    Bloomington, Ind. - Indiana senior guard Tom Coverdale has been named to the 2002 Big Ten Men's Basketball Foreign Tour Team, the league office announced. At least one player from each Big Ten institution is represented on the 12-team roster that Illinois coach Bill Self will take on a five-game tour of Germany, Belguim and The Netherlands on Aug. 8-18. Last summer, IU coach Mike Davis led the Big Ten Foreign Tour Team to a 6-0 mark through England and Ireland, marking just the second time in the tour's 10-year history that a team had gone undefeated.

    Coverdale was the heart and soul of Indiana's 2002 national runners-up and Big Ten Co-championship team. The All-Big Ten second team selection was second on the team in scoring at 11.9 points per game and was also among the Big Ten leaders in assists (third, 4.81 per game) and steals (seventh, 1.54). In addition to earning NCAA South Regional MVP honors, Coverdale dished out 178 assists, the second-best single-season effort in IU history. His 70 three-pointers are fifth in the Hoosier single-season record book, and the 6-2 senior needs 188 points to become the 37th member of Indiana's 1,000 career point club.

    Coverdale will be joined on the Big Ten Foreign Tour roster by Illinois' Sean Harrington and Roger Powell, Michigan State's Chris Hill, Minnesota's Ben Johnson, Michigan's Bernard Robinson, Jr., Northwestern's Winston Blake, Penn State's Jason McDougald, Wisconsin's Dave Mader, Iowa's Jared Reiner, Ohio State's Velimir Radinovic and Purdue's Ivan Kartelo.
