Serbia stretched their winning streak at the U20 European Championship to five games with an 86-69 victory over Greece to secure first place in Group E and the top seed for the Quarter-Finals from their side of the draw.

With Greece holding on tight through the first half, Serbia broke away in the beginning of the third quarter, courtesy of a 15-0 run.

The Serbians used their height advantage to perfection, outrebounding Greece 43-19.

Nenad Miljenovic led the winners with 16 points, Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 15 points and dished out six assists, while Luka Mitrovic added a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Anastasios Antonakis had a game-high 21 points for Greece, while Giannoulis Larentzakis scored 16 points in a losing effort.

With Serbia already guaranteed top spot in Group E, their last game against Russia serves only to extend their impressive streak further.

Things are different for Greece however, who must now defeat France to make the quarter-finals.
