European Championship in basketball is about to start this Wednesday (Sept. 4th). I though it would be a good idea to make a separate thread about the tournament rather than just posting everything in 'Other Sports'. We're playing in Group B together with Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Latvia.

Group Matches:
Latvia - BiH (September 4th, 14:30 CET)
BiH - Serbia (September 5th, 17:45 CET)
Montenegro - BiH (September 6th, 14:30 CET)
BiH - Macedonia (September 8th, 14:30 CET)
Lithuania - BiH (September 9th, 17:45 CET)

Team
Edin Bavcic
Nihad Djedovic
Nemanja Gordic
Elmedin Kikanovic
Ante Masic
Muhamed Pasalic
Dalibor Persic
Nedzad Sinanovic
Andrija Stipanovic
Marko Sutalo
Mirza Teletovic
Zackary Wright
Aco Petrovic (coach)


So what do you think guys, do we have anything to offer here or will we just end up among the last teams? I have a optimistic feeling about the basketball NT but it sure is a tough group. Does anyone now if the matches will be on TV? I can't find anything on BHT.

Nah, it's too late. I remember Preldzic said he'd play for us (this was before EC 2011) and then he switchd to Turkey. :howler:

We have OK chances. A win vs. Latvia is a must, as well as vs. Montenegro. If we surprise MAC/SER/LIT, thus having three wins, we're basically into the next round (not impossible, we surprised Croatia last year).

Btw, the games will be on FTV.

He's not fully fit, but he said he'll play like 10-15 minutes. Still, that's good for us. Wright can abuse hs ahleticism against their 2nd string PG.

Montenegro can be a very tough team. They have two post players in Vucevic and Pekovic both are monsters. Serbia and Lithuania are traditionally basketball teams. For sure you guys should try to defeat Latvia and although not an easy feat try to see if you've figured out Macedonia. Good luck!

Nikola Pekovic won't be playing for Montenegro at Eurobasket 2013 so that makes that much weaker. With him however, Montenegro would probably have been the favourite to win the group.

Not ahead of Lithuania...

For BiH, the only unbeatable team now is Lithuania...Serbia has come here with a B/C team and as Boris mentioned Montenegro has no Pek...the Maks will be tough but are very beatable...
