(Luís Cristóvão) When you talk about Basketball, Portugal isn’t the place you go looking for young talent. Mostly, because the Portuguese don’t usually are in the big competitions.

The winners from Breitengüssbach deserved the victory because of their endless will and deeper rotation as they had 11 players capable of contributing on this level.
