Italy advances to the Quarter-Finals for the first time since 1995 after defeating a turnover-afflicted Lithuania 72-58 in a game that had an unlikely hero arise for Giampiero Ticchi's squad.

The Italian coach had been insisting in recent games that his outside players be patient and look inside to their center Marte Alexander instead of basing all their chances of victory on their three-point shooting and drives into the lane.
