Czech Republic will head into next summer's EuroBasket Division B campaign as the only unbeaten team in the competition and with the task of defending their perfect record after they quite literally worked overtime for a thrilling 99-92 victory in Switzerland.
Young forward Tomas Mrvis was proud of his performance after scoring his first points for the Slovak Republic at senior level in Tuesday's 60-52 EuroBasket Division B win over Switzerland.
Mrvis' scored on a driving lay-up in the third quarter that helped the Slovak Republic rally from 43-35 down to pull out the victory.
Czech Republic are beginning to look the class act in Division B after they followed up their win against neighbours Slovak Republic with a 93-50 rout of Cyprus in Decin. The home team ran riot from tip to buzzer and leading the way was Pavel Slezak who buried four triples for 17 points.
Poland showed why they are a division apart from the Slovak Republic as they enjoyed two comfortable wins this weekend with both teams warming up for their respective EuroBasket qualifying campaigns.
Division A Poland won their opener 108-57 against the Division B opponents in Lodz, and then followed that up with a 70-46 victory a day later.
