Interview With Latvia's Gatis Jahovics

Latvia clinched the 4th spot in Group A with a 2-3 record and made it to the quarter-finals. The wins over Croatia and Spain were crucial and gave Latvia the advantage in the tie-breakers, but last night against Greece the Latvian journey came to an end. For Gatis Jahovics, the leading star of the Latvian team, making it to the quarter-finals is considered a success for the Latvian team, especially with their big man, Kasparas Berzins, sitting out due to an injury in the last 3 games.
