Many don't get the opportunity to take a trip to France or Belgium.
That's what the Mississippi State women's basketball team gets to do next week and head coach Vic Schaefer is going to make sure the Bulldogs enjoy the experience.
Even though basketball games will be played and MSU plans to win those, Schaefer said the visit to Europe is about so much more.
"We're going to go over there and allow these kids to have a great experience," Schaefer said on Thursday. "I'm taking my family so I'm going to enjoy them and my girls. A lot of times they see you in the heat of battle or in the office talking on the phone. This gives us an opportunity to allow us to enjoy our staff outside of the competition realm. We do a good job as a staff to allow us the chance to enjoy our players as much as possible. From that standpoint for me, it's going to be an opportunity to really try to relax with my team.
"When we play the game, they turn the clock on and keep score, we're going to try to win, but at the end of the day, it's about the learning experience and trying to develop the chemistry of this team for the upcoming season."
