Hosts San Marino stormed back in the third quarter to beat Wales 80-73 and booked a place in the U16 European Championship Men Division C Final against Andorra.

San Marino found themselves down by five, 33-28, at half-time, but used a 12-0 run - capped by Julian Gualtieri's three-pointer, to power their way into the lead.

Wales stayed close and twice tied the game in the fourth quarter, but San Marino edged away to take the win, thanks mainly to another huge game from Gaultieri as he finished with 40 points and 15 rebounds.

Andorra cruised into the final as they overpowered Malta 76-49 behind 30 points from Jordi Moline.

Andorra held a 38-20 lead by half-time and never game Malta a sniff of a chance, despite the best efforts of Aaron Falzon, who came up with 24 points and 22 rebounds but shot a disappointing eight of 23 (34%) from the field.
