In their first U16 Women Division A match, the English were struggling to find a way to the basket, taking long periods with no points scored.

The English had a chance to show some quality during the fourth period, when the Croatian team started rotating their players.

Meanwhile, Leah McDerment was the leading English player, with 10 points and eight rebounds.
