They will meet in Friday’s semifinal game. Slovenia and Spain will play each other Thursday for a spot in the gran finale.

Italy 67-83 Serbia

Serbia put itself in position to win its first EuroBasket since a silver in 2009 when it defeated Italy 67-83. Bogdan Bogdanovic, playing on the same floor on which he won the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague crown last season with Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul, led all scorers with 22 points for the winners. Milan Macvan scored 13 and his FC Bayern Munich teammate Vladimir Lucic posted 13 and 11 points, respectively, while Boban Marjanovic and Unicaja Malaga swingman Dragan Milosavljevic scored 10 each. Serbia dominated the glass in outrebounding Italy 19-44. Marco Belinelli led the Italian attack with 18 points and Fenerbahce’s Luigi Datome added 15. The Italian defense was in control early as it held Serbia scoreless for more than four minutes, but Fenerbahce teammates Nicolo Melli and Datome were only able to put their side up 5-0 in that period. Zalgiris playmaker Vasilije Micic gave Serbia its first lead, 7-8, and after Italy regained control, 4 points by Milosavljevic left Serbia up 17-18 after 10 minutes. Melli tied the game with a triple early in the second quarter, however Lucic and Macvan hit back-to-back three-pointers to cap a 2-12 Serbia run that made it 27-38. Italy responded with threes from Christian Burns and Datome, but Real Madrid center Ognjen Kuzmic made a pair of free throws to give Serbia a 33-44 halftime lead. The difference swelled to 15 before a pair of baskets by Paul Biligha helped Italy get within 46-54. Bogdanovic sank free throws for a 48-59 Serbia lead through three quarters. Italy refused to wilt, but Bogdanovic remained strong and helped Serbia tack on to its lead and roll to a convincing victory.

Greece 69-74 Russia

Russia reached the EuroBasket semifinals for the first time since 2011 with a 69-74 victory over Greece. Khimki Moscow Region guard Alexey Shved starred once again for Russia with 26 points, 5 assists and 3 steals. Timofey Mozgov came up big inside with 15 points and 12 rebounds, while CSKA Moscow’s Vitaly Fridzon added 11 points and Andrey Vorontsevich collected 12 rebounds.
