Group C: Lithuania, Turkey Stay Unbeaten

Head coach Marius Linartas had not been impressed by his team’s offensive display in their win against Ukraine yesterday so his players made sure they rectified that aspect of their game as Lithuania defeated Portugal 117-36 at Ierapetra to remain unbeaten in Group C.

Lithuania had easily dispensed with Ukraine on the first day of the tournament but owed the win primarily to their ability to shut down the oppositions offense.
