Spain End On Positive Note
Spain finished fifth in the U18 European Championships after winning their final game 92-85 against last year’s champions France.

It may not be the same as winning the gold but the hosts still celebrated the victory quite emphatically with their fans after the game, despite the obvious disappointment of missing out on a medal after only losing one game all tournament.
