Back-to-back three-pointers from Danilo Andjusic and Marko Keselj early in the second quarter made it 38-18 as Serbia asserted total control.
When Dejan Musli made a lay-up midway through the third period the lead was 60-35 and the lead hit 29, 70-41, on a three-point play from Musli to end the quarter.
Milos Teodosic and Nenad Krstic had 12 points each for Serbia with Andjusic adding 11.
