Netherlands brought the curtain down on Division B action for the summer with a third straight win after an impressive first half and yet another powerful performance by Henk Norel helped them secure a 90-76 win against Estonia.
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.
If you think the recent decision to dispense with Division B for the Men renders the 2010 programme for ‘promotion' somewhat pointless - think again.
For those teams who will fight it out one last time in the second tier, the carrot of an expanded opportunity to make Eurobasket 2013 has made this summer more important than ever.
