Baltimore, Md. - Greyhounds sophomore guard Brett Harvey has been selected to participate with a team of college players that will be playing four games in Belgium as part of a 10-day tour from August 7-16.

The tour begins with practices and touring in Amsterdam for four days. Among the expected sightseeing highlights are visits to the Vincent Van Gogh Art Museum and the Anne Frank House. After busing to Belgium on August 12, games are scheduled the final four nights, two in Brugge and two in Brussels.

Additional members of the team are 6-7 forward Landon Milbourne of Maryland, 6-9 forward Perry Stevenson from Kentucky, 6-9 forward Bryan Davis of Texas A&M and Georgia Tech's 6-8 forward Zach Peacock. Harvey is one of just four guards selected.

A native of New City, N.Y., Harvey started 30 of 31 games as a freshman for the Greyhounds, averaging 7.4 points and 4.2 assists while playing the second-most minutes on the team (31.0). Twice named MAAC Rookie of the Week, Harvey poured in a career-high 19 points with six assists in the home win over Rider. Recently, he helped the Hudson Valley entrant capture the silver medal in the men's basketball open division at the Empire State Games.
