One final look back at KU's Italian adventure
In case you weren't following along last week or missed one of the days, here's a look back at all of the outings and adventures that the Kansas men's basketball team enjoyed during its eight-day tour of Italy.
The Jayhawks played four exhibition games against three different Italian clubs and rolled to easy victories in all four games.
That, according to KU coach Bill Self, was merely part of the reason the Jayhawks went overseas. The rest was to experience a new culture, enjoy a fun trip and develop a greater bond and connection between the Jayhawks themselves.
Because the KU roster that traveled to Italy featured six newcomers, the bonding part of the experience was as important as anything. And it was during these outings to sites like the Colosseum, Vatican City, Lake Como and others where the ability to bond, get to know one other and have a little fun under the umbrella of experiencing something new together for the first time was the easiest to achieve and most obvious to see.
To a man, the KU players and coaches all seemed really engaged throughout the trip and were not just going through the motions of this tour or that one but were actively participating in the events and soaking up the history, sights and every other aspect of the experience.
In case you missed any of them, or just want to look back, here are all of our videos of KU's Italy experience in one convenient spot, posted in chronological order so you can relive it right.
