Which college basketball teams are taking foreign trips?

Published on August 16, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Every four years the NCAA allows college teams to take a preseason trip in a foreign country. These trips usually happen right now in August, just right before school starts. The trips are a good bonding experience for the team’s players to come together. They also gain extra practices with coaches love since there are so many resections and freshman get a taste of college basketball. How much better teams get, because of these trip remains to be seen, but it doesn’t hurt. Some of the teams are playing are good teams such as national teams and some of the other teams are awful.
