MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia basketball players Joe Mazzulla and Cam Thoroughman have pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a July scuffle with police at a Pittsburgh Pirates game.

The two were charged with disorderly conduct and public drunkenness Monday in Pittsburgh Municipal Court. Other charges were dropped. Each player was ordered to pay $222 in fines and court costs.

Both players can request to have their records expunged after paying their fines.

Mazzulla is a junior and is expected to be the starting point guard this season. Thoroughman is a redshirt sophomore.
