Yellow Jackets cancel Windsor Trip

Just got a note from Coach Chris Oliver at Windsor with the disappointing news that Georgia Tech, through no fault of the Lancers, has cancelled their trip. No clear reason was provided from the Georgia Tech camp which leads to speculation on why the trip was cancelled and first thought is the possibility that this reflects a sign of times financially. We will dig to find out reasons for this late change in plans.

Tech Basketball cancels trip to Canada

ATLANTA - Georgia Tech's men's basketball team has cancelled its trip to Canada, which was to take place the weekend of Oct. 2-5, due to an NCAA regulation that prohibits such a trip within 30 days of the official start of pre-season practice.
The Yellow Jackets were to depart Oct. 2 for Windsor, Ontario, play two games against the University of Windsor and one against the University of Western Ontario, then return Oct. 6. The trip falls within Tech's fall break from classes.

NCAA regulations allow teams to take an international trip once every four years, but the trip must be occur before the 30-day period leading up to the official start of pre-season practice, which this year is Oct. 16. Tech asked for and received a waiver from the NCAA, but ultimately decided against taking the fall break trip.
