Andorra have won the U16 European Championship Men Division C crown with an 84-70 win over hosts San Marino.

The heroics of Julian Gualtieri were not enough for San Marino as Andorra pulled clear in the second half and stretched their lead to as many as 20 points, 79-59, on a jump-shot from Jordi Moline, with 3:40 to go.

San Marino finished strongly, but had left themselves with too much to do.

Juan Bustamante had 20 points and 13 rebounds for Andorra, while Moline added 16 and 10 boards.

Oriol Peral scored 12 while pulling down 12 rebounds and Victor Lopez had 10 points.

Gaultieri's 38 points were in vain for San Marino.

Wales stormed back in the second half to beat Malta 77-67 and take bronze.

Malta had led 43-32 at half-time as Aaron Falzon enjoyed another huge game.

But Wales had other ideas and Daniel Walsh and Tomas Davies teamed up to guide them back in the second half.

Walsh finished with 23 points while Davies had 20 points and 19 rebounds.

Falzon collected 26 points and 26 rebounds for Malta.

Alessandro Generale collected 24 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Prinicipality of Monaco to fifth place with a 73-49 rout of Gibraltar.
