  • [01] Greece moves on to Mundobasket semi-finals

    Greece, the 2005 European champion, continued its solid winning streak on Wednesday, beating France 73-56 in a quarterfinal game and qualifying for the final-four in the 15th World Basketball Championship taking place in Japan.

    Greece's men's national basketball team will face the winner of the USA-Germany game to be held later in the day in the semi-final stage of the FIBA World Championship 2006 on Friday.

    The other semi-final game will be played between Spain and Argentina.
