Predrag Danilovic scored 19 points as Yugoslavia crushed South Korea 118-65 yesterday. Danilovic, who plays for the Miami Heat in the NBA, racked up 13 points in the first half as Yugoslavia scored almost at will.

Yugoslavia, who also start Vlade Divac, of the Charlotte Hornets, and Zarko Paspalj, who formerly played for the San Antonio Spurs, fielded their reserves for most of the second half.

Divac, 7ft 1in tall, finished with five points and eight rebounds, playing only 12 minutes, all in the first half. Yugoslavia have now won all three of their games.

Hyun Joo-Yeop scored 20 points for South Korea, who are not only short on victories - they have lost all three of their games - but also on players: just one man in their squad is over 6ft 5in tall.
