Ilic Picking Up Pace in Eurobasket Prelims

Mile Ilic, the forgotten Net this off-season, has been playing more as the Serbian National Team makes it way through "friendly"--exhibition--games prior to Eurobasket07 in Madrid next month. He is recovering from a severe ankle sprain. Ilic had 12 points, 8 rebounds 3 assists and 2 blocks in Serbia's 96-76 blowout of China at the Efes Pilsen Cup in Turkey Thursday. Yi Jian Lian had 17, 9, 1 and 0. On Friday, Ilic had 4 and 4 in an even bigger Serbian blowout of Poland, 100-68.
