Israel and Greece can rest easy after ensuring their spot in the Division A for the next year thanks to two wins in the first two games of the Classification Round in the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men on Wednesday.
Ukraine and the Czech Republic are the two teams to be relegated to Division B.
Israel and Greece made their first step towards remaining in Division A after winning the debut game in the 13-16 Classification Round.
Greece wrote a big 82-46 point win over the Czech Republic that could turn out crucial in their favor in case the goal differences will decide the fate of the teams.
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.
France wrote a key 90-76 victory over Latvia on the second day of Group D to remain the only team in the group with a perfect record.
Yet another impressive offensive performance by a very athletic French team that held a nine point lead already at the break, on the way to a win that secures their spot in the Qualifying Round.
