On Saturday-evening, our U18 boys played the semi-final against host Albania at the European Challengers. In front of a crowded gym, the game was very intense and decided in the final seconds (64:63).
With 8 seconds remaining, Luxembourg was able to compete a great inbounds play and Sam Streef, who led the team with 25 points, made the decisive basket to put Luxembourg up by 1 point (video). Albania had one last chance (video), but could not make another basket and Luxembourg celebrated.
Luxembourg will now face Kosovo in the final.
