The West Virginia University men's basketball team blew out a professional team from Italy. WVU beat Fulgor Libertas Forli 90-67. Some of the Mountaineers saw a familiar face on the opposing team. Former Georgetown Hoya Austin Freeman played for that team and was the high scorer with 32 points.

WVU opened the game on an 8-0 run, but Fulgor Libertas Forli came back and led after the first quarter 24-22. The Mountaineers regained the lead by halftime at 45-44.  WVU pulled away in the third quarter outscoring its opponent 27-8 and eventually won the game by 23 points.

Kevin Jones led the scoring for the Mountaineers with 24 points. Three other West Virginia players finished in double figures. Truck Bryant scored 15 points in the victory. Deniz Kilicli added 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Freshman Keaton Miles also scored 14 points.

"Obviously, I thought we played a whole lot better," said WVU head coach Bob Huggins. "They didn't speed us up the way we got sped up the other day. I thought KJ (Kevin Jones) was terrific and we were a lot better defensively. Truck did a good job running the team and getting us into our offense."

The Mountaineers will play the final game of their Italy trip Saturday night against Basket Santarcangelo.
