Belarus into Women's EuroBasket 2015 semis

The women's basketball team of Belarus in their trademark dramatic style won a ticket to the semifinals of the European Championship.

Coach Anatoly Buyalsky's charges were 39:20 ahead in the middle of the second quarter.

But Lithuanians replied with some good attacks, which eventually led to them trailing by only five points.

Some 1.5 seconds before the end of the match Ekaterina Snytina made a bad mistake and the ball went out.

Fortunately, Lithuanians were not able to score and the scoreboard read 68:66 in favor of Belarus.

On Friday Belarus will play in the semi-finals against Serbia. A victory will allow Belarus to take part in the Olympic qualification, which will be held in June 2016.
