The Principality of Monaco and Scotland on Saturday booked places in the Final of the U16 European Championship for Men Division C.

Both sides claimed convincing wins, with the Scots thumping San Marino 72-32 and Monaco routing hosts Gibraltar, 78-37.

Scotland raced into a big first-half lead and there was no way back for San Marino.

At the break, the Scots had a 40-16 advantage.

Rian Neill had 11 points and Malcolm Winning nine at the interval for Scotland.

Fraser Malcolm finished with 13 points and nine rebounds for Scotland and Neill had 12 points.

Gregor Gray added nine points and seven boards in the triumph.

The Principality of Monaco put the result beyond doubt very early against Gibraltar, outscoring them 26-3 in the first quarter.

Alessandro Generale continued his fine play for Monaco with 20 points and 11 rebounds in their victory.

Roger Curet Valero had 20 points and nine rebounds as Andorra rolled to an 84-65 victory over Wales earlier in the day.
