Maryland basketball ready for exhibition play in the Bahamas

The Maryland basketball team arrived in the Bahamas yesterday afternoon.  The Terps will play 3 games on their 4 day trip and hope to mix work and play on the brief excursion. 

Maryland will play three exhibition games over four days in the Bahamas, facing one local professional team and two local all-star squads. Or maybe it was the other way around. Coach Mark Turgeon wasn’t positive. “To be honest with you,” he said last week in a telephone interview, “I’m really just focused on us.”

Turgeon knows from experience that finding a balance between work and play is crucial on such trips, which are permitted once every four years by the NCAA.

The summer after Turgeon led Wichita State to its first-ever Sweet 16 in 2006, Turgeon took the Shockers on a foreign tour to Canada. Turgeon’s group was spent from a 26-win season and limited by injuries and the absence of any redshirt players, who then were barred by the NCAA from participating in such trips. “I probably overdid it a little bit,” Turgeon said. “Just approaching this one completely different.”

Here is more from the Washington Post.
