Hungary Down But Not Out
European basketball tournaments often throw up big surprises so don't for a minute think that 0-2 Hungary are dead in the water when it comes to having a chance of advancing to the Qualifying Round from Group B.

Even against a Poland side that is sky high after a late 62-60 victory over Greece, hope springs eternal for Hungary and their never-say-die coach Laszlo Ratgeber.
