The final score was 92-52 and the stage is set for the showdown between Spain and Croatia for the game which will decide the top of Group C.

On the contrary, the hosts of the group, Romania, for one more game couldn’t be competitive.

The star: Every player of Spain did his job when he was on the court, however, Juancho Hergnangomez was more than impressive with a double-double (20 p., 11 r.), proving that the next generation of the Spanish national team is ready to continue the team’s tradition of dominance.

Half effort: Romania tried to stay in the game and managed to trail by two points at the end of the first period (21-19). Until the 15th minute of the game the score was close (28-24 lead for Spain) but at the end of the first half the Spaniards were up by 14 points (41-27) and the game was over.

Spain led even by 42 points in the 35th minute (82-40) and it remains to be seen if Croatia can keep up with them.
