Friday marked travel day for the Stanford women's basketball team as it embarked on its 11-day preseason trip to Italy, where it will play basketball as well as tourist over three cities and four contests.
The Cardinal departed San Francisco Friday afternoon with a plan to arrive in Rome late Friday night following a short stop in Frankfurt, Germany. The team will stay in Rome for the weekend and an additional day, visiting The Vatican before hitting the court for its first game of the tour Monday night (late morning on the West Coast). Stanford will face off against Fortitudo Basket Pomezia at 8 p.m. in Italy, then make its way to Florence for the second leg of the journey.
In Florence, along with plenty of sight-seeing, the Cardinal will continue action, playing consecutive nights Wednesday and Thursday against Basket Ducato and Giants Marghera, respectively.
From there, the Cardinal will visit Milan, ending the trip's competitive aspect with a Saturday night contest against Sesto San Giovanni.
