Greece plays Montenegro in the second FIBA World Cup 2023 Second Round game.
After being eliminated in the quarterfinals, both national teams play their final match.
Both teams needed Friday wins to stay in the Top-8. They came up short.
The Greeks played effectively in the first half against Lithuania (32-40) and were close until the third quarter (61-58), but crumbled in the fourth and lost by 25.
The Lithuanians outscored their opponents 53-24 and 28-9 in the second half thanks to their defense.
Greece will return home on Monday because there are no classification games for 9-16 slots. Lithuania advanced to the Top-8.
Montenegro needed to overcome Team USA to stay in the FIBA World Cup Top 8, but the Americans won in the second half.
The Montenegrins led 37-38 at halftime and kept close until the fourth (59-55, 72-68).
However, the Americans scored 13-5 and never looked back to win (85-73).
Team USA and Lithuania will play off on Sunday for the group lead moving into Tuesday's quarterfinals.
