Yao Ming scored 36 points and Wang Shipeng made a 3-pointer as time expired to give China a 78-77 victory over Slovenia on Thursday (Aug 24th) to advance to the second round of the basketball world championship.

The Chinese (2-3) won their final two Group D games, and would be guaranteed to advance to the second round of the basketball world championship, whatever the results of the later game between Italy and Puerto Rico may be.

Sani Becirovic scored 20 points for Slovenia, which could have clinched a berth in the second round in its world championships debut, but instead was forced to wait with the Chinese for the results of the second game and hope a three-way tiebreaker worked out in its favor.

With four NBA players on its roster, Slovenia (2-3) was thought to be the second-best team behind the United States in Group D. But the Slovenians blew double-digit leads in two of their losses _ including a 14-point lead in this one. Slovenia will be out if the Puerto Rico beats Italy in a later game.
