Latvia missed a big chance to secure a spot in the Quarter-Finals on Wednesday after a 69-63 loss to Germany on the last day of the Qualifying Round In Group F of the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men.
A win would have given Latvia the sure ticket for the top eight teams.
Latvia pulled of a shocking 85-58 win over Spain in Group F of the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men to move a step closer to the Quarter-Finals.
For Spain it was their first loss, and dropped them to 3-1. Latvia are now at 2-2 and with a win over the winless Germans tomorrow they'll be in the top eight teams.
Croatia are aiming high after a big 84-56 one-sided win over Latvia in Group F of the Qualifying Round in the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men.
This win ships Croatia on a 2-1 record cruise while Latvia have the opposite record of 1-2.
France finished Group D with a third win Saturday, and a rather easy one at that, 81-40 over Ukraine.
This win lifts France to a perfect 3-0 record on top of the group, while Ukraine will play the 13-16 relegation games after losing all three games in the group.
