Basketball Alive and ‘Dribbling’ in Georgia

Over 50,000 basketball fans across Europe followed their countries this weekend in the second day of qualifying for the 2005 European Championship for Men.

6,000 turned up in Istanbul to watch Turkey take on Estonia in Group E of qualifying, but the record attendance went to Georgia, where 10,000 fans watched their team battle Finland in Tbilisi. It is the first time in 3 years that the Georgian has competed in official European competition.

Shammond Williams was born in the Bronx, grew up in South Carolina and played for the University of North Carolina, so it was a bit of a shock to hear that he will be playing for the Republic of Georgia's national team over the next several years.
