Italy decimated Angola in the second day of Group C (92-61) and came one step away from its qualification for the second round.
Four players scored in double figures for the winners, with Marco Belinelli leading the way with 17 points. Yanick Moreira had a team-high 15 points for the losing squad.
The Italians took control from the opening tip and led from start to finish (25-11, 44-21). Angola never recovered and suffered its second straight loss.
If Serbia beats the Philippines later today, both the Italians and the Serbians will officially advance to the second round.
