TORREJON, Madrid, Spain - The first day of travel to Spain for the LMU men's basketball team included an 11 hour flight, taking off from LAX at roughly 6 pm local time on Monday and landing in Spain on Tuesday at roughly 3 pm. That is nothing new for fifth year senior Ayodeji Egbeyemi, who is the first of 12 features during the Lions' trip abroad.
This is Egbeyemi's second trip to Spain, making the 12,000-mile flight in 2010. With his two trips to Spain, his annual 15,500-mile trip home each summer, a trip to China with the Nigerian National team and the standard in season travel with the Lions, Egbeyemi has tallied more than 150,000 miles of flight time in his career.
With the experience in hand, Egbeyemi talks about this year's trip, the keys to navigating team travel and airports, and his goals for his final season with the Lions.
