Greece made it two wins out of two at the U20 European Championship after easing past Estonia, 91-69, to join Russia at the top of Group B and book a place in the Qualification Round.

The Greeks opened up a double-digit lead already in the first quarter and cruised to an easy victory the rest of the way, outrebounding the Estonians 43-21.

Gianoulis Larentzakis and Anastasios Antonakis were the all-around leaders for Greece, as Larentzakis finished the game with 28 points, 10 rebounds and five assists and Antonakis scored 23 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out six assists.

For Estonia, Rannar Raap collected 13 points and Rait-Riivo Laane chipped in with 12 points and six assists, but they were never really in contention for the victory.

On Saturday, the Estonians will fight for the only remaining spot in the Qualification Round against Ukraine, with both sides yet to register a win

Meanwhile, Greece and Russia, both currently at 2-0, will meet to determine who tops the group.
