TOKUSHIMA (FIBA Asia Championship) - Korea carved out a clinical victory against Syria at the Municipal Gym to keep their slate clean.
Spearhead Ha Seung-Jin was used only sparsely, but in the time he was on the court, the Milwaukee Bucks center wreaked enough havoc, scoring 16 points and collecting a staggering 12 rebounds, to dent the rivals' morale.
Kim Joo-Sung looked stylish, while top scoring the game, to provide the necessary support to Ha.
Korea 89 (Kim Joo-Sung 17, Ha Seung-Jin 16, Daniel Robert Sandrin 12) bt Syria 79 (Mohamad Alsaman 20, Micheal Madanly 16). Quarterwise: 27-17, 47-34, 75-52.
