6 septiembre 2017 00:42

Finland pulled off an upset to progress to the knockout stages of Eurobasket with an 89-77 victory over Greece in Helsinki.

Finland - ranked 32nd in the world - led comfortably throughout the encounter until Greece, who only recently fell out of the top 10, mounted a late fightback in vain.

Petteri Koponen and Lauri Markkanen starred for the Group A hosts with 24 and 17 points respectively, leaving their opponents to face a winner-takes-all clash with Poland in their final group fixture.

France join Finland in the last 16 following their 78-75 win against Poland, while table-toppers Slovenia beat bottom side Iceland 102-75.

Serbia, Latvia, Russia and Turkey will all play in the next round after Tuesday's results in Group D.

Leaders Serbia beat Great Britain 82-68, Russia lost 84-69 to Latvia, and group hosts Turkey clinched their place with a 78-65 win against Belgium.

In Group C, Hungary followed up their first Eurobasket win since 1969 on Monday with another victory - this time over Romania to join Spain, Croatia and Montenegro in progressing to the knockouts.

Qualification in Group B is going down to the wire, with just a point separating Italy, Georgia, Israel and Ukraine. Lithuania and Germany are already assured of their place in the next round.

Georgia kept their hopes alive with a 104-91 overtime win against Israel in Tel Aviv.
