Dimitrios Stamatis was pivotal once again for Greece, scoring 19 points

Greece have claimed revenge over Bosnia and Herzegovina, making up for a First Round shock loss to them with a commanding 63-36 victory in their classification game for 9th to 16th place on Friday night.

The Greeks won their fourth straight game after an unlucky First Round elimination - in no small part because of their earlier loss to Friday's opponents - while Bosnia and Herzegovina must win tomorrow's 13th to 16th place classification game in order to avoid relegation to Division B.

Dimitrios Stamatis had a nine-point opening term, but it was the second quarter when Greece really did their damage. Holding Bosnia and Herzegovina to just seven points on 2-for-13 shooting, the Greeks increased their points in the paint tally to 24 as the lead hit 20 points.

Despite Bosnia and Herzegovina matching Greece in most of the statistical categories, the blowout reached 29 points.

Both teams combined to shoot 2-for-29 from three and commit 39 turnovers.


Stamatis led Greece with 19 points while Imran Polutak topped Bosnia and Herzegovina with eight points.
