The Mississippi State women's basketball team will have a mix of youth and experience for the 2014-15 season.
MSU coach Vic Schaefer said the trip to Europe that is currently taking place for his team will benefit both areas.
Schaefer has watched as the Bulldogs have done a good job separating business from pleasure.
He wants the time in France and Belgium to be an enjoyable experience because the players had a pretty busy summer.
"We had some 6 a.m. lifts and 6 a.m. conditioning," Schaefer said. "Our kids have been swamped with school stuff, study hall and summer school. They have been here both summer sessions, so they've already had a strict itinerary.
"The thing I like about this group is it's a pretty mature group. If they get an hour to take a nap, they take a nap because they know they are going to be up 12 (a.m.) or 1 studying all night. We've got kids that take great pride in their academics and I take pride in being around those kind of student-athletes because those are the same kind that win championships and be winners in life. They are going to be great pros and I'm not talking about basketball, but great professionals in life (and) in the workplace. This is a special group and a great time to be at Mississippi State."
