DALLAS -- Big 12 Conference officials announced today that Texas Tech head men's basketball coach James Dickey will coach a team of all-stars, selected from the league's 12 schools, that will travel to Europe this summer.
The tour was approved during the monthly meeting of Big 12 Conference Directors of Athletics that concluded Tuesday in Dallas. The goodwill tour is scheduled for August 15-17 and will consist of games played in Great Britain, France and either Belgium or the Netherlands.
"We will select one student-athlete from each school based on ability, good academic standing and other factors to take this tour," said Big 12 Commissioner Steve Hatchell.
