GAME REPORT


Russia Book Place In Quarter-Finals

Alexander Martynov (Russia)
Alexander Martynov and Russia are one of the first teams to stamp their entry to Arena Riga

Russia have booked a spot in the U18 European Championship quarter-finals with a 68-59 win over Lithuania on Tuesday night.

Lithuania cut a double-digit lead down to seven points early in the fourth before another powerful Russian run ended the short burst of excitement with a 14-6 run.

After a huge loss at the hands of Serbia on Monday night, Russia ended their streak of slow starts with an 11-0 run to start the game. Lithuania fought back into the game when the Russians suffered a stretch of poor shooting, but never led or came closer to the lead than a six-point differential late in the second period.

Viacheslav Fedorchenko led Russia with 21 points while Alexander Martynov impressed playing 37 minutes at point guard on a night in which their team shot 48% from the field.

Ricardas Verbickas topped Lithuania with 15 points.
