GAME REPORT

20.09.2003
Czech Republic 104 Israel 67

The Czech Republic brushed aside Israel on Saturday night for their second victory in as many games.

Lucie Blahuskova
Lucie Blahuskova poured in 21 points, grabbed six rebounds and had five assists as the Czechs prevailed against another weak side in Group, having hammered Greece on opening day on Friday.

The Czechs grabbed a stranglehold on the match in the second quarter when they extended their five-point advantage to 14 (53-39).

The result isn't a surprise, with Israel expected to struggle in this tournament. They were hammered by France in their opening game.

Life gets a little bit harder for the winner of this game, however. On Sunday, the Czechs take on Serbia & Montenegro.

Israel, meanwhile, may have their best chance off getting a win in this tournament when they take on hosts Greece.

Quotes Israel - Czech Republic

Jan Bobrovsky, Head Coach, Czech Republic

"We were positive and we played a great first half and even improved in the second half.

"They shot the ball well and played good one on one basketball in the first half. But we got used to their offense in the second half and played better."

Moshe Weinkrantz, Head Coach, Israel

"This was another difficult game for us and we just have to prepare for tomorrow."

Limor Mizrachi, Israel

"We played a good team who are one of the favourites to finish in the top four. We finished the game badly but we knew it would be tough."
