Great if true.

These types of trips also help with recruiting.

Not trying to be argumentative but what do you base your statement on ?
I think the international trip which every team is eligible for every four years is not an advantage which is particular to SJU. It seems to me that hard work on the recruiting trail, a winning record, a proven style of play and a style of play that suits the recruits strengths far outway anything else. Furthermore our last few European recruits have not proven to be too beneficial for the program. I strongly prefer the juco and high school route when it comes to recruiting.

Probably not a strategy to rest upon but overall no down side. I do seem to recall a recruit committing to a school within the past few seasons and saying (paraphrase) that his choice of school over other very good choices was helped because they had a trip scheduled the following summer that he was going to be able to participate in.
