Labor Day Basketball????

Don't know what to make of this, and maybe the Internets just have me confused, but it appears from the listing below we are playing in Canada Labor Day weekend against Windsor and Western Ontario? I haven't see any other confirmation.....

The Windsor Lancers' men's basketball team announced their U.S. opponents over Labour Day weekend.
The Lancers will play Southern Illinois, of the Missouri Valley Conference, Saturday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. and then Bowling Green, of the Mid-American Conference, Sunday, Aug. 31 at 1 p.m. The Lancers and the Salukis will then play again Monday, Sept. 1 at 11 a.m.
"It's another great opportunity for our players to play against some of the best opposition we can schedule," Windsor coach Chris Oliver said. "Southern Illinois has had a great recruiting class and they're a traditional power in that conference."
As for the Lancers, Oliver said "we'll have at least six newcomers to our team so it's a great head start and a chance to get a feel for who we are."
Each day is billed as a doubleheader with Western playing the same two NCAA teams. Tickets are $5 for each doubleheader and they're available at the St. Denis Centre door.
