Big Ten Basketball Tournament - Nebraska v Purdue Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images

The Nebraska men’s basketballs squad is in Italy for a few games. Their first one starts later this morning at 11:30am. I will have a rundown of the trip before that first game.

I was looking forward to a live stream of the games but that will not be happening unless someone holds their phone up for Twitter or Facebook live.

Hopefully we get a good idea what this team will be like. The international game is a little slower, less physical, and spread out than what we are use to in the state so this should be interesting.

Anyway, I hope you all had a great weekend and your Monday goes well. If you are just on your fist cup of coffee like I am, Godspeed.
