Nittany Lions Add Pair of Walk-Ons

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; Oct. 29, 2010 - Penn State men's basketball coach Ed DeChellis announced the addition of a pair of walk-ons to the Nittany Lion roster on Friday as 6-3 guard Nick Colella (New Castle, Pa.) and 6-9 forward Alan Wisniewski (Sterling Heights, Mich.) joined the team bringing Penn State's roster to 15 players, 14 healthy with the loss of sophomore Sasa Borovnjak to a torn ACL in the preseason.

Congrats to Colella and Wiz Jr!
