The videos include footage of the start of summer practices, the team’s summer workouts, some off-the-court looks at the team and concluding with the team’s trip to Spain.

The four videos combined total a little over 22 minutes and it offers an up-close look at being a Big Ten player during a summer where an exhibition trip is included.

Many colleges have already started fall semester, but Northwestern is still on an overseas trip in Spain thanks to the school being on trimesters and starting later.

The trip is a big one for a young Wildcat roster that needs all the experience they can get before a crucial Big Ten season. Sophomore wing Scottie Lindsey is one of the players Northwestern is hoping makes a leap during the 2015-16 season and he showed a positive flash in a win this weekend with a poster dunk over a defender.

The Wildcats finish the trip in Spain with one more game.

Northwestern turned a seven-point halftime lead into a rout, defeating UCAM Murcia II, 94-54, in the third game of the team’s tour of Spain.

The Wildcats outscored UCAM Murcia II 32-11 in the third quarter with Joey van Zegeren, the transfer forward, finishing three alley-oop dunks.

Those dunks resulted in half of van Zegeren’s offense output, finishing with a dozen points. The 6-foot-10 forward from the Netherlands spent his first three seasons at Virginia Tech, but decided to enroll at Northwestern as a graduate transfer. He averaged 9.8 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in a shortened 2014-15 season with the Hokies after being suspended in early January

Scottie Lindsey finished with a game-high 20 points. The team’s top returning scorer, Tre Demps, added 18 points while freshman forward Aaron Falzon scored in double figures for the third straight game.

The Wildcats are 1-1 on the tour so far, which continues on Saturday in Barcelona against CB Tarragona.
