Round-Up and Quarter-Final Report: Spain 101 Russia 81

Two teams from each preliminary round group will play tomorrow night in the Semi-finals of the U18 European Championship. Spain – Italy, France – Turkey. Three of the teams had a pretty easy job and won their games by 20 points or more. France put an end to the cinderela story of Israel with a 23 point win, Turkey eliminated Serbia & Montenegro with a 20 point win while Spain jumped over Russia with a 20 point win of its own. Italy was the only team that had to fight for its place in the Semi-finals, and it was one hell of a fight. It took an overtime and a last second missed shot by Greece to give the Italians a ride to the Semi-finals.
