Division B Round-Up: Nordic Showdown Needs Overtime

Netherlands snatched victory from the jaws of defeat after twice blowing leads down the stretch to lose an overtime heartbreaker 71-73 against Denmark.

Leading 65-56 with four minutes of regulation left, they failed to score another bucket and even in overtime they still managed to make the same mistake again.
