Spain’s Sergio Llull shots past Argentina’s Tayavek Gallizzi during the Basketball World Cup final.

BEIJING: Spain beat Argentina 95-75 to win the Fiba Basketball World Cup for the first time since 2006 on Sunday, completing a stunning campaign for a squad considered among the rank outsiders when the 32-team tournament began. The Spaniards scored first and never relinquished the lead, relying on swarming interior defence and superior rebounding to snuff out the offensive threat of 2004 Olympic champions Argentina.

Point guard Ricky Rubio racked up 20 points and three assists and Marc Gasol and Willy Hernangomez swatted three shots each as Spain pulled down 47 rebounds, 20 more than Argentina, en route to a comprehensive victory. Earlier in the day, Nando De Colo netted 19 points as France took their second consecutive World Cup bronze medal with a 67-59 win over Australia.
