Latvia swept aside Greece 65-36 on Sunday to capture the bronze medal at the A.C.I. Trading Limited U20 European Championship Women in Brno.
Playing less than 24 hours after their heartbreaking 55-53 semi-final defeat to Poland, the Baltic country were able to take some of the sting out of that setback by finishing the tournament in third place, and it was an 11-2 Latvia run late in the first quarter that served as the launchpad for victory.
Poland survived a major scare against Latvia on Saturday to book their place in the final of the A.C.I. Trading Limited U20 European Championship Women in Brno.
Poland prevailed 55-53 but only after their Baltic opponents failed to cash in on chances to pull level at the end.
