Serbia held off France 78-72 to be crowned champions of the U18 European Championship Men 2009 in Metz, France.
Serbia last won this tournament two years ago in Madrid, Spain and head coach Vladimir Jovanovic was elated - although at the same time at a loss for words - afterwards.
Turkey's Enes Kanter was named Most Valuable Player of the U18 European Championship Men 2009 in Metz, France.
The centre averaged 18.6 points and a tournament-best 16.4 rebounds in leading his team to a bronze medal performance.
Turkey used several scoring spurts in the middle quarters to pull away and eventually crush Lithuania 95-74 and take the bronze medal at the U18 European Championship Men 2009 in Metz, France.
The result went some way towards getting the Turks to forget their defeat against Serbia in the semi-final on Saturday.
