Centre Daily Times | 01/17/2004 | Frank Giardinia | Former Nittany Lion Earl looking for work, 17 Jan 2004 [cached]
Former Penn State basketball point guard Dan Earl was a surprise visitor to Happy Valley in early January.Earl had been playing professional basketball in Poland, but left his team over the holidays.
"It was not a good situation from a basketball standpoint and not a very organized team," Earl said."I started getting a bad feeling when they started messing around with my situation financially, so I decided to leave the team."
Despite a temporary setback in Poland, Earl is not ready to give up on basketball.
"I had a great time last year playing with (former Penn State teammate) Pete Lisicky in Germany," Earl said."I am going to go back there and work out with them and see if any spots might open up on their team.I would like to keep playing as long as I can."
Earl's career at Penn State will always be remembered fondly by Nittany Lion fans.In some ways he was one of the most important recruits in Penn State history.Recruited by Bruce Parkhill from Medford Lakes, N.J., Earl ranks 12th in school history in scoring, second in assists and his single-season assist total of 181 in 1995 also is a school record.
"I wanted to come to Penn State to play in the Big Ten," recalls Earl."At the time, every school in the league had big time players: Michigan had the Fab Five, Michigan State had Shawn Respert, Minnesota had Voshon Leonard and Purdue had Glenn Robinson.I loved playing in the league.I know that it has been tough to recruit eastern players lately, but I think coach (Ed) DeChellis will change a lot of that."
Don't be surprised to see Earl in a coaching box when he finishes playing overseas. - Dan Earl joins DeChellis' staff, 21 June 2005 [cached]
