China Medal Hopes Die with Loss to Lithuania

After a fast start--6 points, 5 boards in the first quarter--foul trouble slowed Yi Jianlian and he finished with 11 points and 9 rebounds in China's 94-68 loss to Lithuania Wednesday. The loss ended any hopes for a Chinese medal in mens' basketball. Yi shot 3-for-7 and went 5-for-6 from the line, with two steals, in 23 minutes. Yao Ming had 19 for China. Ex-Pacer Sarunas Jasikevicius led Lithuania with 23.
