    The University of Colorado forward will join Athletes in Action for a four-game tour through the country that begins Aug. 14.

    The Athletes in Action squad will convene at Mercer University on Aug. 9 for a three-day training camp before flying to Europe. The team will be based out of Milan and will compete against teams from Italy, Kosovo, and Lithuania.

    This could help Tory a lot. Great opportunity.

    Good for him, it definitely has helped other players in the past. I think he can be a big difference maker this year if he can stay out of foul trouble

    If I read the AIA information correctly Tory should have returned from the trip on the 20th. Anyone have updates on how things went?

    Here is the blog from AIA

    http://teamblogs.athletesinaction.org/basketball-italy

    Looks like they dominated in game 1. Won game 2 (Specifically mentioned Tory chipped in with 8pts and 6rebs). Lost game 3 against the Kosovo National team and won game 4 against some local team in Sondrio.

    Overall a successful trip, no real info about stats though.

    After reading more of the blog it appears stats will be mailed to the coach soon. So since the arrived home 2 days ago, probably hasn't arrived yet.

    Am I the only one who keeps misreading the thread title as "Tory Miller going to Italy for Action"?

    Suddenly this thread is in need of a certain type of musical background.
