Ilic Scores 6 Points in 6 Minutes vs. China

Mile Ilic went 3-for-3 from the floor to score 6 points in 6 minutes as Serbia continued its surprising world exhibition tour by beating China, 77-66, in Valencia, Spain. The Serbs were thought to be weakened by the failure of NBA players to join the team. Darko Milicic, the only NBA player on the Serbian team, scored 10 and grabbed 5 boards. Yi Jianlian, China's athletic 7-footer, had 10 and 13 to lead China but shot only 36%. Serbia rotated three of its seven-footers, including Ilic, to contain him.
