The Poles beat Lithuania 95-86 in the final game in Ostrowie Wielkopolski after getting 20 points from Sebastian Szymanski.

Giedrius Staniulis scored 14 points for the Lithuanians.

Norway finished third by defeating Belgium, 76-70.

Poland got off on the wrong foot in their opening game, falling hard to Belgium, 99-80.

The Belgians failed to build on that big win, however, losing 104-80 next time out against Lithuania.

The Norwegians, whose other results included a 62-52 defeat to Lithuania and a 54-52 setback to Poland, will have another three games coming up from July 2-4 when they take on Denmark, Great Britain and Sweden in Nyborg.

Lithuania are the only country playing in the U20 European Championship Division A in Croatia, while Poland, Belgium and Norway will take part in the Division B event in Austria.
