Ilic Stars Despite Separated Shoulder

Twelve days after separating his shoulder, Nets draft choice Mile Ilic played a starring role as FMP Zeleznik won its semifinal game in the Serbian national championships. The 7'-2" center, expected to be out for weeks, instead took the court against Crvena Zvezda Thursday, scoring 12 points, grabbing 9 rebounds and blocking three shots in FMP's comeback 79-78 victory. Ilic tied the game at 76 and grabbed a key rebound in the last minute. FMP will play Partizan in next semifinal Friday.
