Politically tragic basketball games

Serbia and Montenegro [sic] 104, Lebanon 57.

That is from the ongoing FIBA World Championship series.  The USA just whupped China and the US team has been running at about 63-70 percent in the betting markets, despite winning only a bronze medal in the Olympics.  This time they are taking international rules seriously, playing defense, and investing in role players, or so we are told.  Spain, Argentina, and Greece are the major rivals.  At least we edged out Puerto Rico, 111-100, which in per capita terms has to count as a loss.
