COLLEGE PARK - The defending Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament champion Maryland men's basketball team will get an early start to its preseason with a five-game, 12-day tour of Italy from August 17-28.

The tour gives the Terrapins an opportunity to play against some of Europe's premier professional teams. The Terps plan to play four Italian professional squads, with one game scheduled against Kiev (Ukraine), one of the most famous professional teams in the world.

The NCAA allows men's basketball teams one foreign trip every four years. The last international trip the Terrapins took to France in August 1994
