por Roberto Anidos publicado en 1991 Decade 90 EuroBasket Italy Yugoslavia

In the summer of 1991, the EuroBasket is held in Rome, an event that would show us for the last time Yugoslavia as a unified country. The last competition in which Croats, Serbs, Montenegrins, Slovenes and Bosnians played under the same flag. The Balkans would win Gold after beating Italy 88-73

In the semi-finals Yugoslavia beat France 97-76 and Italy eliminated Spain 93-90. In the fight for the Bronze, Spain beat France by 101-83. The Spaniards could thus end a seven-year drought without winning a metal.
