Nesterovic Leads Slovenia To Win in FIBA Qualifier

Rasho Nesterovic won't be on hand Wednesday when the Pacers formally introduce the players brought in via trade a few weeks ago, but he has a great excuse. He's busy leading the Slovenian national team in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

Slovenia beat Korea, 88-76 in their first game, led by Rasho's 26 points and 9 rebounds. According to this report, Rasho will retire from the Slovenian team after this Olympic run.

Instead of having Rasho take questions from the media, they can just show some highlihgts of his play this week. Much better intro to the city.

The Pacers' second round draft pick last year, Stanko Barac, is also involved in the FIBA tournament, playing a reserve role for Croatia. Barac scored 2 points and grabbed 2 rebounds in 9 minutes of burn as Croatia beat Cameroon, 93-79

The tournament's preliminary round continues tomorrow with Slovenia taking on Canada. Croatia plays again on Wednesday against Puerto Rico.
