LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (AP) - Finland edged Russia 86-83 in double overtime Sunday to advance to the second round of the European basketball championship.

Finland trailed in both regulation and the first overtime before pulling out the win.

The defeat in Koper eliminated Russia, the bronze medalist at the London Olympics last year and at the Europeans two years ago. The top three teams from each group advance.

In Celje, NBA stars Ricky Rubio and Marc Gasol scored 15 points apiece to lead defending champion Spain to an 89-53 victory over winless Poland.

Five players scored in double figures for Spain (3-1). Spain led 49-13 at halftime and by as many as 48 points before slowing down in the second half.

Hanno Mottola sank a 3-pointer for Finland with 3 seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime. Mottola put in a tip-in and Gerald Lee's lay-up tied the game at the end of the first overtime.

Sergey Monya's 3-pointer made it 82-82 in the second overtime before Lee dunked and made one of two free throws to give Finland a three-point lead. Monya then missed one free throw and Sasu Salin made on for Finland. Russia called a timeout with 6 seconds remaining, but Monya came out to miss a 3-point attempt and Finland had the win.

The Russians were without Andrei Kirilenko and several other stars.

Shawn Huff led Finland with 20 points and nine rebounds, while Salin and Tuukka Kotti had 12 points and 10 rebounds each.

Bosnia-Herzegovina beat Macedonia 62-54 and Britain eliminated Germany with an 81-73 victory.

Bosnia is 2-2. Macedonia fell to 1-3 and the semifinalist from two years ago is on the verge of being eliminated.

Britain (2-2) got 23 points from Andrew Lawrence, while Germany (1-3) got 20 points and 14 rebounds from Tibor Pleiss.
