Yi Not a Factor as Iran Embarrasses China in FIBA Asia Cup

New, comments

Iran dominated Team China from the opening tip and won the FIBA Asia Cup Sunday, 70-52. Yi Jianlian grabbed 11 rebounds but shot poorly, going 5-for-16 overall and 1-for-4 from the line to finish with 11 points. Iran was up by 17 at the half and 25 in the fourth. Hamed Ehadadi, Iran's 7'2" center, scored 19 points and grabbed 17 rebounds but it was the Iranian guards who pushed the tempo at both ends.
