Bo McCalebb leads Macedonia

SIAULIAI, Lithuania -- Bo McCalebb, born and raised in New Orleans, scored 27 points Saturday to lead Macedonia to a 72-58 upset of Greece at the European Championship.

Antonis Fotsis scored 16 points and Ioannis Bourousis added 10 points and 10 rebounds for Greece, which fell apart in the fourth quarter. Both teams are 2-1 in Group C.

Macedonia nearly squandered its eight-point lead before going on an 11-0 run early in the fourth quarter.

"Obviously, we played terrible," said Nikos Zisis, who had nine points and eight rebounds for Greece. "The coach told us that Macedonia was going to play with a lot of passion, with a lot of heart and I think that was the main reason why they won this game."

Finland won its first game at a European Championship since 1977 when it beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 92-64, capitalizing on Mikko Koivisto's 17 points and a 34-18 third quarter.

Slovenia (3-0) topped Georgia 87-75, and Russia (3-0) took winless Belgium 79-58 in Group D.

Croatia, which had lost to Macedonia in the previous game, needed to bounce back against another former Yugoslav republic and did that against Montenegro (1-2).

Marko Popovic scored 23 points for Croatia, including a pair of free throws with five seconds left. Tomic made a layup with 1:09 remaining to make it 82-77 and put the game away.

Dontaye Draper had 12 assists and nine points for Croatia. Goran Jeretin led Montenegro with 18 points and Vladimir Dragicevic added 17.

Finland overcame a 25-point performance from Henry Domercant, the only effective player for a sloppy Bosnian team.

Jaka Lakovic led Slovenia with 22 points to match Georgia's Zaza Pachouli of the Atlanta Hawks. Lakovic nailed a 3-pointer with 3:18 remaining to put Slovenia up 73-65, and his team was never threatened again. Sasa Ozbolt had 21 points for Slovenia.
