Nachbar Helps Slovenia Upset Serbia

Bostjan Nachbar scored 6 points--two three pointers--and for the second straight game Mile Ilic sat on the bench as Slovenia defeated Serbia, 78-74, Sunday in the final tune-up before the World Championships. Slovenia had been disappointing and Serbia surprising before the game, held in Singapore, but Slovenia, with five NBA players, finally showed its potential. Serbia must cut a player this week to get down to 12 for the Worlds...but there'll be no decision before the team arrives in Japan.
