Serbia Celebrate Salvation By Routing Austria

U20 European Championship

Serbia kept their momentum on with a 101-47 win over Austria in the 13-16 Classification Round.

Following this win Serbia took a 5-0 record in the group, while having secured their spot in Division A already before the game.

The game didn't influence Austria's future either, as a win over Lithuania tomorrow is a necessity to avoid relegation.

Austria and Lithuania share a 2-3 record before their encounter tomorrow.

The loser will join Croatia on the train to Division B, while the winner will stick around the top stage for one more year.

In the previous game between the sides Lithuania won 91-68.

Considering the importance of today's game Austria chose to rest their top players as Anton Maresch and Thomas Klepeisz played only seven minutes each.

Nemanja Nedovic had 26 points for Serbia with just a single miss from the floor, while Danilo Andjusic added 23 with five three pointers.

Daniel Friedrich led Austria with 17 points.

It was a close game for one quarter, when Serbia held a 19-15 lead, but starting the second quarter it was total domination by the Serbs.

The final score didn't really make a real difference to any side.

The real battle of Austria is tomorrow.
