For the third time ever Spain has won the bronze medal in the U20 European Championship Men after a 91-72 victory over Turkey on Sunday night in Riga.
This generation of Spain also won the bronze medal two years ago in the 2006 U18 European Championship.
Serbia will get a chance to defend their title tomorrow night in the finals of the 2008 U20 European Championship Men after a 90-69 win over Turkey in the first semi-final.
The European and World champs took control over the game right from the start, using their size advantage.
Turkey is the first team to make it to the semi-finals of the tournament after a 63-60 win over Croatia in Group E.
The win lifted Turkey to a 4-1 record and they will wait to see who they will face on the way to the finals.
Turkey made a giant step towards the semi-finals with a key 84-80 win over so far perfect Lithuania.
The win puts Turkey on top and secures them a semi-finals ticket in case of a three-way tie.
