VCU taking havoc on European tour

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - If you think Portland was a long trip, wait until you hear where VCU is headed this summer.

The Rams will embark on a European tour in August - ten days playing professional clubs across the continent.  In addition to the extra games, the team also gets extra practice time, when other teams will not be able to practice.

More details about the trip are expected to be released in the upcoming weeks.

Both the University of Richmond and Virginia basketball teams are going on similar trips this summer.

Every four years Division One basketball programs have the opportunity to play overseas.
