BERLIN (Germany) - Dennis Schroder produced the highest efficiency rating of the Semi-Finals, though it was not enough to prevent Germany from missing out on a place in Sunday's title showdown.

The German captain had 19 points in the first half alone before going on to finish with a 30-point haul, along with 8 assists, as his side came up short of reaching the Final in a 96-91 defeat to Spain.

Lorenzo Brown played another starring role for the victors with 29 points on 65 percent shooting as well as dishing out 6 assists to lead the way in the Semi-Final triumph as Spain set up a meeting with France to decide this year's winners.

Guerschon Yabusele had arguably his best game of the tournament with a team-high 22 points on 9 of 12 shooting as France cruised into the Final with an emphatic 95-54 victory with Moustapha Fall adding 6 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks in the win to join his teammate in the frontcourt.

Meanwhile, Andreas Obst rounds out the team after finishing with 15 points and 5 rebounds with five three-pointers in Germany's five-point loss to make a second successive appearance in the lineup.
