Yi, Ilyasova, and Markota in Turkey

Yi held his own against the Serbs, but the same can't be said for the rest of the Chinese team

China fell 96-76 to Serbia in their second game of the EFES World Cup 6, with Yi Jianlian once again the best player on the court for the Chinese. Yi talled 17 points and 9 rebounds on 8/12 shooting from the field and 1/2 from the line. The two losses mean the Chinese are eliminated from the tournament. UPDATE: my mistake, there's a consolation game for the last-place teams from each group. China plays Latvia tomorrow.

Croatia topped host Turkey 70-62 in the second game of the day. Ersan Ilyasova scored 8 points on 2/6 fg, 2/3 3fg, 2/2 ft to go along with 3 rebounds and an assist in 20 minutes. The Damir Markota Experience played only 3 minutes and was scoreless with two rebounds.
