FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota State University men’s basketball team is taking a trip to the Bahamas.

The Bison will play three exhibition games in the island country from Aug. 12-14. Head coach Dave Richman says the trip will help the team “solidify a couple of important positions in our rotation.”

NCAA basketball teams are permitted to go on a foreign tour every four years. They’re also allowed 10 extra practices to help prepare. The Bison started practice on Monday.

NDSU last season made its third NCAA Tournament appearance in school history.
