FIBA WC: Toroman optimistic Gilas can beat Italy

“I think there’s a bigger chance to beat Italy than Serbia. Italy has two NBA players, (Marco) Belinelli who is a bit older and (Danilo) Gallinari, but they have some Euroleague players as well. But if I see some chance, that’s definitely Italy,” said Toroman via ESPN5.
