European champions Russia ended a two-game losing streak with an 86-69 mauling of Serbia & Montenegro in Izmir.
Igor Grudin's team, stung by losses to Spain and Lithuania, hit back in grand style with a battling victory which they needed in order to ensure qualification to the quarter-finals.
Spain brushed aside Serbia & Montenegro in Izmir for their third successive triumph at the EuroBasket Women.
Once again it was the Amaya Valdemoro show as the veteran forward poured in 26 points and pulled down six rebounds while also handing out six assists to propel her side to a 60-52 win.
Serbia & Montenegro have bounced back following their opening defeat by winning consecutive games after Sunday's 63-50 triumph over Romania in Izmir.
An upset looked to be on the cards when Romania went on a 19-3 run to lead 41-38 with a minute to go in the third quarter.
Serbia & Montenegro suffered a late collapse but held on to beat Lithuania 77-74 on the second day of the EuroBasket Women in Turkey.
Playing in Izmir where all of the Group B contests are being staged, solid performances from Lithuanians Sandra Valuzyte and Egle Sulciute were not enough for the Baltic side to claim a second consecutive triumph following their opening victory against Spain.
