Michigan State, UNC, Florida, Texas To Play Three-City Barnstorming Tour In 2018

Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis has devised a four-team barnstorming event that will include three games over an eight-day period.

Michigan State, North Carolina, Florida and Texas have agreed to play three games, one each in New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles while traveling together on a single chartered airplane in December of 2018.

Hollis said each of the four teams will get a home game against an opponent to be determined later to make this a four-game event and qualify as a multi-team event.

"So many of these kids know each other from AAU and everything else that we felt this would be a great way to travel," Hollis said. "I worked with (ADs) Steve Patterson at Texas, Jeremy Foley at Florida and Bubba Cunnningham at North Carolina on this. They and the head coaches are all excited about the opportunity for the student-athletes."
