Karalina Padshyvalava and Aliaksandra Shymkaviak each tallied 13 points for Belarus, who dropped to 0-4 in the group. Nadzeya Bohdan added 11 rebounds in a losing effort.

Both teams started slow but Belarus grabbed a 7-3 lead after six minutes. Mányoky, however, knocked down two three-pointers and scored nine points in a 17-1 surge spanning the first two quarters for a 22-8 advantage. Bohdan hit Belarus's first basket in nearly 12 minutes midway through the second quarter and a triple by Padshyvalava and a three-point play from Aliaksandra Musatava had Viktoriya Datsun's team trailing Hungary just 26-18 at the break.

The third period saw both teams rely on the long ball as Mányoky's triple helped push the advantage to 30-12 before Maryia Filonchyk and Shymkaviak went back-to-back to make it a six-point affair. Mányoky hit twice more from long range while Filonchyk and Padshyvalava answered to stay within 41-36 after three periods. It was 46-45 after triples by Musatava and Shymkaviak. Leading 48-45, Hungary turned the ball over twice in the final 47 seconds left, the second which Shymkaviak converted into a lay-up to cut the margin to 48-47 with five seconds left. Belarus got the ball back with 0.2 seconds but could get off a game-winning attempt.
