Summer Tour of Italy Provides Lasting Memories, Experience

The Siena men's basketball team completed a 14-day tour of Italy on August 29. Tour stops include Lake Como, Venice, San Marino, Florence, Siena and Rome.

"This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many of our guys," head coach Fran McCaffery said. "In addition to experiencing all that Italy had to offer, we grew closer as a team and learn more about one another. With so many returning players, the timing seemed perfect."

Below, we inviote you to share the memories of the trip by reading junior Cory Magee's blog and by searching through the daily photo galleries and reading the game recaps.
