Gentile, Italy Down Slovenia, Dream Of Quarter-Finals

Star man Alessandro Gentile has admitted anger at losing badly to Spain was the motivation for an impressive 80-65 win for Italy over Slovenia as the Azzurri breathed life back into their campaign at the U20 European Championship Men 2010 in Croatia.

Speaking after he recorded a game-high 22 points in Makarska, Gentile was already thinking ahead - both hoping and preparing himself for the possibility of a quarter final place and monumental challenge against defending champions Greece.
Spain Leave It Late Against Italy

Forward Ignacio Llovet produced more magic in Makarska with a sensational 18 points and 15 rebounds at the U20 European Championship Men 2010 as Spain continued their momentum in the tournament to trounce Italy by 78-56.

Llovet has really lit it up in Croatia and this was his best performance yet although perhaps the final margin flattered Spain a little who had found themselves 34-33 behind heading onto the locker room at half-time - despite leading by fourteen points early in the game.
