Turkey Top Estonia

Turkey beat Estonia 84-58 in the first game in Group E today to secure themselves at least fourth place in the group behind France.

The fatigue of having played six games in seven days seemed to have caught up with the teams as the game moved at a snail’s pace at times.

Latvia Continue Run

The surprise run of the tournament hasn’t lost it legs as Latvia won their fifth game of the tournament against Turkey with a 73-68 victory which came down to the dying seconds.

After Turkey started brightly the game turned into a contest in the second quarter and was more or less tied from three minutes before half-time until the very final seconds, with neither side able to pull away until Can Özcan missed a three pointer for Turkey with two seconds left and the score at 71-68 to Latvia
