Ilic Defends Well as FMP Wins Adriatic Championship

Mile Ilic scored 8 points on perfect 3-for-3 shooting and played good defense as his FMP Zeleznik squad beat Partizan, 73-72, in the Adriatic League Final 8 championship game Sunday. The 7'-2" Nets draft choice helped hold 7'-2" Kosta Perovic to 6 points on 3-for-9 shooting. Perovic, an NBA draft prospect, had outmuscled Ilic a month ago. Ilic took all three of his shots in the first six minutes of the game. He shot 12-for-17, 70.5%, in the three-game tournament, held in Sarajevo.
