Scotland, Andorra, Cyprus Get Second Win

Cyprus recorded another huge win on day two of the U16 European Championship for Men Division C as they routed Gibraltar 123-34.

That improved on their 114-43 thrashing of San Marino on the opening day as they lay down a huge early marker in the competition. 

Cyprus outscored their opponents 38-2 in the opening quarter of a game that was never a contest.

Dimitris Aristototelous led six Cypriots scoring in double figures as he poured in 24. 

James Quigley was the only Gibraltar player to reach double figures with 11. 

Tuesday's other Group B game saw San Marino bounce back from their loss to Cyprus by beating Malta 68-51 as Julian Gulatieri scored 28 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. 

San Marino led 38-18 by half-time, and although Malta rallied in the second half, the damage was already done. 

However, Malta retain second place behind Cyprus in the group due to San Marino's inferior points differential.

Scotland have moved top of Group A with a 79-46 victory over Wales in the all-British clash. 

Michael Secker scored 15 points to lead four Scots scoring in double figures. 

The Scots lead the group from Andorra, who were 81-33 victors over the Principality of Monaco, thanks in large part to the efforts of Pau Auge Gracia who had 16 points and nine rebounds.
