Greece's already-storied 1989-90 generation added another chapter to its legacy by defeating France 90-85 to capture the gold medal at the 2009 U20 European Championship.

Seven players including all five starters scored in double figures led by tournament MVP Kostas Papanikolaou's 15 points as the golden generation added Greece's first ever U20 gold to U18 gold in 2008 and silver from this month's U19 FIBA World Championship.
