Quarter-Final Report: Italy 75 Greece 74 (OT)

Yet another thriller, yet another overtime, second of the day and first of the quarter-finals.

Italy, coming from the 1st place in group A faced the 4th from group B – Greece. A classic battle between two very talented teams, decided after overtime in favour of the Italian side. The Italians came very close to losing and survived only thanks to two misses by Greece in the last possession of regulation and the last one of overtime.

Interview: Ntousan Sakota, Greece
The last team to catch a quarter-final berth was Greece. The team that camer to Zaragoza as one of the favorites in the pre-Championship predictions fell to last place in Group B the day before the last game, with only one win out of four games. Greece couldn't then depend on its own anymore. It had one main wish – to beat Lithuania, if possible by 7 points or more, and hope for a win of Israel and Turkey. If you missed the news, that’s exactly what took place here in the last day of the preliminary round. After Euro2004, a miracle is a routine for Greece.
