Poland ground out a 60-53 win over Hungary in Liepaja on Tuesday to seal a place in the Qualifying Round of the EuroBasket Women.
Beaten like a drum in their opening game by hosts Latvia, the Poles bounced back to win two close games, including Monday's late 62-60 triumph over Greece.
European basketball tournaments often throw up big surprises so don't for a minute think that 0-2 Hungary are dead in the water when it comes to having a chance of advancing to the Qualifying Round from Group B.
Even against a Poland side that is sky high after a late 62-60 victory over Greece, hope springs eternal for Hungary and their never-say-die coach Laszlo Ratgeber.
Latvia rode their incredible home-court advantage to another victory at the EuroBasket Women on Monday.
Taking on a determined Hungary, the Latvians got strong performances from the two-headed monster of Anete Jekabsone-Zogota and Zane Tamane and prevailed 76-59.
There was plenty of exciting action on day one of EuroBasket Women 2009 in Latvia.
The home team brought fans to their feet numerous times in Liepaja as they thumped Poland 86-52 behind 20 points from Anete Jekabsone-Zogota and 18 from sparkplug Gunta Basko.
