GW Men's Hoops Alum Armwood Signs in Italy's Serie A
Forward Set to Join Newly Promoted Aquila Basket Trento
George Washington men's basketball alumnus Isaiah Armwood ('14) has signed to play professionally with Aquila Basket Trento of Italy's top-tier Serie A league.
Armwood, who worked out for a host of NBA teams (Heat, Kings, Nuggets, Wizards) this summer, joins several former Colonials currently playing professionally in Europe - Damian Hollis '10 (AV Cantu - Italy Serie A), Lasan Kromah '13 (Alba Fehervar - Hungary A Division), Pops Mensah-Bonsu '06 (Olympiacos - Greece A1) and Tony Taylor '12 (PGE Turow - Poland TBL).
Mensah-Bonsu (Galatasaray - Turkey TBL) and Taylor were both part of teams that reached their respective league's championship series in 2014, with Taylor helping PGE Turow to its first-ever league crown.
A 6-foot-9 forward from Baltimore, Armwood capped his career as a Colonial in 2013-14 with Second Team All-Atlantic 10 and A-10 All-Defensive Team honors, leading the team in rebounding (8.4 rpg), blocks (1.5 bpg) and minutes (32.0 mpg) and ranking second on the team in scoring (12.7 ppg). He helped guide GW to an appearance in the 2014 A-10 Championship semifinals and the program's 11th all-time bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Despite playing just two seasons at GW from 2012-14, Armwood is one of only two players in program history to amass at least 500 points (778), 500 rebounds (539), 100 blocks (119), 100 assists (102) and 50 steals (54).
Aquila Basket Trento, located in Trento in northern Italy, went 22-8 overall and won both the A2 Gold league's regular season and playoff title in June to earn promotion to Serie A. The 2014-15 season is set to begin on Oct. 12, with Armwood slated to face Hollis' AV Cantu team on Oct. 26.
