They upset the “babies” of the Youth National Team, they took… let alone Turkey and they are watching the final!


A place in the semi-finals of EuroBasket U20 was booked by our national team!

What if the “blue and white” was found back with 13 points early in the second period (16-29), Nikos Papadopoulos’ formidable ‘babies’ played fantastic, passionate and team-based basketball afterwards, pulling off a huge upset and a big win with 87-61 over Turkey!

The match

She entered the game quite strongly Turkey even having an… unexpected protagonist. THE Tan Yildizoglou he may have been 0/18 from 3-pointers throughout the tournament, however, in the first minutes of the game he made two consecutive shots from behind 6.75m. for 11-5 of the Turks at 3′. Greece reacted, and with their duo Zougri-Manjuka reduced to point (12-13) at 7′.

However, a new outburst by the Turks behind the three-point line, again with Yildizoglou (!) and Efeoglou, sent the visitors away for the first time at +10 (12-22), with Kalaitzakis shaping the 22-14 in the first period.

Turkey continued to be hot on the 3-point range, and with two early in the second period, they blew the lead to +13 and 29-16 at 12′. The Kalaitzakis and Economist they “answered” with the same coin for our National Team (29-22 at 14′)!

These two baskets seemed to give “wings” to the blue and white, who made a incredible last five minutes in defense and attack, with partial score 16-2! With Zougri and Mandzouka leading the “counterattack”, our national team not only gnawed away at the difference, on the contrary, they closed the half in front with a score of 43-37!

M… acquired speed entered the third period our National team, which continued to play at a high tempo in attack, simultaneously “locking” the corresponding offensive “weapons” of the Turks through good and pressing defense. Playing her familiar game with passion, overlaps and polyphony at the front of the floor, the “blue and white” shot the difference at +13 for 57-44 in the 27th minute!

In fact, the representative group of our country not only did not leave the foot off the “gas”, on the contrary”, in the last two minutes of the game they ran a 4-0 run by the hands of Bazin and Neophytos, closing the quarter at +16 for the greatest honor of the difference and 63-47.

More in a while…

The quarters: 14-22, 43-37, 63-47, 87-61.
