The Czechs proved again that they are a solid team with a road win

Tomas Satoransky scored 21 points and dished six assists, Jaromir Bohacik had 23, and the Czech Republic beat South Korea in Seoul by 12 points (97-89) in a preparation contest for the upcoming FIBA World Cup.

The game, however, was more than comfortable and the final score flatters the hosts.

Thanks to a partial 30-14, the Czechs got a 56-30 halftime lead and only when they relaxed in the last quarter, Korea had the chance to get close.

Naturalized forward Ricardo Ratliffe with 29 points and 17 rebounds was a one-man front line for Korea, but he was not enough.
