The Morehead State men’s basketball program has finalized a preseason trip to the Bahamas.

Morehead State is slated to face the Grand Bahamas All-Stars (Aug. 9), Real Deal Shockers (Aug. 10) and Pyramid Food Rockets (Aug. 11). All contests will be played at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium in Nassau. Opposing teams will include former NCAA Division I and II players.

“Our coaches and student-athletes are looking forward to this trip,” Head Coach Sean Woods said. “The Bahamas will be a great way to wrap up the summer and head into the fall semester. We will treat this like a business trip, but there will also be some time to relax and have fun.”

Alabama State, Chattanooga, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisiana Tech, North Carolina, Northern Arizona, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Portland State and Samford will join MSU in the Bahamas for exhibition games, but NCAA rules do not allow U.S. teams to play each other at this time.

Morehead State is expected to begin its summer practice schedule on July 28. Per NCAA rules, Division I programs are allowed a maximum of 10 workouts prior to leaving for foreign trips. The Eagles have not been abroad since the summer of 2007 when they visited Canada.

“This trip should really help our team chemistry,” Woods said. “I’m also glad that we get 10 practices before leaving. Most of our young men have been away from Morehead during the first summer session, so the workouts will be a good opportunity to see where we’re at as a program.”

“The expectations are pretty high heading into the 2014-15 season,” Woods added. “We have a really good group of returning players and add several high-level transfers who will help us. We will take one day at a time, but our goal is to win an Ohio Valley Conference championship.”
