Rams Road Trip West

0 Posted by - October 26, 2015 - Basketball

The team took its first road trip this past week/weekend. This post includes lots of pictures from the trip (excuse the photography quality…all pics taken with my phone). We flew to BC and the trip involved three basketball games, some sightseeing, meals, travel by van, bus and ferry, study breaks and a 2 hour “amazing race” type team building activity. At least 4 players wrote midterms while we were on the road and many were studying, reading and working on papers and projects. We left Toronto Wednesday night and returned Sunday night.

After the Vic game we hopped on a bus to the airport for a flight back to Vancouver and then flight back to Toronto. A great road trip with lots of great pre-season competition.

The Ryerson Rams basketball team host the University of Toronto at the Mattamy Athletic Centre for their season opener on Wednesday November 4th. We have one more pre-season road trip this coming weekend to Pennsylvania.
