After back-to-back 20-loss seasons, maybe LSU should try to move some regular season games to Italy.
Trent Johnson’s Tigers got off to a good start — or “un buon inizio” according to the online English-to-Italian translator I used — on their Italian exhibition tour last night. LSU defeated Virtus Frusino 106-70 in Rome.
“Despite the time adjustment and the long travel day, our intensity and energy was good to start the game and we were able to sustain it,” Johnson said.
The Tigers will play a total of six games in 11 days as they tour Italia and — hopefully — they’ll do some team-building along the way. Beats the heck out of one of those cheesy ropes courses.
