Classification Games: 9th - 12th Place

Finland 97 Spain 99 (Double OT)
Although not much was expected of the first game in the classification round, the few spectators who made it for the 8:45 start were treated to a double-overtime thriller. Spain eventually overcame Finland by a narrow 2-point margin, the game nearly heading into a third extra period.

Finland 49 – Russia 81
Thanks to Russia’s loss yesterday to Ukraine, this game was do-or-die for both teams as a win handed the victor the last Quarter-Final place from Group A. Finland were still on an up after a great show against Slovak Republic but after the first 10 minutes today already started to look a little tired. Russia, however, looked in great shape, the key players having not played a lot of minutes against Ukraine.
