FIBA Europe reports in an article that the Lithuanian girls beat Russia to capture their first U18 European Championship. The final outcome of the game was 63 -57.
Any time Lithuania wins a tournament in basketball, it is time to celebrate. It is even better that it was against Russia. I enjoy the fact that Lithuania continues to dominate at basketball internationally.
I enjoy the fact that the players who play for Lithuania are Lithuanians. I noticed some countries have players who are not natural citizens. They are made citizens so they can play for their national team. For example, on the German Olympic team, Chris Kaman, was made a citizen so he could play for their team during the 2008 Olympics.
