US men's basketball team plans trip to Senegal

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -- The U.S. men's national basketball team will visit the African continent for the first time, conducting a clinic in Senegal next month.

The Americans will travel to Dakar on Aug. 27 and join the Senegal national team in putting on the clinic for boys and girls at the Marius Ndiaye Stadium.

The U.S. will also tour Senegal's Goree Island and will finish its visit by attending a reception hosted by the Senegalese government.

The trip comes a day after the Americans finish their exhibition schedule before the World Cup of Basketball with a game against Slovenia at Gran Canaria, Spain.
