The Bulldogs dominated the game from the start, leading 44-26 at halftime and finishing with an 83-58 victory. Georgia was led in scoring by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Nemanja Djurisic -- playing in front of his parents, who had driven from Montenegro -- both of whom had 14 points. Tim Dixon enjoyed a big night on the boards, snagging 10 rebounds to go along with his eight points. Other standout numbers included nine rebounds from Donte' Williams, 20 offensive rebounds by the Bulldogs, as well as 46 percent shooting from the floor. For the next stop on our tour of Italy, we will depart in the morning for the magnificent city of Florence.

Preseason basketball in Italy
The young Fox hounds are over in Italy for a preseason tour against some European squads, getting them invaluable experience at a higher level, and together. These trips are often great growing times for teams, and with our young frontcourt, and freshman backcourt, this trip couldn't possibly have come at a better time (well, kind of. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Director of Baskeetball Ops Kent Davidson on the loss of his wife). They played their first game yesterday, and won big. Let's hope this group comes together well, the freshman are ready to contribute in a big way, and this team can make it's way to an NCAA bubble.
