Spain were not going to give away the chance of playing at the U19 World Championship and La Roja locked up the Latvian offense to dominate the game and come up with a convincing win.
Spain have qualified for the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship on account of defeating Latvia 80-51 in the fifth and sixth place classification game at the Samsung U18 European Championship.
It looked like a game that was going down to the wire until Latvia went on a 19-0 run in the fourth quarter to put all Bulgarian hopes to an end.
Latvia have confirmed a spot in Sunday's game to decide fifth and sixth place at the Samsung U18 European Championship, defeating Bulgaria 81-64.
