Skrzecz Disappointment

Polish coach Roman Skrzecz is extremely disappointed about his side's sixth place finish at the Under-20 European Championships for Women in France. Poland's tournament got off to a terrible start with a 65-56 defeat to Hungary and though they qualified for the knockout stage, tournament favourites Russia eliminated them in the quarter-finals.

Final Game: Russia 80 France 64

Russia Champions!
Russia completely outplayed France this evening to take the title of the Eural Trans Gas European Championship for U20 Women 2004. They were clearly the stronger of the two teams and simply played in a different class from their hosts. Once they established a lead they held onto it for the remainder of the game, their solid defence impervious to any French attack.

Game for 3rd Place: Czech Republic 70 Hungary 47
After narrowly losing to Hungary in the Preliminary Round games, the Czech Republic were determined that there would be no repeat of that this afternoon. For almost 30 minutes the game could have gone either way but Hungary lacked their top scorer Anna Vajda (15 points, 5 rebounds) when they needed her most and the Czechs turned it to their complete advantage in the latter stages.
