GAME REPORT


Spain Dominant In Win Against Turkey

Spain showed glimpses of perfection in their U20 European Championship opener in Domzale against Turkey, registering a 79-60 victory to join Latvia at the top of Group C.

The Spanish second-quarter performance was especially impressive.

They used an 11-0 run to break away from their opponents and gain a 45-30 lead behind much improved shooting percentages.

After going only 2-for-7 in the first quarter, the Spanish players hit 5-of-8 three-pointers in the second half.

Turkey did little to stop the productive fast break of Spain, who had 25 points off turnovers to Turkey's 10.

Daniel Diez led the way for the winners with 21 points, having scored 16 in the first half.

Alejandro Abrines finished the game with 13 points, as Alejandro Barrerra and Jaime Fernandez added 12 each, but the latter had to leave the court in the fourth quarter after twisting his ankle.

For Turkey, Safak Edge had a team-high 12 points, but the team lacked a bigger contribution off the bench with only 11 points coming from the second-unit players, while Spain's scored 21.

Spain will take on Latvia on Friday to see who can maintain an unbeaten record, while Turkey and Georgia will battle it out for a first win in Group C.
