Default Re: EuroBasket 2013 Qualifiers

Estonia ****ing did it again! We beat Serbia at our home! 88:81 yeah!!!


After the disappointing home loss to Israel which erased our hopes of qualifying, this was a well deserved medicine to heal the wounds.

Estonia was able to pull off in the middle of the 4th and managed to keep the lead under pressure. Refs tried to pull Serbia back into the game but even they couldn't prevent the mighty Estonians to get their historical win.

Too bad we couldn't surprise Montenegro or Israel at home. Got to finish off the qualifiers with a decent win over Iceland next Tuesday.

Some notes from the game:

- Estonia finally got their 3-pointers going (11/27)
- Kristic was practically automatic in the low post
- Dark horse Hallik was the key for the victory for Estonia. Him starting probably saved some early fouls for our main bigs and he also knocked down some huge threes.
- Serbian defense was very poor, Estonia got many easy looks under the basket. Even though they toughened up their D, we were still able to get decent looks.
