The Wright State men’s basketball team recently traveled to Italy, visiting popular tourist destinations along with playing multiple exhibition games.
The Raiders visited Lake Como, Vicenza, Verona, Florence, Pisa and Rome. The Sistine Chapel, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Statue of David and The Duomo Cathedral of Florence were just a few of their stops.
“It was the biggest building that I’ve ever seen in my life,” junior Loudon Love said of The Duomo of Florence. “It was unbelievable.”
The Raiders squeezed in several games during their 10-day trip, picking up wins against Senna Basket, Vicenza Locali and Caffee Ginko with an average margin of 34 points.
“As a coaching staff we thought that it would be a good trip to be able to play some good basketball but also to learn some things as well,” said Scott Nagy, men’s basketball head coach.
“I’m so glad that I got to come to Wright State,” said Tanner Holden, a freshman guard. “That trip was definitely once in a lifetime.”
The 2019-20 men’s basketball season tips off on Nov. 5 against Central State.
