PROVO, UTAH -- BYU's basketball team just finished touring Europe.
This article, written before the trip, highlights the experiences
that sophomore Eric Nielsen may have. One stop on the trip will be
Croatia where Nielsen, who served a mission in Russia will be able to
use his fluency in the Russian language.
Another stop will be Italy, where Nielsen's father Chris will be, as
he travels to return to the site of his mission 25 years ago. Then,
on to England where Nielsen, hopefully, will be able to meet up with
his younger brother, Nathan. Nathan has been serving a full-time
mission in England since march. Since the younger brother left for
his mission 2 months before Eric returned from his mission, this is a
rare opportunity to see each other.
The visit will also be an emotional one for head coach Steve
Cleveland, who will be returning to his old mission field of London,
