UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -

The Penn State men's basketball team departs for the Bahamas today where it will meet three locally based teams in competition during its foreign tour trip August 4-11. All games will be played in Sir Kendal Isaac's National Gymnasium, Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre in Nassau.

NCAA basketball teams are permitted to take an international tour to play exhibition games once every four years with the Lions' last trip, to Belgium, France and England, taking place in 2013. During this 2017 tour, the games will be governed by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and follow those contest rules.

On Sunday, Aug. 6 at 2 p.m. ET, Penn State will play the New Providence Basketball Association (NPBA) All-Stars. Back-to-back games will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 8 at 6 p.m. ET against the Providence Storm and following evening, Wednesday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. when the Bahamas All-Stars host the Nittany Lions.

In addition to playing in the exhibition games and participating in shootaround sessions, several team members are scheduled to conduct a clinic for children in Governor's Harbour, the capital of Eleuthera, on Saturday. Sightseeing and touring opportunities will also be available at and around the resort.
