Serbia & Montenegro will go into the semi-finals of the Umcor U18 European Championship Women on Saturday as the gold medal favourite.
Unbeaten in five games so far, Serbia & Montenegro completed quarter-final round play on Thursday with a 76-49 defeat against Lithuania.
Lithuania kept their hopes of reaching the semi-finals alive at the Umcor European Championship U18 Women in Tenerife on Wednesday with an 83-60 win against Bulgaria.
After an anaemic shooting display against Sweden on Tuesday (20% from the field), the Lithuanians rediscovered their touch against Bulgaria, netting 50% from two-point range and 81% from the free throw line.
Sweden's dream start to the Umcor U18 European Championship Women continued on Tuesday as they kept their 100% record alive with a win over Lithuania.
It took Sweden a while to find their rhythm, especially at the offensive end, but a 10-3 run in the closing minutes eventually ended Lithuania's challenge.
France became the first team to book a spot in the quarter-final round after a 65-73 win against Lithuania at the Umcor European Championship U18 Women in Tenerife on Sunday.
Despite the loss, Lithuania also advance to the next round.
