Who do you think will emerge as the winner in that group?
Well, Italy and Turkey have a lot more talent but they've been known to get upset by inferior teams in recent times. Finland has a bit more size inside and some competent rebounders. Who knows though, you guys have two really good players and could surprise some people.
I think Greece is the clear favorite in that group followed by Turkey.

And did Finland get a beating with 37 points against Latvia!?
Ahh, gotcha, I didn't know that. Yeah, I have no idea how Finland got destroyed that badly by Latvia. I do know that the Latvians can be deadly from 3 point range when they're feeling it.
