Spain Win Thriller Over Latvia

Spain won the U18 European Championship Men title in 2004 and they are off to a winning start in the tournament one year later after edging Latvia 84-82 on the first day of games in Belgrade.

The Spaniards rode their luck as Latvia missed a potential game-tying jump shot with three seconds to play.
