Montenegro Finish In Fine Fashion, Await Fate

Montenegro are still alive and kicking at the U20 European Championship Men 2010 after they signed off the Qualification Round with a 70-57 win against Latvia but now face an anxious wait to see if result go in their favour and hand them a quarter-final place in Zadar.

Having looked like their chances of a quarter-final spot might have gone yesterday afternoon after a gut-wrenching overtime loss to Greece, results went their way last night and they certainly capitalised on their unexpected second chance with this impressive victory.

Lithuania Sing The Blaus Against Latvia

A sparkling 19 points and 11 rebounds by center Lauris Blaus powered Latvia to a 75-72 win over neighbours Lithuania and in the process helped blow Group E of the Qualifying Round of U20 European Championship for men wide open.

The performance of Latvia was something of a surprise since their under-par display in their previous game with Serbia had left their hopes of a quarter-final place hanging by a thread but they can now head into the final day in Crikvenica with real purpose.

Serbia Clear Latvia Hurdle But Fail To Impress

Serbia shrugged off a second half wobble against Latvia at the U20 European Championship Men 2010 in Crikvenica to take the honours 70-57 - although the performance was far from slick.

Point guard Nemanja Nedovic led his team with his best score to date in the competition of sixteen points while center Dejan Musli missed out on a double-double by one rebound after recording 14 points.
