GAME REPORT


Lithuania Rally Past Italy

Lithuania came back from a 16-point first quarter deficit to beat Italy 72-54 and secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the U20 European Championship for Women.

Marina Solopova and Egle Siksniute each scored 15 points and Lina Pikciute collected 10 points and 10 rebounds as Lithuania improved to 3-2 in the qualifying round Group F.

Italy once again squandered a lead despite 15 points from Federica Tognalini and 10 by Elena Bestagno to fall to 0-5 in the group.

The Italians streaked to a 16-point first quarter lead 28-12 against Lithuania. But the Baltic side opened the second quarter with the first 11 points and a 16-3 run to pull within 31-28. Italy still led 34-29 at the break.

Lithuania had an 18-0 spurt to start the second half for a 47-34 lead. Italy cut the deficit to within eight points early in the fourth quarter but a 10-0 surge by Lithuania ended all doubts.
