    Nice come back for Lithuania. #45 and #2 from France are beasts. I knew #2 before this game, but #45 is 15 yo.

    Congrats France. Well deserved. Very solid play in the clutch.

    Congrats to France, well deserved title, Ntilikina is MVP imo. Lithuania never gave up and tried everything in 2nd half but not enough. Great outside shooting from Kulboka.
    Fine tournament of Italy, that ended on a good note for 3rd place thanks to an excellent Alessandro Lever, Germany below expectations and not at the same AST level from early this year.

    Lever deserved to be in the all five tournament (probably the best center despite his lack of size, but basket iq and screen setting are above normal for him).. Germany was overrated without some of its key players. But all teams are missing important pieces.

    Great to see a pg that clutch for us, it will make a real change after Parker. If he can improve his offense (floater, better dribble penetration, some postsup with his size..) he can really become one of the greatest french player. At least he is already better than Parker (on both ends...) ^ ^.

    For the first time since its inception (1979) none of the nations from the former Yugoslavia will be represented at the next U19 WC, this is imo the main outcome from this Euro tournament. Bosnia was the closest to the qualification but had Musa performing under par today.

    France and Lithuania will for sure be fine contenders, under today's perspectives, Italy maybe not at the same level but showed to be one of the most consistent teams during this year, duplicating the bronze earned in spring time at the AST in Mannheim. Germany recovered All-tournament Hartenstein (as compared to the brilliant team winner of AST) but had Freudenberg unavailable, however some of the best players (mainly Mushidi) performed somewhat inconsistently.

    Good return of Russia, that could have even deserved some better placement. Turkey disappointing but under present circumstances couldn't do much more.

    Is Musa not liked by his trammates?

    I remember a video of when the senior team beat Russia? And no one was celebrating with him.

    Even Teletovic scolded Musa for flopping in the senior team's game vs Russia. What's actually wrong with Musa these days? From taking the U16 team to the European championship, to leading the U17 World Cup in points (plus a record 50 points vs TPE), to a performance like this and getting hated on by his teammates both youth and senior. This could spell danger for his career if he doesn't shape up. Bosnia could lose a future piece right then and there.
