MADRID - Dark horses Serbia powered into the basketball World Cup final and will meet holders United States after beating European champions France 90-85 on Friday. An inspired performance by Milos Teodosic lifted the Serbs as the 27-year old playmaker nailed 24 points, 18 of them in the first half when his team built a 46-32 lead. France headed into the clash as favourites after stunning hosts Spain in the quarter-finals but were overran in the opening half by a fast-flowing Serbian outfit who engineered plenty of easy baskets. Teodosic nailed seven of eight shots from the field and also dished our four telling assists converted by centre Miroslav Raduljica, whose physical presence stifled out an athletic French team. France will meet Lithuania in the bronze medal game.–Reuters
