Sweden will keep their Division A status in 2007 thanks to their victory over the Netherlands in the relegation tournament on Monday night in Novi Sad.
The Swedes beat Poland on Sunday and kept up their good form to defeat the Netherlands 78-65 just one day later.
Sweden took the first step towards keeping their Division A status until 2007 with victory over Poland at the relegation tournament in Novi Sad on Sunday night.
The tournament, which features Sweden, Poland and the Netherlands, will determine the two teams which will be relegated to Division B, as only the winner will get to stay in Division A.

Flevarakis, a 36-year-old Greek, took over from Jan Enjebo as Swedish national coach in May following an unsuccessful qualifying campaign for next month's tournament which saw the Scandinavian outfit lose all four games to opponents Russia and Croatia.
The new man at the helm of Sweden's national basketball team, Kostas Flevarakis, is not a miracle worker.
"I don't give big promises or big words," Flevarakis said to PA International.
