Russia routed North Macedonia, 94-77, at Perm on Friday to clinch a EuroBasket berth through Group B. Joel Bolomboy logged a game-high 19 points. Vojdan Stojanovski recorded 18 points for the losing side.

Estonia defeated Italy in the earlier game at the same venue strengthening its bid for the remaining advancing spot of the group.

Two more clinching teams were generated at Tbilisi as Serbia crushed Georgia, 92-66. Filip Petrusev went for 27 points and Danilo Andjusic added 22 points for visitors, while Giorgi Shermadini scored 20 points for the team coached by Ilias Zouros.

Consequently, Finland advanced as well in the aftermath of the win, 92-84, against Switzerland in the earlier Group E affair.

Poland can also clinch with a home win over Spain or if Israel beats Romania in the first Group A game at Gliwice.

Hungary can complete the Group F progressing sides with a win against Austria at Kiev.
