    I agree...UNI will have a relatively young team this next year. This is allowing them additional practice and playing time.

    I wish ISU would schedule one of these trips next summer.

    Drake is heading to the Bahamas or someplace soon for a trip also.

    Was this tourney coached by Jacobsen? If so, does that not seem like unfair practice/play time they get that other schools can't have yet?

    Is the US turning into an athletic has-been? Other countries seem to really be improving.

    This trip is UNI vs. other countrys' National teams. We usually send a group of great college players from many teams, but couldn't do it this year (it was in the paper recently...). That is the "loop hole". UNI isn't UNI, they are actually "USA's Team" which just so happens to be the entire UNI basketball team.

    Which also happens to have "Team USA coach" as Ben Jacobsen?

    Also, as much as I love UNI (2nd fav. bball team besides ISU), why them out of every other team in the country?

    Re: UNI smoked 97-63 in Thailand....

    I sat next to a couple of Lithuanians on a plane several years back. I've also been to Estonia. I think people from the Baltics usually are perceived as having a cold personality and rather unwelcoming but once you warm up to them they'll gladly talk your ear off. The Lithuanians LOVE their basketball and hockey. NBA players return home like old war heroes. This isn't a knock against UNI, but I suspect they are probably just overmatched.

    Yes.

    Also, UNI got to be Team USA because they were the first to volunteer. All this was in the Rag the other day.
