Temple coach Aaron McKie  met with the media following yesterday’s practice to discuss the program’s upcoming trip to the Bahamas.

The team departs on Friday, Aug. 2 and will play three games in five days at Kendall Isaacs Gym at the Queen Elizabeth Sports Complex in Nassau.  It will mark the first-ever trip to the Bahamas for the Owls, and the first foreign trip by the program since 2013.

The Owls open with Commonwealth Bank Giants, a Bahamian Select Team, on Aug. 3 and then play two different Nigerian National teams on Aug. 5 and Aug. 6.
