    I would assume, or other arrangements would be made. Prohm was already talking about limiting TH's minutes due to his heavy basketball schedule this summer. So the staff is planning on him being on the trip.
    Honestly, giving TH some games off maybe for the best to get Bolton, Grill, and Jackson extra minutes together and seeing how their games mesh. I have no concern with Haliburton fitting in come November not playing these 3 games.

    Just please - nobody injured!
    From our last Euro tour I remember the box scores won't mean much since these games are about as competitive as shirts-skins game at State Gym - seriously, some of these teams our equip managers could beat. So, just don't get anybody injured!

    Close, but not going to work out to see the guys play. We are in Rome. Leave for Florence on Monday. So we will miss by a couple days. First time we have traveled to Europe and Italy. Mrs. Best can cross another thing off her bucket list. I am a homebody and that is probably not going to change. Do wish the team safe travels and good luck.

    He was scheduled to leave the skills camp early so he could be back in time

    So, what is the extent of reporting on these games? Any streaming, box scores, anything?

    There's so many teams on trips, I wish we could just scrimmage other colleges while we're there.

    Yikes. And it was the "B" team ?@#?

    https://www.news-gazette.com/sports/illini-drop-final-game-in-italy/article_0c5eadbe-bbb9-11e9-b83e-274383954f1c.html

    "...llinois trailed after two quarters Saturday against the Netherlands National B Team — the first deficit halftime deficit in its foreign tour of Italy — and couldn't mount enough of a comeback in the 82-72 loss in Rome. The Illini outscored Netherlands in the fourth quarter, but fell just short in finishing their tour schedule with a 3-1 record...."

    I'm going to guess no one here has any idea of the quality of the Netherlands B team.

    That would be me, but I'm using comparisons to teams we played on our last Euro trip a few years back, where winning scores were by 35-40 pts. I'll consider this trip a success if return with no injuries :)

    It is nice to see teams that have played other P5 programs so have somewhat of an idea of the competition level. If we beat that team by 20 it's probably a good sign for us. Or Illinois is god awful.

    I know these preseason projections are fraught with problems, but this one here has Illinois as the #15 team in the country (and ISU at #54 in the same rankings).

    So if those are any indication, we should be getting rocked this week. :)

    1) Illinois is missing some players.

    I assume they requested a Final Four from the pope?
