People and media in Lithuania noticed that as well, seeing all the balkan countries in one group is more than exiting and we can expect lots of emotions and fight in the basketball court and even outside of it. that is a big challenge for the host city Alytus. Alytus is the smallest out of all 6 host cities of Euro2011 and has the smallest arena out of all of them.

I can imagine how more exiting it would be if Serbia was there instead of Greece, I could already picture the match Serbia vs Montenegro or serbia vs Croatia, anyway match Greece vs Macedonia should be also really exiting

btw I can predict that Hungary will qualify to group C, as it is also considered as balkan country

Anyway in group D we have got most of the countries from ex-soviet union or countries from slavic European region, so i just wanna say what a weird Eurobasket 2011 is going to be

Nah, it would have been much worse with Serbia in this group.

Saying that group A is a challange for Poland would be an understetment...
