Montenegro will get a chance to fight for the fifth spot tomorrow after an easy 90-53 win over Ukraine in the 5-8 classification games.
Montenegro will take on Italy trying to capture fifth place, while Ukraine will fight for the seventh spot against France.
Vladimir Dasic was the top scorer of the game with 31 points after connecting on 27 already in the first half, while Sead Sehovic added 19 points.
Denys Lukashov scored 12 points for Ukraine.
Already after one quarter Dasic showed his dominance when he scored just one point less than the entire opponent team carrying his team to a 27-16 first quarter lead.
Dasic started the second quarter with a dunk and continued to collect points.
Sehovic, in a very good game himself, climbed to double-digits as the teams marched to the break separated by 18, 47-29, with Dasic up to 27 points already.
Montenegro only continued to increase the margin, putting pressure on the ball and forcing more and more turnovers on the Ukrainian side.
Dasic got his rest time before tomorrow's game, as the sides surfed to the final buzzer.
