Ilic Grabs 4 Boards, Blocks 3 Shots in Worlds Debut

Serbia finally found its groove and Mile Ilic finally found the court Monday as the defending world champ defeated Lebanon 104-57 in the Worlds. Ilic played only 12 minutes but made the most of it, scoring three points while grabbing four rebounds and blocking three shots. It was Serbia's first victory after being upset by Nigeria and losing a heartbreaker to France. Bostjan Nachbar's Slovenia team had the day off and will face Team USA Tuesday.
