Munich – FIBA has officially rejected Lithuania’s protest against Germany after the match.
FIBA commented on the protest of the Lithuanians in its official statement as follows: “The responsible single judge considered the protest to be rejected, as the reason for it was presented after the set 60-minute game.”
FIBA: Reason for protest insufficient
It goes on to say that even if Lithuania had filed it in time, the protest would have been rejected because “the stated reason is not one of the grounds on which a protest can be made.”
After an overtime thriller and a 107:109 loss against hosts Germany, Lithuanian basketball players filed an official protest against the classification of the game. The reason was a technical foul against the German bank, which did not lead to a free throw by the Lithuanians.
