Greece in Fiba Semi-Finals.

Postby Sotos » Wed Aug 30, 2006 2:09 pm

Unbeaten Greece reached the last four of the World Basketball Championship after securing a scrappy 73-56 victory over France in Saitama, Japan.

Greece took their time to get going and an off-balance three-pointer from Dimitris Diamantidis put his side 34-24 ahead at the half-time interval.

But they powered away after the break, with Antonis Fotsis and Lazaros Papadopoulos both claiming 14 points.

Greece will play either Germany or the United States in the semi-finals.

France, who lost star guard Tony Parker just before the tournament, struggled to find their way through a well-marshalled Greece team.

They were only 51-43 behind going into the final quarter but their shooting was never accurate enough to threaten the European champions. The French shot just 35% from open play.


Next game with probably USA will be the harder one!

If we keep our defensive game in a high level as we have done until now, then the USA will have a very hard time winning. Their game is fast paced, which can lead to them making a lot of turnovers against a solid defence
