In 1977 the EuroBasket was held in Belgium, with the Grand Final in Liege. After the preliminary stages, medals were played between Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union for Gold, and Czechoslovakia and Italy for Bronze. In the final, the Balkans won (74-61) thanks to the offensive inspiration of Dalipagic (19 points) and Kicanovic (16 points)

In the fight for the Bronze Czechoslovakia won by (91-81) Italy. The Czechs showed a much more forceful game than the azzurro, and Brabenec (29 points) was a nightmare for the blues.
