Basketball: They’ll be EuroBears this summer

Cal has announced plans for a summer foreign tour, playing  five games during a 10-day trek through Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

The Bears will arrive in Stockholm, Sweden, on Aug. 13 and their schedule includes games against the Norwegian and Danish national teams.

College teams are permitted to take one foreign tour every four years, and coach Mike Montgomery said this year was ideal because the Bears have so many returning young players who could benefit from additional practice and games. Incoming players also are allowed to make the trip, which wasn’t always the case in the past.

Here is the full story from Cal’s website.

    To be clear, Rossi, Cobbs, and the two incoming freshmen will be on the trip practicing and playing with the rest of the returning team? Any lingering injuries? Hope Crabbe and Soloman make the USA team. Two trips to europe would be great experience and great fun for them.
    The team trip looks like it will be great. Wish I were in college playing hoops and going on that trip. Hope our players appreciate and take advantage of this great opportunity.

    Hope we can get the games online or on satellite.

    It will be a real kick to see these guys in action against such great competition.
    GO BEARS.
