WROCLAW, September 25
Ukraine, who lost three of their first four qualifying games is headed to next summer's Eurobasket in Serbia & Montenegro after beating Hungary 77-70.
Hungary had won the first encounter between the two sides, 90-67, and were looking good bets to play in their first European Championships since 1969.
But the hosts played better this evening. And with Serhiy Lishchuk (20 points; 6/8 FG and 5/5 FT) they had the “man of the night” in their team.
