UK's return to The Bahamas in 2016 follows a memorable six-game exhibition tour to start the 2014-15 season. The Wildcats built the foundation for a special and historic 38-1 season with a 5-1 exhibition tour, including victories over the Dominican Republic National Team, the Puerto Rico National Team reserves, and Champagne Chalons-Reims Basket, a professional team from France.

The Atlantis is located on Nassau’s Paradise Island, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The Atlantis offers a variety of room accommodations and an array of culinary experiences with world-class dining that includes 40 restaurants and lounges, including Nobu, Café Martinique (Jean-Georges) and Olives (Todd English). 
 
Home to Aquaventure, a 141-acre waterscape comprised of fresh and saltwater lagoons, pools and habitats, the Atlantis is one of the largest open-air marine habitats in the world with more than 50,000 marine life and 250 species.
