Serbia managed a big upset today in the first Quarter-Finals of the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men with a 95-90 victory over Russia in overtime.
The Serbs were on the edge of elimination twice but won the last two games to make it to this stage.
Turkey put an end to their losing streak with a 78-67 win over Russia in Group E of the Qualifying Round of the Omnitel U16 European Championship Men.
This was the first loss for Russia in the tournament, after winning all their games by double-digit margins.
Russia is still on top of Group E in the Qualifying Round of the Omnitel U16 European Championship after another walk in the park, this time a 91-64 victory over Italy.
The Russians climb to a 4-0 record that guarantee them the top of the group even in case of a loss tomorrow to Turkey.

Following this win Russia stand on a 3-0 record while the losing side dropped to 1-2, but still very much alive in the race for the Quarter-Finals
