LJUBLJANA, Slovenia -- Greece rallied with a big fourth quarter to beat defending champion Spain 79-75 in the second round of the European basketball championship on Thursday. And Italys undefeated run came to an end against host Slovenia. Trailing by five at the end of three quarters, Greece outscored Spain 27-18 in the fourth to notch a win that could prevent Spain from winning a third consecutive title. "We controlled the rhythm, we made our shots and we had luck on our side," said Greece guard Kostas Sloukas. Vassilis Spanoulis led Greece with 20 points. Rudy Fernandez and centre Marc Gasol both had 20 for Spain. Earlier, Croatia used its size to rout Finland 88-63 for its first victory in the second round. Guard Goran Dragic scored 22 points as Slovenia beat Italy 84-77. His brother Zoran added 15 as the brothers scored all nine of Slovenias points in the last two minutes of the game, including a 3-pointer by Goran with 17.5 seconds left. Goran added 10 rebounds, while Mirza Begic had four blocked shots. Italy was the only team to finish the group stage with a perfect 5-0 record, but fell in its first second-round game against an inspired host team carried by the partisan crowd. Because group results are carried over into the second round, Italy has a 2-1 record, the same as Slovenia, and still has to play Croatia. "It is going to be difficult for us to qualify (for quarterfinals)," Italy coach Simone Pianigiani said. Italy was unable to compensate for the lack of size against the bigger Slovenians, who scored 46 points in the paint, compared to 22 for Italy. "They are a smart team but we played very good defence. We had 44 rebounds, they 29, that was the key," Goran Dragic said. Slovenia coach Bozidar Maljkovic agreed: "Those 10 rebounds were very important. Thats why we won the game." Greece was down by 10 at the end of the first quarter, but used the absence of Gasol in the second quarter to take the lead, 41-38 at halftime. Gasol collected three personal fouls in the first quarter and sat out the second. "Marc plays 40 minutes in the NBA and never fouls out, he knows how to take care of himself. I dont know what happened here," Spain coach Juan Orenga said. Gasol returned in the third, scored 11 straight points, and Spain outscored Greece 19-11 to regain the lead 57-52. Spanoulis then scored five straight to put Greece back up by one. Gasol made two free throws to leave Spain down by four, but forward Mikhail Bramos nailed a 3-pointer with one minute remaining to score the vital points that secured Greeces victory. Spanoulis made four consecutive free throws to offset a 3 by Alex Mumbru and Greece cruised home. "We are still walking in hell and we have to keep walking," Greece coach Andrea Trinchieri said. Greece and Spain have 1-2 records. Croatias big men dominated the boards as the team pulled down 47 rebounds, while Finland finished with 30. Damjan Rudez made five of eight 3-point attempts and finished with 17 points. Croatias defence also shut down Finlands top scorer, Petteri Koponen, whose first points came when he made a 3-pointer at the buzzer of the third quarter. He finished with five points.

Mike Gesicki Jersey . The England international had both goals in TFCs season-opening 2-1 win over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Sidney Crosby has spent months politely rehashing the Pittsburgh Penguins nightmarish spring, a stretch that included a meltdown against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference semifinals and a sizable front office overhaul that shook one of the NHLs most stable organizations.The leagues reigning MVP is happy to turn the page.Im tired of talking about last year, Crosby said. Its nice to move on, get a fresh start here for everybody. Weve got a lot of new faces, we still have a lot to improve on and get better.The Penguins should get an idea of how far they have to go starting Thursday when they host Anaheim in the season opener. Pittsburgh has been one of the leagues best teams out of the gate over the last five years, going 44-24 during the opening month since 2009.Matching that October success may be difficult this time around. A schedule that includes games against the Ducks and defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles wont help. Neither will expected the growing pains associated with trying to adjust to first-year coach Mike Johnstons style.General manager Jim Rutherford stressed during the off-season hed be OK with sacrificing a point or two in the fall if it led to success in the playoffs for a franchise more than five years removed from its last championship.While Crosby cautioned its important not to get lulled into the idea that losing will be tolerated, he said there will be missteps along the way as the Penguins try to forge a new identity under Johnston following five-plus seasons in coach Dan Bylsmas high-risk, high-reward attack.If guys have the right work ethic and our focus is there and we do everything to help ourselves and have mistakes that are mistakes just because its early and guys are getting a feel for each other, I think thats a little more acceptable than it would be in a typical year, he said. That being said, I think you can tell pretty quickly why you make those mistakes and if its a lack of effort or not being sharp. Thats totally different.And while Pittsburgh forward Pascaal Dupuis likened learning Johnstons system a€” one that focuses on puck possession rather than the dazzling if dangerous stretch passes favoured by Bylsma a€” to picking up new slang.dddddddddddd The goal remains the same regardless of who is behind the bench.Every team tries to accomplish the same thing, Crosby said. You try to hold onto the puck. You try to play fast. You try to put pressure on the other team. I dont think that ever changes.Neither does Pittsburghs reliance on its two superstars. Crosby insists hes healthy after dealing with an aching wrist that limited his effectiveness in the playoffs while Evgeni Malkin is expected to play in the opener after missing most of training camp with an undisclosed injury.And while Dupuis, Chris Kunitz, Kris Letang and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury are back too, the rest of the roster looks decidedly different. Its Johnstons job to figure out how best to use newcomers like forwards Patric Hornqvist, Nick Spaling and Blake Comeau. And its the Penguins job to figure out how Johnston works after spending more than half a decade listening to the professional and occasionally excitable Bylsma.I think hes pretty calm, Crosby said. I dont think thats going to change no matter what the score is. Thats his demeanour, thats his way. Id be pretty shocked if you heard his voice all that much.Johnston would prefer his teams play to do most of the talking. Hes been put in an enviable if difficult task of coaxing a roster stuffed with talent a€” particularly at the top a€” toward taking the step thats eluded them since Crosby lifted the Cup in triumph in 2009.He has a six-month regular season to hone the process, though he has no intention of being patient. He was hired to win in April, May and June. Though he will spend all year preaching about the habits and details in our game we know we desperately need come playoff time he has no plans of lowering expectations for October.As far as results go and how were going to play, he said, I expect us to be very sharp right off the hop.
