China Wins Close Contest as Yi Gets Another Double-Double

New, comments

Up by 10 with two minutes to go, Team China barely survived Tuesday's FIBA Asia Cup contest with Lebanon to remain undefeated. A three point attempt with a second left bounced off the rim and China won, 71-68. Yi Jianlian scored 19 points on a variety of post moves and jumpers, grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked five shots. Former NBA journeyman Jackson Vroman had 25 points and 12 rebounds for Lebanon.
