Andrei Kirilenko scored nine points, grabbed seven rebounds and handed out two assists during Russia's 79-58 victory over Belgium on Saturday.

Russia improved to 3-0 in Group D heading into Sunday's game against Bulgaria.

Meanwhile, Kyrylo Fesenko scored five points, grabbed three rebounds and even made a free throw in Ukraine's 67-56 win over Bulgaria -- its first EuroBasket victory in 10 years.

Fesenko played only 10 minutes. He scored his five points during the opening moments of the fourth quarter. His three-point play gave his team a 56-38 lead. He followed with a dunk that made it 58-40.

Ukraine, 1-2 in Group D, plays Georgia on Sunday in a game critical to both teams' knockout round hopes.

Also Sunday, Jazz rookie Enes Kanter and his teammates from Turkey will play Poland in Group A.
