GAME REPORT


Latvia Finish Qualifying Round In Style

Latvia capped off their Group E qualifying round campaign in style with a 60-47 victory over Germany.

In a game that had no implications on the standings with the Latvians having already secured a place in the quarter-finals, the effort would not have been greater had a medal been at stake.

Martina Weber (Germany)
Martina Weber led Germany with 11 points and six rebounds.
The Baltic side took an early 23-13 lead, but Imre Szittya exhorted his players on and they fought back held a 32-31 advantage at half-time.

A Martina Weber jump shot gave them their final lead at 34-33 early in the second half.

Gunta Basko drove in for a layup, Ieva Kublina followed with a jumper and Liene Jansone added a pair of free throws.

Latvia would end up scoring 13 consecutive points and they would remain in command the rest of the way.

“This was a pretty ugly game,” said Zane Tamane of Latvia. “This definitely wasn’t our best game. Germany are a tough team, they have a lot of talent.

“We saw that by them beating the Czechs.”

Basko had 16 points to pace the Latvians with Anete Jekabsone-Zogota adding 15.
