After winning his fourth Eurobasket gold, Spain coach Sergio Scariolo talked about his team exceeding expectations, via Eurohoops:

It’s easy to say we are extremely happy. We were at 8th place in the power rankings and we managed to climb over great teams, especially this last one, full of NBA and EuroLeague players. It’s been amazing to see now the final rankings and be above all those great teams. We said in the start, that we should put a guy at least at the Top15. That’s why I am happy and as a basketball coach, I am very happy because we played great basketball,” Scariolo said.
