The Russians overcame a stiff challenge from Nigeria to beat the west African nation 85-77 while Lithuania blew away the Dominican Republic 109-83 in the fiercely competitive 12-team tournament in Venezuela on Saturday.
The Nigerians and the Dominicans, who have been surprise packages in the event, will lock horns for the remaining Olympic slot.
