Montenegro and Sweden remained perfect in EuroBasket Women Division B qualifying action on Wednesday.
The team from the Balkans won their fifth straight game steamrolling Iceland (1-4), 92-72.
Portugal had hoped to start their EuroBasket Women Division B campaign with a big win against Sweden on Wednesday but they were blown out by the Scandinavians.
The Swedes cruised to a 78-56 triumph in São Paio Gramaço, in the north of Portugal.
Sweden's women will attempt to win promotion to EuroBasket Division A later this summer and one thing is for certain.
This team will not have the near-impossible task it faced last year in qualifying games when it took on excellent sides in Croatia and Germany, teams that eventually reached the EuroBasket Women, and traditional power Poland.
