(WTNH)–Basketball season is coming early at Yale. The Bulldogs are practicing right now. The team is gearing up for a four game summertime trip to Australia.
Teams are allowed trips like this every few years. It gives them extra practice time, and obviously a chance to bond on the road.
This can come in handy once the season starts.
“You know everyone is going to play in every game. Everyone is going to get a start,” Yale men’s basketball coach James Jones said. “We get a chance to see what some of the guys can do who wouldn’t really get that opportunity.”
Their first game in Australia is August 11th.
