Serbia made an excellent offensive performance and rallied past Puerto Rico to book its ticket for the Final of the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Belgrade.

The Serbians took control from the second quarter onwards (51-40) and never looked back. Despite the effort of Puerto Rico to turn things around, the hosts kept their lead to double digits (95-81) and cruised to the win (102-84).

Serbia will now face Italy in the Final of the tournament on Sunday. The winner will advance to the Olympic Games to play Australia, Nigeria and the winner of the Split Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Group B.
