Pac-12 men's hoops all-stars get their first taste of China

The Pac-12 Men's Basketball All-Star Team was compiled from 10 different schools and spanned six states. At face value, the student-athletes' task was simple: play a trio basketball games against Chinese university and professional teams.

Their journey began back on Aug. 8 in the San Francisco Bay Area and took them more than 3,000 miles and nine time zones away. It's safe to say the unique experience will mean more than a simple offseason road trip.

Look through the presentation below to hear about some of the early moments from the all-stars' journey to China.
