Greece Bring Home Seventh Place

Quarter final losers Greece and Czech Republic fought it out for seventh spot and it was Greece who emerged the victorious with a hard fought 59-54 win.

Greece had been in control of the game during the first half and found themselves 28-23 in front at the break.

24 Seconds With Tereza Vyoralova

The Czech Republic have proven to be one of the surprise teams in Napoli having shrugged off successive losses on days one and two of the tournament to turn things around and secure an unlikely quarter-final spot.

While their fairytale run towards next years World U17 Championships and even a medal has now ended, FIBA Europe caught up with star guard Tereza Vyoralova for 24 seconds.
