Hosts Greece overcame an injury to Vlantimir Giankovits and a feisty Belgium team to win 66-55 and remain perfect at the U18 European Championship Men.
Giankovits went out midway through the first quarter but Zisis Sarikopoulos picked up the slack with 16 points and 12 rebounds and Konstantinos Sloukas also had 16 points as Greece topped Group A.
Spain bounced back from their loss against Greece in Group A to handle Belgium 88-69 as four players scored in double figures.
Ivan Martinez Monumer led the way with 13 points and three of Spain's 10 three-pointers. Ignacio Llovet Camp and Toni Jaume Vicens each scored 11 points and Daniel Perez Otero had 10 points.
Maik Zirbes went for 22 points and 11 rebounds and Maurice Stuckey tallied 20 points as Germany surprised France 81-73 in Group C of the U18 European Championship for Men.
Germany also received 11 points each from Simon Schmitz and Jonas Wolfarth-Bottermann in knocking off the highly-touted French side in Amaliada.
