- All proceeds from Saturday's contest will go to the One America Appeal for Hurricane Relief, a joint appeal launched by all five living former American Presidents to encourage fellow citizens to support recovery efforts from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
- Saturday's exhibition contest with Penn State is Lafayette's first exhibition game since the Leopards were defeated by the Sundance Pennsylvania AAU All-Stars by a 101-64 score on Nov. 13, 2000.
- Lafayette head coach Fran O'Hanlon is set to begin his 23rd season at the helm of the Maroon and White when the Leopards open regular-season play on the road at George Mason on Nov. 10.
- Seniors Matt Klinewski and Eric Stafford will captain this year's team, taking over for Nick Lindner '17, the lone captain of the 2016-17 squad. Lindner was the only key performer lost to graduation this season as the Leopards return four starters and nine letterwinners for 2017-18.
