was hit with its second transfer request. After Sharif Chambliss had packed his bags for Wisconsin, Brandon Cameron -- the Lions' only guard with collegiate experience -- asked to be released from his scholarship before the holiday break and transferred to IUPUI.
