Junior guard Jeremy Adams and the Colorado men's basketball team are in Europe for a five-game, 10-day tour, spanning across France, Belgium and The Netherlands. Adams checked in with CUBuffs.com throughout the trip to give fans the inside scoop on the trip. Here's his final report ...
August 21 & 22
I write this as we embark on our 11-hour trip back to Colorado. As of now, I am sure most of you have heard about our victory against the Rotterdam. It was a great way to end our foreign tour. Our defense has improved a lot since our first game in Paris.
Our senior "Diablo" Chen filled up the stat sheet, which leads me to my next statement. Due to complaints from other teammates, I fear I can no longer call Sabatino, Diablo anymore. After You give a guy a nickname like Diablo and he finishes the game with 11 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, and 6 steals, I think it is time for a change. With that in mind, I will now try my best to call him - the "Saburai."
With our last game under our belts, we had one more day to enjoy Europe before we left. The following day we took a tour of the Anne Frank Museum. I am sure most, if not all, know the story of Anne Frank. It is a very sad one and helps you appreciate the little things in life- no matter how cliché that sounds. After taking a tour of Anne Frank Museum, we headed back to our hotel preparing for a farewell cruise.
Throughout the one hour and forty-five minute cruise, we were fed great food and given the chance to learn about Amsterdam's history. The cruise was a great way to end a trip we will, without a doubt, remember for the rest of our lives.
After the cruise, everybody found different ways to enjoy their last night in Amsterdam. I made my way down to the lobby and charmed my way into getting free WIFI for the night. I do plan on telling compliance this, after all I do want to keep my eligibility. Just being facetious, seriously most of us were too tired to further explore Amsterdam after the cruise.
I think I can speak for all of my teammates, when I say we are extremely thankful. We had a great opportunity to come overseas to get better and bond as a team. Culturally, we were exposed to a lot. Now, it is time to get back to Boulder and prepare even more for our upcoming season. Thanks Buff Nation for making all of this possible. Go Buffs!!!
