Serbia bounced back from back-to-back losses with a 94-65 win over Germany in Group F of the Qualifying Round in the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men.
The boys from the Balkans dominated the game from the start and held a 20 point lead at the break, 54-34, which was enough to write their first win in the group after a two point aching loss yesterday.
Germany dropped to 0-4, while Serbia climbed to 1-3 before the last day of this round.
Nemanja Bezbradica wrote his second double-double in a row with 19 points and 12 rebounds, Nenad Miljenovic kept his good performances going with 18 points on 80% shooting from the field and Nikola Pavlovic had 14 points with five steals.
Paul Albrecht collected 15 points for Germany, while Jakob Krumbeck had 11 points.
Germany took the lead in the first minutes, but Bezbradica on the inside and Miljenovic with his jumpers set a double-digit Serbian lead, 24-14 after ten minutes.
There was no answer in Germany's defense for Bezbradica who scored 13 in the first half.
The Serbian guards continued to pressure full court as the gap increased to 40-18 and if Germany didn't have Albrecht to score their last nine points before the break, the gap would have been bigger than 20 at the break.
Miljenovic and Nikola Pavlovic continued to be too much for the German team who turned the ball over 26 times during the game.
The margin already reached 33 points close to the final buzzer as Germany suffered another big defeat.
