The Big Ten Men's Basketball Foreign Tour team suffered its second loss of the trip falling to VIC Barcelona, 110-104, on Monday in Barcelona, Spain.

After taking Sunday off, the conference squad returned to action against VIC Barcelona, and looked ready to avenge Saturday's loss as the teams remained even at the end of the first period (30-30). After falling behind in the second period, 58-53, the Tour squad responded, posting a 10-2 run late in the third quarter to cut the deficit from 15 points to seven, before the hosts claimed an 82-73 edge heading into the final stanza. The Big Ten continued to rally, cutting the lead to three points in the final six minutes, however the Spanish club team ended the Tour contingent's comeback with a three-pointer at the 45 second mark to ensure a 110-104 triumph.

Illinois' Calvin Brock and Brian Randle led the Big Ten squad with 18 and 17 points, respectively. Randle also added a team-best seven rebounds, while Brock tallied five assists. Indiana's Marco Killingsworth followed with 14 points and four rebounds and Michigan State's Goran Suton closed out the league's double-figure scorers with 10 points. Northwestern's Evan Seacat also dished out a team-best six assists, while tallying nine points.

Despite scoring over 100 points in the last two games, the Big Ten Foreign Tour Team is now 0-2 on its journey through Europe and will next travel to Valencia, Spain to take on the Alcora Basketball Club on Tuesday and the Pamesa Valencia Basketball Club on Wednesday.
