Hungary made things interesting in the fourth quarter but hosts Romania held on for a 62-58 win on day three of the U20 European Championship for Men Division B in Taru Mures.
Titus Nicoara had 19 points, 12 rebounds and four assists while also coming up with five steals in a game-winning effort for the Romanians, who improved to 2-0 after a day off for the four sides in Group D.
Constantin Ioan will this summer attempt to lead Romania to promotion in the U20 European Championship for Men.
The fans should give them a lift as the Romanians will be hosting the Division B tournament.
