Georgia basketball got their trip to Italy off to a good start on Monday with a 83-58 win over the Vicenze All-Stars. The Bulldogs got 14 points apiece from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Nemanja Djurisic to lead the team.
Georgia jumped out to a 44-26 halftime lead which was spurred on mostly by the team's dominance on the boards. Tim Dixon finished with eight points and 10 boards while forward Donte Williams added nine rebounds. The Bulldogs grabbed 20 offensive rebounds in the game while also shooting 46 percent from the field.
The Bulldogs will continue exhibition play on Wednesday when they take on Lithuanian team Atletas Kaunaas. The Bulldogs will play their last scheduled game of the Italy trip on August 11 against All-Star Italy.
