Tech Basketball Cancels Trip to Canada

Sept. 23, 2009

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s men’s basketball team has cancelled its trip to Canada, which was to take place the weekend of Oct. 2-5, due to an NCAA regulation that prohibits such a trip within 30 days of the official start of pre-season practice.

The Yellow Jackets were to depart Oct. 2 for Windsor, Ontario, play two games against the University of Windsor and one against the University of Western Ontario, then return Oct. 6. The trip falls within Tech’s fall break from classes.

NCAA regulations allow teams to take an international trip once every four years, but the trip must be occur before the 30-day period leading up to the official start of pre-season practice, which this year is Oct. 16. Tech asked for and received a waiver from the NCAA, but ultimately decided against taking the fall break trip.
