Penn State HC Micah Shrewsberry Says G Seth Lundy ‘Working Back in’

Penn State basketball player Seth Lundy scored his 1,000th point in Wednesday’s win over Indiana

Penn State guard Seth Lundy, who hurt his ankle in the team’s win over Canisius Dec. 18, is getting better, but coach Micah Shrewsberry didn’t establish a return date for the senior in his Zoom press conference Tuesday afternoon.

Lundy didn’t practice between the Canisius game and Thursday’s win over Quinnipiac, and didn’t play against Quinnipiac.

Now, Lundy has returned to practice, Shrewsberry said, which is good news for Penn State.

“We got together last night and did stuff, and Seth was back,” Shrewsberry said. “In practice, doing things… He’s a little bit hobbled. A few days after injuring your ankle.”

Lundy is one of Penn State’s best players.

Lundy is second on Penn State in scoring behind star Jalen Pickett, averaging 13.7 points per game, which pleases Shrewsberry.

He’s also second to Pickett in rebounding, averaging 6.7 boards, and plays lockdown defense. Lundy is one of two players— Myles Dread being the other— that played on Penn State’s 2019-20 team, which would have made the NCAA Tournament if not for the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s team has realistic tournament aspirations. The squad is 9-3, with the season’s highlight being a 74-59 win over then-No. 17 Illinois on the road Dec. 12. For Penn State to get to the “Big Dance” for the first time since 2011, it’s likely that Lundy will need to play a big role. Penn State won’t need Lundy to beat 1-11 Delaware State Thursday afternoon. But Lundy’s presence would be greatly appreciate for Penn State’s New Year’s Day matchup against 8-4 Iowa at the Bryce Jordan Center. After Iowa, Penn State has a game at Michigan Jan. 4, followed by three straight games against top 20 teams (vs. No. 1 Purdue, vs. No. 16 Indiana and at No. 15 Wisconsin).

Shrewsberry said Lundy isn’t at full-strength yet, but he’s getting there.

“He may not be 100 percent,” Shrewsberry said, “but he’s working back in.”
