Lithuania saved itself in Vilnius from the embarrassment that would be – regardless of formation – a defeat against Denmark. The hosts won, with a score of 77:76, and the key was to hold off Mantas Calnitis over Adam Darboy in the final action of the match. Finally, the fate of the promotion was decided in Perm, as North Macedonia played against Estonia. The Macedonians had to win by at least 9 points, so in the last seconds of the fourth quarter there was an unusual situation. Estonia was leading 84:83 and had 2 free throws, but missed intentionally so that the competitors could not increase the time. In the end, the Macedonians won the 86:84 ratio, but didn’t win the promotion.
