Game for 7th place: Croatia vs Latvia
In a game where both sides were looking for a constellation win and taking the seventh place in EuroBasket 2001, the two teams preferred an uptempo style of play. However, neither team hit their shots, combining for 26% from the field (5/19 FG) when Latvia called a timeout with 05:33 remaining in the first period.
