Spain-Serbia move onward

Just watched Spain demolish France 86-66 (thanks to Lithuanian TV, what would we do without them now ESPN appeared to have lost interest?). The world champs are definitely back in business although it was a really sub-par showing from a French side that had been hitherto really impressive. Tony Parker was terrible but the Les Bleus failed to show up. Still not convinced by Espana but they may be gathering the momentum to scrape their way to victory on Sunday evening in Katowice.

Coupled with Serbia's trouncing of reigning champions Russia today, it confirms that GB were really in the Group of Death.

I think Greece and Slovenia will prevail on Friday and book semi-spots  - although the Greeks' clash with Turkey could be the game of the tournament.

Shame to find out ESPN is not showing the final live, as well.
