As you may remember, the Mississippi State men’s basketball team is in Italy at the moment. Sure, they had some difficulties getting over there, but they finally made it.
The basketball team’s Italy trip isn’t going as planned. Broken planes, weather, and Chris Tucker all delayed them. https://t.co/XopXQKk7AQ— FWtCT (@mstatesports) August 3, 2016
Now, after getting some practice in, the Bulldogs are set to take on the entire country of Lithuania. Well, maybe not the entire country. We’re not causing an international incident or anything. But, the Bulldogs will be taking on the Lithuanian basketball team today at 11:30 central time.

If you’re interested in watching the Bulldogs play internationally, head on over to the Mississippi State men’s basketball twitter page where there will be a Periscope link that will show you a live stream of the game.
The Italy trip is probably one of the best things that could happen to prepare this year’s team. With an astonishingly high 9 freshman listed on the roster, this team needs to get live game experience fast. What better way to do so than to actually play games, and to play them on a cool vacation in Italy?
