Hawk Nation,
This is your Director of Athletics, Anton Goff, sending the first of many blogs about our men’s basketball team's trip to Australia. Today is Wednesday and we take off on Friday. I am absolutely excited about this trip. I have never been to Australia, but it has always been on my bucket list and I am looking forward to finally checking this off! I haven’t started packing yet, but I did just receive our detailed itinerary for the trip. We will be gone from Friday, August 15 through Thursday, August 28. That is a lot to pack for, but I think I can handle it.
Specifically, we will be traveling to the Australian cities of Sydney, Melbourne, and Cairns. During this tour, we will play five very competitive games. One of the great things about this trip are all of the different experiences it will provide our student-athletes. Many of them do not get the opportunity to travel abroad during the school year, so this will give our team the opportunity to experience a foreign country and culture. Additionally, I believe this trip will also serve as a great team building experience. I know we all will get to know each other a lot better after traveling on a plane for about 24 hours each way. I think we all expect to have some great lifetime memories from this trip.
Well, Hawk Nation, I hope you are as excited as I am for this upcoming season, and you will continue to follow us on our first of many trips. I will do my best to keep everyone informed during our Australia trip. Hopefully, you will feel like you are a part of the team by getting a first-hand look at everything we are experiencing while we are Down Under. I will also be Tweeting from Down Under, so for up-to-date pictures, scores, and other happenings, follow me on Twitter: @AD_Goff_UHart.  
It’s almost time to take “Hawk Nation Domination” Down Under. Come fly with the Hawks (or just read my blog).  LOL!!!
