    Italy led by excellent Flaccadori beat Latvia finishing 5th. Good 3-pt skills display by both teams.

    Croatia - Greece 41-26 HT

    again playing without Božić, arguably the best player on the team.
    Mazalin stepped up with 20+7 in one half.

    we got beat in third and it was enough for Greece to win the game and qualify to division A..
    we stay in division B for one more year atleast.
    Mazalin ended with 30+14

    One more bronze, 8th medal in the last 9 tournaments and 11 semi final appearances in the last 12 tournaments (10 EC, 2 WC). Consistency is so important and we are doing a great job on this, however these medals shouldn't mislead us through a false impression, we need to rely on our missing parts more than any country. There are a lot of possible problems ahead of us that we are going to possibly encounter, the right basketball system should immediately be set up. I have already mentioned a lot of things under some other threads on what must be done to help these guys in their transition periods, I don't want to repeat myself. Bronze is for sure a bittersweet success, but still thanks for every medal that you have scooped up for Turkish basketball.

    It was too much for this squad. But they managed to make a great result ending 2nd.

    I liked Garcia from Spain. Reminds Abrines a little bit.

    Every Turkish team shooting terribly behind the arc, there is no player we can rely on when it comes to punishing the zone defense. what is more is scary is great shooters like Korkmaz and Bitim doing too. The future doesn't look bright.

    Damn, could not watch the games in the weekend, but congrats to Lithuania team. I had seen two of their games, and this results was not a shock to me, but a disappointment nonetheless.

    From what I've previously seen, this Turkish team includes players with the highest chances of becoming good players in senior level. We'll wait for that now.
