Domantas Sabonis was once more a formiddable force under the baskets at both ends of the court for Lithuania

Bosnia and Herzegovina finished the Second Round of the U18 European Championship winless, losing to Lithuania 78-60 on Wednesday.

Neither side took the match-up lightly despite there being little at stake for either team - Lithuania were already assured of a position in the quarter-finals and Bosnia and Herzegovina headed to the classification stages after consecutive double-digit losses.

Another impressive outside shooting performance coupled with some bruising inside play from Domantas Sabonis allowed Lithuania to jump out to a double-figure first half lead.

Bosnia and Herzegovina threatened to cut the lead back below 10 on a number of occasions in the third term, but Lithuania's bench was able to respond each time with clutch plays.

Lithuania shot 50% from the field, made 10-of-23 three-point attempts and scored 21 fast-break points. Sabonis scored 14 points and collected 10 rebounds.

Imran Polutak scored 17 points and Sandro Gacic added 14, but the two committed 10 of Bosnia and Herzegovina's 22 turnovers.
