VICENZA, Italy - The Boston University men's basketball team opened with a personal-best 31 points in a quarter during its overseas trip and went on to claim a dominating 99-46 victory over the Vicenza All-Stars at the Pala Goldini Arena on Monday night.

The Terriers shot 55 percent from the field to improve to 3-0. Sophomore Cedric Hankerson opened with a 3-pointer and the game's MVP Justin Alston later scored three consecutive baskets to help give BU a commanding 31-8 lead after one quarter.

Finishing with 14 points on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting and five rebounds, Alston converted on two more attempts in the second, as BU went into the locker room ahead, 51-20. The All-Stars quickly tallied nine points in the first three minutes of the third but would manage just one made free throw the rest of the quarter.

Freshman Cheddi Mosely hit a free throw at 3:43 in the fourth to put BU's lead at 50 points (88-38) for the first time.

Sophomore Eric Fanning nearly had a double-double with 16 points and seven rebounds. Freshman Nick Havener contributed 12 points, and sophomore Blaise Mbargorba added 11 points. The Terriers won the battle at the boards, 51-15. 

BU will conclude its four-game overseas schedule with a trip to Sam Basket Massagno in Lugano, Switzerland on Tuesday evening. The squad is a member of Switzerland's top league and features Duke alum Josh Hairston ('14), who served as team captain this past year for the Blue Devils.
