|Marek Zywert was firing on all clyinders, pouring in 22 points in Poland's win over Germany|
A second quarter explosion has provided Poland with an 80-63 win over Germany in the second round of the Dadu U16 European Championship Men.
Trailing by six points with a little under four minutes gone in the second frame, Poland changed the dynamics of the game, going on a 25-4 run in the lead up to the half to be in a complete control when the buzzer sounded.
Germany's cause was not helped by star player Jan Wimberg having an off-night, picking up just two points in the opening half, seeing coach Harald Stein limit the power forward's playing time.
Germany have scored just 10 three-pointers in their opening three games thus far in Lithuania, and despite trailing by 15, continued to look inside the paint for scoring options, allowing Poland to maintain their buffer for the second half.
Poland finished with 21 points from beyond the arc compared to three from Germany.
Marek Zywert lead all scoring with 22 points. Filip Pruefer chipped in with 14 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.
On account of a big final quarter, Wimberg eventually managed a team-high 14 points.
On Tuesday Germany take on Greece and Poland tackle hosts, Lithuania.
