Comeback kings Serbia are the UMCOR U18 European Champions.
Down by 16 points in the second quarter, Serbia fought back and ultimately wore down an excellent Greek side to complete a clean sweep of gold medals in youth tournaments this summer.
Spain finished fifth in the U18 European Championships after winning their final game 92-85 against last year’s champions France.
It may not be the same as winning the gold but the hosts still celebrated the victory quite emphatically with their fans after the game, despite the obvious disappointment of missing out on a medal after only losing one game all tournament.
And so, as all good things must come to an end, so too must this year’s UMCOR U18 European Championships Men in Madrid.
It’s been another good year, and while some things came as no surprise – such as Serbia’s charge to the final, their third of the summer at European youth levels – there were other things that people may not have seen coming, like Latvia’s long unbeaten run and Estonia’s qualification from their group at Italy’s expense.
