Southeast Missouri State University assistant men’s basketball coach Chris Moore and senior forward Joel Angus III spent two weeks in Europe from August 8-19.
Moore and Angus were invited to join the Global Sports Academy, a not-for-profit organization participating in domestic and international competition since 1991. Global Sports Academy's mission is to arrange athletic competition between equally matched teams at all levels and to "Promote International Goodwill" and a better understanding between nations through sports.
Angus played on Moore's team, which trained, competed and toured in Holland, Germany and Belgium. The team, which consisted of several other NCAA Division I players, played five games in nine days. Angus averaged 8.4 points per game for the two-week tour.
A native of Brooklyn, New York, Angus is one of four returnees for the Redhawks this upcoming 2016-17 season. Southeast also welcomes nine new players to this year’s roster.
The Redhawk men’s basketball team is scheduled to open practice on September 30 and tips off the season at Illinois on November 11. Southeast, under the direction of second-year head coach Rick Ray, plays a 31-game schedule with 14 dates at the Show Me Center this year.
