Baylor Women's Basketball is headed to Italy!

The Lady Bears are expected to arrive in Rome on Sunday and play in three exhibition games Aug. 6, 8 and 11. 

The first game will be against Bosnia/Herzegovina's National Team in Rome. Game number two will be in Florence against TK Hannover of Germany.

The games will wrap up with a match against Muggia Select in Trieste. 

The team will be on their Italian tour for a total of nine days before returning back to the States. 

As part of the tour, the Lady Bears will have the opportunity to visit and tour Rome, Florence, Venice, Trieste and Como. 

While in Rome, they will visit Vatican City, the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. 

The Lady Bears will get a chance to see "The David" in Florence. 

The NCAA has allowed programs to add foreign tours to their schedules every four years since 2010. With that, they also get 10 extra practice days.
