NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- It's an August tradition in the Atlantic 10 Conference -- multiple men's basketball teams travelling abroad for foreign tours.

This year, it's Davidson and Rhode Island's turn. The Wildcats are headed to Europe -- Italy and Slovenia to be exact, while Rhody heads to the Caribbean for a trip through the Bahamas.

Davidson held an intrasquad scrimmage before departing for Europe. The Wildcats' trip was previewed by an article in the Charlotte Observer.

Rhode Island began play in the Bahamas this week, winning its first game against NBPA All-Stars. The Rams' trip was called a "working vacation" by the Providence Journal and the Independent noted that Rhody fans gave the team a sendoff.

Stay tuned to for updates on the two teams summer tours.
