MBB to open 2017 in Virgin Islands (pre-season)
The experience of the trip will be great bonus for the team members and should be beneficial for overall team chemistry, but the key takeaway is extra practice time. This gets the Dukes an extra 10 days of practice time in the burg plus even more practice time once they arrive in the islands. Everyone including the freshman can participate in the additional practice.

Go Duuuuukes.

Pre-season games. Teams can do their pre-season activities on the road once every five years.

Ahhh...OK. I thought you meant it was one of those early season tournaments with games that count towards the actual record like the USVI Paradise Jam... http://paradisejam.com/wp-content/upload...ackets.pdf

Getting away for some extra time will definitely be beneficial for the team...especially with so many new faces.

Thanks for the heads up.

This can only be a good thing. More practice time for an inexperienced coach and a team full of new players

Do we know yet who else is in this tourney?

edit: Is it just pre-season practice and scrimmages? A couple of games against Philadephia U and Athletes in Action?

Don't think this is a tournament. Normally teams play some local clubs/colleges, get some practices in, and use it as an opportunity once every few years as allowed by NCAA rules to do some team bonding + get extra practices in before the official first date of practice in late September.

Side note, Dukes MBB have received 2 verbal commits from JUCO's (see Hoops Recruiting thread above) in the last week but still have no official signing info from jmusports.com or JMU MBB twitter...or, from the 2 commits themselves for that matter.
