I know this news has already been reported here, but just to refresh your memories it was reported on the Athletics website again today.


"Albany, N.Y. - University at Albany's Brent Wilson leads a group of four Great Danes who are traveling in a basketball tour of Holland and Belgium, with six exhibition games schedules from Aug. 24-30. Jason Siggers, Michael Knight and Carl Ross are also members of the NCAA All-Star Team.

"UAlbany associate head coach Eric Eaton is coaching the squad. The NCAA All-Stars will meet the Dutch National Police and Sportcentrum Vrije Universiteit Lions in Amsterdam, Holland to begin the trip. The Belgium schedule includes Gent Dragons, Leuven, Brussels and Oostende.

"Wilson, a 6-foot-8 forward, was named to the All-America East Conference third team last year after averaging 10.4 points and 4.3 rebounds. Siggers, a 6-foot-4 swingman, scored at a 5.0 clip off the bench and made 21-of-51 three-point field goals. Knight and Ross, who each transferred into the program last spring, are expected to make contributions this season in the UAlbany backcourt."


It's great that two new members of the team will be gaining valuable experience and the opportunity to play in real competition before the actual season begins. Getting the new guys into the lineup should be much smoother than usual because of this trip.
