This August the Carleton Ravens men’s basketball team will again play host to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) teams. The Ravens will prepare for the 2014- 2015 season, playing five games in nine days on their home court. Making the trip north include Big Ten Conference School the Indiana Hoosiers as well as 2014 March Madness participants the Memphis Tigers.
Memphis Coach Josh Pastner had this to say about their upcoming tour, “The most important thing about putting this trip together was finding great competition, and this tour has it. The teams we’ll see on the tour took Louisville, Syracuse and Wisconsin down to the wire last summer, and the Cardinals, Orange and Badgers were three of the best teams in college basketball this past season.”
After bringing home their 10th CIS Championship in 12 years, the Ravens are excited to begin their year against some of the NCAA’s elite basketball programs.
