Lithuania caught fire from three-point range to win a Group E thriller against Turkey 67-61 and qualify for the quarter-finals of the EuroBasket Women.
Rima Valentiene, having missed her only shot from behind the arc through three quarters, connected on all four of her attempts in the final 10 minutes and Iveta Marcauskaite also made both of her long-range shots.
In a winners-take-all showdown, Lithuania face off with Turkey with a spot in the quarter-finals for the victors.
The 1997 title-holders Lithuania are looking to return to the final eight for the seventh time in the last eight competitions.
Just two days after knocking off the defending champions Czech Republic, Germany crashed back to reality, suffering a 76-63 loss to Turkey in Group E of the 2007 EuroBasket Women qualifying round.
Yasemin Horasan scored 18 points while Birsel Vardarli added 14 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals to lead a balanced Turkish attack.
Germany look to avoid a let-down after pulling off the upset of the 2007 EuroBasket Women so far against the Czech Republic, knowing they still have their backs to the wall with just a 1-2 record in the Group E qualifying round in Vasto.
Awaiting them will be a desperate Turkey side who are 0-3 and would be eliminated with another defeat.
