The 1995 European Championship - An Interview with Sarunas Marciulionis
The final of the 1995 European Championship in Athens is widely regarded as one of the most exciting final games in recent history. As a spectacle for basketball fans, it had everything from the participation of 2 great basketball teams (Lithuania and Yugoslavia) to an outstanding individual performance (42 points from Alexander Djordevic on 9/12 3-point shooting) and generally contained all the ingredients that create a classic sports event.
