Qualification tournaments serve by their very definition as a fleeting passage, an appetizer before the main course, and few people tend to remember the events that transpired in them once the big competition gets under way.
The EuroBasket 2015 2nd Qualifying Round concluded on Wednesday, with 13 teams securing their spot at next year's Final Round.
The Netherlands delivered an amazing defensive display on Wednesday to register a triumphant 68-55 win over Montenegro in a do-or-die clash and return to the EuroBasket for the first time since 1989.
The nine teams that will complete the EuroBasket 2015 field will be decided on Wednesday night, upon the conclusion of action in the 2nd Qualifying Round.
