por Roberto Anidos publicado en 1973 Decade 70 EuroBasket Spain Yugoslavia

In 1973 the EuroBasket was held in Spain, with the final being held in Barcelona. After passing the previous rounds the battles for the medals were, for Gold, between the local Spain and Yugoslavia, and for Bronze, between the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia. The final was won by the Yugoslavs over the Spanish (67-78), where Cosic’s inner power was worth more than Brabender’s goalscoring inspiration, and the Bronze went to the Soviet Union, after beating Czechoslovakia by a clear-cut (90-58)

In the Bronze, the Soviet Union had no problem winning decisively against Czechoslovakia. The Czechs had no way of curbing Soviet superiority
