The OU men's basketball team is off to Europe to play five exhibition games during its Aug. 6-16 foreign tour that collegiate hoops teams are permitted to take once every four years.
The Sooners will play five contests in Belgium and France, the majority of them against teams from Europe's top two professional divisions. OU's first three games (Aug. 8-10) will take place in Belgium, and its final two will be played in France (Aug. 14-15).
Lon Kruger's team will also be afforded several educational sightseeing opportunities during the trip, including a tour of Normandy (site of the World War II D-Day invasions of 1944) and a cruise on the Seine River.
