Lithuania did not have bigger problems in the semifinal game against undefeated (so far) Australia, beating them by 23 points. Lithuania show very effective team game with 4 players scoring double figures, while Paulius Jankunas (205-F-84, agency: Interperformances) had impressive double-double (15 points and 15 rebounds). In the other semifinal game Greece managed to get victory over Canada 74-61, stopping hero of the game against USA - Levon Kendall (210-F-84), who had just 8 points.
In other games USA outscored Puerto Rico by 20 points, host Argentina gave no chance to Slovenia with comfortable 70-43 victory, and Nigeria upset Israel 110-104 in 9th place game.

Greece - Canada 74-61 (Vasileiadis 18, Mavrokefalidis 17+10r, Vasilopoulos 15+6r - Rautins 14, Francis 12, Kendall 8+7r)
A strong defensive work, a great ball handling in offensives and a winner spirit were the keys in another spectacular Greek triumph. Greece beat Canada 74 to 61 and became the first U21 Championship finalist.
HC Greece: Manos Manouselis 'I think it was a game against ourselves, not because Canada would be a great rival, though we wanted to challenge our destiny. In the past we reached different semi finals and we lost all of them. So the way we would think this game it was a huge psychological problem. With regard to this particular match it was very competitive. Both of us played a good defence. Our main strengthen were rebounds; that gave us more chances to win. About the finals I do not have preferences. If the others teams reach this stage is because they are good.'
Lithuania - Australia 96-73 (Maciulis 19, Seibutis 17+5r, Jankunas 15+15r, Prekevicius 14 - Carter 19, Markovic 14, Newley 11)
Lithuania ratified his power and versatility with an excellent victory against Australia, 96 to 73. Consequently, this team classified to the U21 Championship finals. Tomorrow, at 9.50 PM, Lithuania will face Greece. Australia will try to rank 3th in a match against Canada.
HC Lituania: Ramunas Butautas 'We know Australia very well, because we played against them a lot of times. They had strong players and good three points shooters. So, our mission in this match was slowed down the rhythm; not played fast as they wanted. Today, we had a great defence, but also an intelligent offensive. Now I want to celebrate this huge step; we will have time to think about tomorrow. I know we are prepared and we will win this tournament.'
