MSU plans five exhibitions for August’s European trip

By Brad Locke/NEMS Daily Journal

Mississippi State’s men’s basketball team has set the schedule for next month’s tour of Europe.
The Bulldogs will play five exhibition games in three countries between Aug. 7-13. It’s their first foreign exhibition excursion since 2006, when they played two games in Canada.
State starts in the Netherlands against that country’s under-23 team, then takes on Rotterdam Basket the following day. There will be two games in Ghent, Belgium, against Waregem and St. Jan-Antwerp.
The tour concludes in Paris against Vanves Basket.
The NCAA allows teams to take exhibition tours such as this every four years.
