UAlbany plans trip to China

Recommended Posts

On the university's website today:




The blurb discusses concrete plans for the men's basketball team to travel to China in 13 months. The article has a picture of McElroy holding up a Nanjing T-shirt.


Just more good publicity for the athletic program and another great opportunity for the team to gain experience.


The school's drive to improve our basketball takes another step forward.


The info about the school's trip is, of course, not new information, but it keeps the prospect of the trip alive in the media.

Quote from McElroy: "It's a study abroad program with a twist, and an important twist -- we will be the first Division 1 men's basketball team in NCAA history and the history of this country to play in China," McElroy writes.


"We've decided on a time period of mid-July to mid-August 2007. Per NCAA regulations, we are allowed to play five games, and we're working toward making those happen in three of the biggest sports markets in the country -- Beijing, Shanghai and Jiangsu Province."
