NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - An NCAA rule that allows college basketball teams to travel outside the U.S. to face foreign competition once every four years is giving the Oklahoma Sooners a chance for a bit of extra practice time.

The Sooners plan to leave Tuesday for a 10-day trip to Belgium and France, during which they'll play five games against European professional and club teams.

The Sooners held 10 practices during the last few weeks to prepare for the trip and coach Lon Kruger says that extra time will give his team an edge entering the 2013-14 season, especially with so many new players on the squad.

Oklahoma is coming off a 20-12 season that included its first NCAA tournament trip since the Blake Griffin era.
