Agnies Bibrzyscka
Agnies Bibrzyscka scored 18 points as Poland clinched their third win in four games at the European Championships with a 80-45 rout of Israel.

The Poles will play in the quarter-finals of this competition and Tuesday's result is no surprise with Israel yet to even win a game here in Greece.

Israel, who trailed 22-11 after the first quarter and 37-28 by half-time, were well and truly out of it by the end of the third quarter when the Poles extended their lead to 63-38.

Israel were completely overrun on the boards as they were outrebounded 51-28.

Poland finish their Group A stage with a tough game against the Czech Republic on Wednesday while Israel finish against Serbia & Montenegro.
