GAME REPORT


Mussini, Flaccadori Too Much For Latvia

4. Federico Mussini (Italy)
Federico Mussini top-scored for Italy with 24 points

Italy got 24 points from Federico Mussini and 22 from Diego Flaccadori in opening their Group A play with a 72-55 victory over Latvia.

Ervins Meznieks paced three Latvians in double figures with 17 points and also grabbed nine rebounds in the loss.

Turning point: Latvia trailed just 36-34 early in the second half when Mussini scored nine points and Flaccadori added four in a 16-0 run to break the game open 52-34.

Game Hero: You couldn't fairly give it to just Mussini or Flaccadori so let's give it to "Mussidori". The backcourt duo combined for 46 points on 14-of-31 shooting, 13 rebounds, six assists and six steals

Stats Don't Lie: Italy made 20-of-28 free throws compared to 8-of-13 for Latvia while Italy swiped 14 steals.

The Bottom Line: Italy are 1-0 in Group A while Latvia are 0-1.
