The 2009 EuroBasket Women champions Sandrine Gruda and Celine Dumerc of France headed the All-Tournament Team in Riga along with Most Valuable Player winner Evanthia Maltsi of Greece.
Gruda led the champions France in scoring (15.4 ppg) and rebounding (7.7 rpg) while shooting 50 percent from the field.
Struggling Latvia finished their EuroBasket Women campaign with a 67-59 victory over Slovakia on Saturday to capture seventh place.
After four straight losses, including narrow defeats to Russia in the Quarter-Finals and Italy in Friday's Classification Round game, the tournament hosts signed off with a win.
A EuroBasket Women that promised so much for Latvia and Slovakia has ultimately delivered no rewards on the court.
Both have given the competition some incredible rides, especially in their Qualifying Round meeting on June 13 when Pokey Chatman's team upset the Latvians.
After losing four straight games and failing to qualify for the 2010 FIBA World Championship Women, Latvia national team coach Ainars Zvirgzdins announced he will be stepping down from his post after the 2009 EuroBasket Women.
"First of all, I want to say sorry and apologise to all the supporters. I will not be the head coach anymore. When the team loses, it's always the head coach's fault. And I recognise that," Zvirgzdins told a press conference following Latvia's 68-66 overtime loss against Italy in the Classification Round.
