Serbia are the 2008 U20 European Championship Men gold medallists after a 96-89 win over Lithuania in a finals game that will be marked as one of the best in recent years.
This is the third year in a row Serbia are crowned in this competition but it came as no surprise.
Miroslav Raduljica of Serbia was named the MVP of the 2008 U20 European Championship Men in Riga, after leading his team to yet another gold medal.
The 210cm center dominated the championship from the first to the last day. He finished the games with a double-double average of 18.6 ppg and 10.9 rpg with a total of five games with double-double including the grand finals.
It all comes down to this.
Serbia and Lithuania will meet on Sunday to determine who will take home the gold medal of the U20 European Championship Men in Riga. One last preview of today's big match-up and some thoughts on semi-final Saturday.
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.
