Marco Killingsworth, a 6'8", 265-pound senior-to-be at Indiana this fall, will be Indiana's representative on the soon-to-be-announced Big Ten Foreign Tour team which will compete in Spain from Aug. 9-19.
This will be Killingsworth's first game action since the 2003-04 season, when he averaged a team-best 13.7 points and 6.9 rebounds for Auburn. Killingsworth, who earned second-team All-SEC honors as a junior, decided to transfer at the conclusion of the 2004 season after Coach Cliff Ellis was fired, and ultimately wound up in Bloomington. Due to transfer rules, Killingsworth had to sit out the 2004-05 season, giving him one year of eligibility at IU.
The Big Ten All-Star team will be coached by Illinois Coach Bruce Weber. Weber led Illinois to a 37-2 mark a year ago, including a Big Ten regular season and postseason championship and a runner-up finish in the NCAA Tournament.
This marks the 13th trip overseas for a Big Ten All-Star team since its debut in 1991. The Big Ten has fielded a team every year except for 2000 and 2003. The Big Ten Foreign Tours have given more than 268 student-athletes the opportunity to travel abroad, as the men have toured such places as Japan, France, Italy, Finland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, England and Ireland while the women have traveled to Australia, New Zealand, Hungary, England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, Slovakia, France and Switzerland. In 12 years, the men's teams have posted a 49-31 record.
