It wasn’t simple, having in mind that they played six matches in six days, that the tournament scheduled on particular date was postponed in two days, and about that change they were informed only 24 hours before the first match.
They won two matches, among which most important one was against Serbia. Since both teams are approximately same age, this victory was good sign for our team before beginning of European championship up to 20 in Greece. Because of the championship in Greece, our young team came to Pescara where they had final and most important phase in preparations for the forthcoming basketball events. It seems that this practice was really successful, regardless four lost matches and really good rivals.
