A dismal first half from Bosnia and Herzegovina set the team up for a 77-51 blowout loss to Serbia, all but ending their chances of qualifying for the U18 European Championship quarter-finals.

Less than 24 hours after demolishing Russia by 45 points, the Serbians ran all over Bosnia and Herzegovina as all 12 players scored at least twice.

Serbia restricted their opponents to an 18% first-half shooting performance to take an incredible 45-16 lead into the half.

Bosnia and Herzegovina picked up in the second half, actually outscoring outscoring Serbia by three points, but were left to rue the missed opportunity with the damage already done.

Vasilije Vucetic led Serbia's balanced attack as the only player to reach double-digit scoring (10 points) while center Imran Polutak led Bosnia and Herzegovina with 16 points.
