GAME REPORT


Croatia Hold Off Turkey

Croatia's early run helped them beat Turkey 67-58 to go level with their opponents on 1-1 behind Russia in Group E of the Termosteps U16 European Championship.

The Croatians scored the game's first 10 points and never trailed, leading 23-6 at the end of the first quarter and 40-20 at the half.

However, Turkey deserve credit for battling back and Ibrahim Yildirim's three-pointer brought them within four with 2:50 remaining in the game.

Goran Fodor replied with a three-pointer of his own to make sure Croatia held on, and he finished with a game-high 22 points.

Team-mate Sven Smajlagic had 21 points and 10 rebounds, while Mario Delas - the only other player in double-digits for the winners - also enjoyed a double-double with 11 points and 19 rebounds.

Teoman Orge top-scored for Turkey with 17 points while Yildirim finished with 10.
