The University of Maine women's basketball team will visit Greece next May 11-20.

The team will play three games (opponents TBA).

NCAA rules allow teams to go on one foreign trip every four years.

The Maine men's basketball team announced a trip to Costa Rica earlier this month.

Fans are invited to join the women's team on its trip to Greece. The cost of the trip is $8,600 per couple, $4,500 for a single person. A portion of that cost ($500) will go to the team's travel expenses.

The trip includes:

  • Guided tour of Athens
  • Full day excursion of Nafpilo, Mycenae and Epidaurus
  • Half day tour of Cape Sounio and Temple of Poseidon
  • Flight to Crete
  • Full day excursion - Rethymno, Knosso Palace, Heraklion
  • Three island cruise with the team - Saronic Islands (Hydra, Aegina, Poros)
  • Three Black Bear basketball games
  • Round-trip bus transportation from Orono to Montreal
