But let's go back to the game between Turkey and Spain. Both teams had equal chances and it was hard to point which of them was a favorite. Both Turkey and Spain lost only one game in the entire tournament, and in each case it was to the strongest team of the tournament - host Serbia / Montenegro.
The game started with a domination of Spaniards. They ended the first quarter with 9 points lead. 2nd quarter was reflection of the first one, but it was Turkish team, which won it and ended half time with 42-42 tie. Third quarter was a real roller coaster. It started from slight lead of Spanish team, then went in the favour of Turkish team, slipped back to Spaniards and finally Turkey took slight lead in the center of that part of the game and carried it over till the last break with 66-63 result. The last quarter was extremely nervous as the teams knew what they played for and every second could be crucial. Spaniards easily tied the game with 3-pointer of Javier Forcada (191-G-88). But then Turkish team had 8-0 run with good shots of Yagmur, Savas and Goktas. Spanish team tried to catch up, however Turkish managed to keep slight lead. It was the last minute when real horror started. Turkish enter final minute with 3 points lead. Best Spanish player that evening - Jose Angel Antelo (203-F/C-87) - had great jump shot, which put Spain just 1 point behind (76-77). Spanish team stormed Turkish players and they missed the shot and Savas fouled Marc Fernandez (195-G-87) from Spain just 20 seconds before the end of the game. Fernandez did not miss any of his two free throw shots and Spain took 1 point lead with just 20 seconds to go. Turkey took immediately time off. It was Turkish Oguz Savas (208-C-87), who was the real hero of the evening and with his perfect jumper, he established the final result for 79-78 for Turkish team.

  Day 5: France did not manage to catch up with Italy - Jul 21, 2005
The most tough game was between Italy and France. Italy tried to stay undefeated in their group, while France had the last chance to make it to the semifinals. Italian teams entered last quarter with comfortable 10-points lead, despite the lead changed during the game few times. French team had a very tough task to catch up with Italians.

Both Russia and Spain still have a chance to make it to the semis. They will face each other in direct game tomorrow. It will be definitely the most interesting game of the day.

Quarterfinal Round
Group E:

Italy - France 83-81 (Luigi Datome 30p+7r, Bruttini 19 - Adrien Moerman 26, Curti 13p+6a)
Turkey - Latvia 71-66 (Akyol 28p+4r, Savas 14p+10r - Kalve 22, Freimanis 18p+11r)

Classification Round
Group G:
Croatia seems be mistakenly put in 9-16 places. Many experts thinks they should play in the quearterfinal round instead. But they had very tough group in the classifications, and just only two teams could make it to the quarterfinal round. Unfortunately they were the third one. But Croatia seems to be the main candidate to take 9th spot in the tournament.
Slovenia - Germany 68-61 (Horvat 16p+7r, Tomic 14p+5a - Ohlbrecht 18p+14r, Simon 15p+5r+5a)
Croatia - Belgium 94-62 (Siriscevic 25p+4r, Tomic 18p+9r+6a - Verbeeck 13p+4r, Lamot 13)
Group H:
Lithuania does not impress at all. Surprisingly they have very weak group of players in that age category. They traditionally belong to the main favorites in such age tournaments. Not this year...
At the other side Greece is definitely the best team in Group H. They will try to challenge Croatia for the 9th place.
Bulgaria - Lithuania 78-70 (I.Lilov 21p+10r+4a, Kostov 16p+4r - Gecevicius 17p+4r, Dilys 15p+6r)
Poland - Greece 66-90 (Pietras 18p+8r, Gabinski 12p+11r - Passalidis 19p+6r, Manolopoulos 18p+4r)

  Day 4: Serbia beats Russia and Turkey defeats France - Jul 19, 2005
The most interesting game of day 4 was between two candidates for the title: Russia and Serbia / Montenegro. Host Serbian team confirmed their aspirations for the championship title defeating Russians 75-70. The game did not disappoint the fans. Despite early lead by the host team, Russia stayed close for the whole game, taking the lead on many occasions. The last quarter was very tough too. Milenko Tepic's 3-pointer gave the lead for Serbia / Montenegro and they managed to carry it till the end of the game. The best players for host team were Dragan Labovic (208-C/F-87) (15 points and 12 rebounds), Vladimir Dasic (207-F-88) (13) and Marko Djurkovic (206-C/F-87) (13). Russia was lead by Vasili Zavorouev (196-G-87) (16).

  Preliminary Round - Day 3: Israeli and Spain won thrillers - Jul 19, 2005
Teams which promoted to the quarterfinals are already known. In Group A France surprisingly upset favorite Russia 80-71. It seems that Russian were too much focus on following the victory of their 2-years older countrymen, who just won European Championships. However both Russia and France already advanced to the quarterfinal stage, so the game was not such tense. Surprisingly weak Lithuania lost their 3rd game in a row, this time being edged by Germany 87-84.
In Group B Latvia had to win against Belgium, which did not take them too much of effort, and Greece supposed to beat leader Spain. However Spaniards were slightly better edging Greeks by 1 point.
In the toughest Group C, three teams ended with 2-1 record. However only Italy and Israel made it to the quarterfinals. And the game between these two teams was the most interesting that day. Israel had to win this game against higher ranked Italy. They did it after very spectacular game which was won by Israelis 59-56. The game was ultimately settled by two Omri Casspi (200-F-88) free throws as time elapsed.
Hosts Serbia & Montenegro and Turkey advanced from Group D. The top two met on Sunday with Serbia & Montenegro taking the honours, 71-69, thanks largely to 18 points from Nenad Mijatovic (195-G-87).

Elishay
Kadir

The most interesting game (but not the most important) was between Russia and Lithuania. Their 2-years older countrymen will play later today in the final of European Championships in Russia. But in junior category Russia was way better than their opponents from Lithuania taking easy ...31 points victory. Russia will face another undefeated team in Group A France on Sunday.
Spain seems to be in a very good shape as they defeated Belgium 96-71 and counting Greeks lost game to Latvia, Spain become the only undefeated team in Group B
The same situation in Group C where Italy is the only team with perfect record after they beat easily Slovenia not allowing them to score even 50 points.
