This trip will provide an excellent early measuring stick for our team, in addition to being a great bonding experience for a new group of guys,” said MSU coach Tom Izzo. “It was widely documented that one of the reasons we had such great success in the postseason was the unique chemistry of our team. While many of those same players are returning, we also will have several new players joining the mix, and others playing new and expanded roles. This trip can serve as a foundation, both on and off the court, for what we hope can be a special season in 2015-16.
