Poland Survive Scare In Bosnia

Poland survived a a major scare at winless Bosnia-Herzegovina to win 74-68 and keep their qualifying campaign for next year's EuroBasket in Riga on track.

The Poles improved to 3-1 with the triumph but remained a game behind Turkey in second place in Group B after the Turks won their game at Italy on Wednesday, 63-55.

Bosnia's Azra Becirovic had a game-high 22 points, including two on a jump shot three minutes into the fourth quarter to give her team a 65-64 lead.

The Poles replied with two free throws from Paulina Pawlak and a jumper from Agnieszka Bibrzycka and finished the game on a 10-3 run.

Daria Mieloszynska led Poland with 17 points while Bibrzycka and Ewelina Kobryn each poured in 14.

Poland were just one of nine from long range but shot the ball extremely well at the free throw line, making 17 of 19 (89.4%).

The Bosnians have now lost all four of their games in qualifying.
