Thanks to everyone that came out last night for the Q & A with Paul Hewitt and the rest of the coaching staff. We had a great turnout and interaction among the group. We will also be looking to have another event similar in the summer, possibly involving an open practice or something like that.
One bit of news that came out of it was that the team is looking to plan a trip to Spain this summer as it has been four years since their last international team trip. By NCAA rules they can do one of these trips every four years. Last time they went to Italy prior to the start of the 2010-11 season and it certainly seemed as though it brought that group together. With all the new faces next season a trip like this could an be excellent team bonding experience.
The team is still putting together the details and preparation but Spain is a great choice considering the strong basketball presence there and the fact that assistant coach Chris Kreider is a fluent Spanish speaker.
