Per Pat Hickey’s article:
The Purple Aces will also play in the Islands of the Bahamas Showcase, an eight-team and non-conference tournament in Nassau.

Don’t know if you attend the home games or make it to campus much but all you have to do is ask Mark Spencer, Lance Wilkerson, Walter or any of his staff and they will confirm both the European trip and November 2019 tournament.

Spencer mentioned both last summer. Noah spoke of the plans for Europe on the radio show on 11/26. Walter then said to Noah and those in attendance that it was a “done deal”.

Man, the field for this year's Bahamas Showcase is absolutely BRUTAL. I hope next year's version has an upgraded field or it will be a SOS/RPI killer.

Since this is coming up in 3 months thought I would at least attach the article on when the trip is (roughly) and where they are going:

England, Belgium and France

https://www.courierpress.com/story/sports/college/evansville/2018/11/27/evansville-basketball-take-foreign-trip-next-summer-europe/2126396002/

And from a March 30th Pat Hickey article:

UE will take its foreign trip in late July/early August with stops in England, Belgium and France. It'll consist of a few games, a handful of extra practices and team bonding time – all of which seem ideal for any team that places a high value on knowing roles and playing as a unit.

It seems to me that every team I have seen lately, that has had an overseas trip, has benefited very greatly from the experience. I think this trip, and the Bahamas tournament, will really help the Aces.
