Yi Scores 18, Grabs 11 as China Beats UAE in FIBA Cup

Yi Jianlian and Sun Yue led their team to a 82-59 win over the UAE Monday, but the game was closer than the final score suggests. Yi scored most of his 18 points early, but didn't shoot well, particulary his new signature shot, the jump hook. He was 5-for-14, but 8-for-10 from the line. He finished with 11 boards, 4 assists and 2 blocks. UAE got within eight twice in the third before a Sun-led charge put it away.
