Portugal and Finland have claimed the final two spots in this season's EuroBasket tournament, clinching via a three-team additional qualifying round. Hungary has been eliminated.
It still remains to be seen which groups Portugal and Finland will land in; the teams will play Aug. 24 to decide that matter. The winner will end up in the relatively light Group C with Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia. The loser will end up in the Group of Death, a Group A featuring Spain, Turkey, host Lithuania, Poland and Great Britain. The top three finishers in each group move on to a second group round before knockouts.
Neither Finland nor Portugal boast current NBA players. EuroBasket 2011 itself begins August 31. The top two finishers earn berths to the 2012 London Olympics, and the next four teams down the sheet win rights to next summer's last-chance qualifying tournament, which will decided the final three Olympic combatants.
