For those of you that might’ve forgot, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team has departed for Italy and will begin playing exhibition games against select clubs starting today.
The team logged eight official practices prior to the trip and departed from Syracuse on Saturday. The Syracuse guys made their way into Lake Como yesterday morning.

Incoming freshman Jesse Edwards met up with the team in Italy after spending time with family in the Netherlands. John Bol Ajak unfortunately could not make the trip as he had issues with his visa. Rising junior Marek Dolezaj did make the trip, but he’s not expected to play given his injured finger.
