Spain’s basketball players found their best form as they crushed Serbia to reach the semifinals of Eurobasket 2013 in Slovenia on Wednesday.

Sergio Rodríguez and Rudy Fernández led the scoring, with 22 and 19 points apiece, in Ljubljana’s Stozice Arena as Spain eased to a 90-60 victory in the first quarterfinal to put some of the doubts surrounding it to rest.

Juan Antonio Orenga’s men have already suffered three defeats in the competition so far — to Slovenia, Greece and Italy.

Spain will now play the winner of the France-Slovenia match for a place in the final as it bids for its third Eurobasket title in a row.
