They're doing the "once every four years" foreign exhibition tour allowed by the NCAA this summer. They're going to Rome and Croatia, according to one article.

This is actually a great time for ND to do this, since it allows an extra 10 practices over the summer and some game time for the newcomers.

It will give Lili Thompson some time with the team to get used to running the show with ND's system.

Also, since the freshmen start early in summer school, they're allowed to go, so it will allow freshman forwards Mikayla Vaughn (6'3") and Danielle Patterson(6'2") some playing experience before the season, which will be key with Turner recouping her knee (even if she would be cleared to play next season, she probably wouldn't be 100% until well into the year). Plus, Westbeld is getting ankle surgery and her rehab is projected to be about 4 months, so the freshmen should get plenty of playing time on the trip to allow them to be able to spell her early in the season.
