Serbia may apply to host one of the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments next July. Serbia ended Eurobasket in fourth position and booked a ticket for the preolympics. But the Serbian Basketball Federation, with the help of the government, may be one of the countries candidates to host the tournaments that will qualify the last three teams at the Olympic Games in Rio.
France pulled away in the third quarter to beat Serbia 81-68 and win the bronze medal at the European basketball championship on Sunday. Spain and Lithuania play for the title later Sunday.
