Austin is going to be playing in the same Italian league as Micah Downs, for VL Pesaro, a team where his father was very successful when Austin was a little boy. I think his first game with the team will be tomorrow, vs. Micah's Juve Caserta team.

I'm always curious to get a feel for where our overseas Zags are going to be living.

From Pesaro to Rome:

Looks ike Austin's debut with Pesaro was not an auspicious one, as he netted 12 points but only after chucking up a ton of shots. Pesaro fell to Micah's Juve Caserta team 73-69.

Micah had a better outing, netting 24 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists.

Austin had a more productive outing today, as Consultinvest Pesaro beat Umana Reyer Venezia 82-75 (http://www.legabasket.it/game/66/66497.html), yielding 26 points for Austin, with 8 rebounds, and 3 assists, with a valuation of 32:



Micah also had a nice outing in a 70-86 losing effort today against Banco di Sardegna Sassari (http://www.legabasket.it/game/66/66498.html). Micah came away with 22 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, and a 33 valuation in the effort.

Austin leads in points for the day in the league, and Micah is 5th. Micah leads the valuation category at 33, followed by Austin at 32. Micah is also represented in the assists category, with 6, which is 4th best in the league:

Thanks ZN,

Looks like the WCC is represented well in the Italian First Division..

For those interested, Vancouverite (and former SCU opponent) Marc Trasolini played in the first division last year as well, but plays in the Second division this year(for Agropoli). He is dominating that league, yesterday he scored 39 points.
