Jorge Sanz and MVP Alejandro Abrines Redondo combined for 38 points as Spain held off determined Serbia 71-65 to capture Spain's third U18 European Championhip Men title in 13 years.
There must be something about Serbia-Spain finals on Polish soil. In 2009 the two countries contested the EuroBasket title in Katowice. Two years later in Wroclaw they square off for the gold medal at the U18 European Championship Men.
Nenad Miljenovic scored 20 points as Serbia came back from a 16-point deficit to beat Italy 67-60 to advance to the final of the U18 European Championship and go for their third title in five years.
Making their first semi-final since taking bronze in 2005, Italy look to continue their magical run at the U18 European Championship as they take on Serbia - winners of three titles in the past five years.
