FIBA statement regarding FIBA EuroBasket 2022 game between Lithuania and Germany

FIBA Europe has issued a statement regarding the FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Group B game between Lithuania and Germany played on September 4, 2022 in Cologne, Germany.

Following the conclusion of the game, the national team of Lithuania submitted a protest regarding the failure to award a merited free-throw following the technical foul assessed on Team Germany with 1:26 remaining in the third quarter.

The Single Judge deemed the protest inadmissible as the protest reasons were delivered outside the designated time of 60 minutes after the game.

They also noted that if the protest were admissible, it would have been rejected as the reason presented is not one of the reasons under which a protest can be filed.
