|Samuel Deguara was once again an indomitable force for Malta|
Guard Darryl Jackson and giant center Samuel Deguara were instrumental again in securing Malta's win. Deguara had a double-double, adding 13 rebounds to 21 points scored on 10-of-12 shooting, as the Maltese team shot 57% from the field overall.
Jackson top-scored with 23 points, and Michael Naudi added 19 for Malta, who ended the first quarter with a 10-3 run and didn't trail thereafter, with Deguara's tough shot inside extending the lead to 12 points by half-time.
San Marino were unable to launch a second-half comeback as they shot less than 36% in the match, with Malta dominating the boards also. 18-year-old guard Julian Gualtieri has often been a bright spark for San Marino in this tournament, and he led them in this match with 14 points.
Andorra opened their semi-final against Scotland with a 22-2 run to take control. Guillem Colom notched 11 of his game-high 21 points in the brisk opening, and although the Scottish team were able to close out the quarter on a 13-2 run to bring the deficit below 10, they were always playing catch-up and didn't get any closer than six.
Back-to-back three-pointers from Oriol Fernandez and Esteve Malet Salto pushed the lead to 69-45 by the end of the third quarter to extinguish any lingering Scottish hopes. Cinto Gabriel ended with 14 points for Andorra, who beat Moldova in the 2012 final.
