The UC Riverside men’s basketball team will play three preseason games in Quebec City, Canada, from Aug. 1-6.

The Highlanders take on Laval University on Aug. 2 and play Qc United Basketball the following day. They will face Royal de Quebec on Aug. 5.

“This trip comes at a great time for our program,” Coach Dennis Cutts said in a statement. “The 10 days of practice and three games will allow us to get better from a basketball standpoint, but the trip will also create a bonding experience that will put the program ahead come fall.”

UCR took a preseason trip to Vancouver four years ago.
