It was an eventful final day at the U20 European Championship Men 2010 in Croatia and not just because of the fight to get a podium place.
The nerves were jangling ahead of the main event in the Relegation Round as Turkey, Netherlands and Germany fought for their Division A lives.
The fight for survival at the U20 European Championship Men 2010 in Croatia is still in full swing heading into the final day of action in the Relegation Round.
While Czech Republic have already dropped straight back to Division B after having only achieved promotion last summer, it's all still to be decided for Netherlands, Germany and Turkey.
There are few players with more to gain or lose at this year's U20 European Championship for Men in Croatia than Maurice Stuckey.
The German guard is the property of recently crowned German play-off champions Brose Baskets and is hoping a strong performance in the tournament can help book his place on the bench next season.
Slovenia injected some serious life into their U20 European Championship Men 2010 campaign and simultaneously delivered a killer blow to Germany in the process who were dumped into the Relegation Round after going into meltdown mode.
This overwhelming 75-54 victory was a major success for Slovenia who had been drinking in the last chance saloon but can now raise a glass to toast their first success in Makarska.
