LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas-Little Rock's men's basketball team is headed north of the border this month to compete in exhibition games against two Canadian schools.
The men's team is set to participate in the 2013 Battle of the Border from Aug. 15 to Aug. 17. The exhibition is hosted by the University of Calgary.
Programs are only allowed to take foreign trips once every four years, and this is the first such trip for the Trojans under coach Steve Shields.
The team flies out of Little Rock Wednesday and will play their first game the following day against Calgary. UALR will then take on the University of Alberta on Aug. 16, following another matchup against Calgary on Aug. 17.
