Serbia Hold Off France To Win Title

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 Run Away With Bronze Medal Game

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.
