LITHUANIAN basketball is known for a lot of things, including passionate fans.
They go everywhere to cheer for their national team. And Tuesday, they even cheered for France — for good reason.
Lithuania topped Hungary, 87-64, and that, combined with France's win over Bosnia and Herzegovina, means the last qualifying spot out of Group B of EuroBasket is still unclaimed.
It'll be decided on Wednesday when Lithuania plays Bosnia and Herzegovina, the winner moving on to Berlin and a round-of-16 game, the loser heading home eliminated.

"Lithuanian fans are the best," France guard Evan Fournier said.
If France had lost Tuesday, Lithuania would have been eliminated. Instead, those Lithuanian fans serenaded the French with cries of "Merci!" for keeping their national team's hopes alive.
"It feels amazing," Lithuania forward Domatas Sabonis said. "They travel to every championship to support us. It's sad we couldn't give them a win over the weekend, but we're glad we could give them one today and the goal is to give them another one tomorrow."
Jonas Valanciunas scored 21 points on 10-of-13 shooting and Sabonis added 19 for Lithuania (1-3).
