Hosts Lithuania wrapped up their tournament by edging Greece in a pulsating contest in front of a packed Kauno Arena to finish in fifth spot.
No matter what happens on Saturday, Greece coach Ilias Zouros and all of his players will leave the EuroBasket in Kaunas believing they accomplished their mission.
Imagine what it feels like to have a proud basketball tradition like Lithuania and to fall short of a EuroBasket podium in front of your own fans.
Lithuania dodged a bullet against Slovenia to book a spot at the Olympic Qualifying Tournament amidst incredible tension in Kaunas.
