Lithuania 99 Czech Republic 72

After 2 surprises in the quarter-finals, form was finally obeyed in the match-up between Lithuania and Czech Republic.

The Czechs have done an excellent job in reaching the quarter-finals, but the task of beating the Lithuanians proved to be insurmountable.

We Have Team Spirit - Czech Republic Coach Frantisek Ron
For decades the basketball scene in Czechoslovakia was one of the best in Europe. They won medals, and took part in almost every national team competition around. In the last decade, and while becoming an independent country, the Czech Republic has gradually slipped from center stage.

Interview With Czech Republic's Talent David Steffel
After two days in the U20 European championship there’s no doubt which is the most surprising team. The Czech Republic participated only once in the U20 championship and but finished last with only one win. Despite having a player in the NBA, Czech basketball doesn’t have a big tradition in recent years, and nobody gave them much of a chance to do anything in this championship either. True, the Czechs are here as the host team, and it is doubtful that they would have made it here through the qualifying round, but with a lot of hard work and team effort they have earned enough respect already after two days.
