GAME REPORT

Italy Cruise To Victory In Espoo

Italy kept alive their EuroBasket Women qualifying push with a 68-52 win over Finland on Wednesday night.

Having played more games than third-placed Turkey in Group B, Italy took advantage of the Turks' loss to Poland with a comfortable victory in Espoo, consolidating second place.

Niina Laaksonen (Finland)
Niina Laaksonen had a double-double
Having established a 35-28 lead by half-time, Italy turned up the heat after the break, and Simona Ballardini's lay-up with 2:12 left in the third put them 51-36 up and in control of the game.

Finland did not roll over however, and scored the final six points of the quarter to keep Italy honest.

However, there was no way back for Finland and Emanuela Ramon's lay-up capped a 10-2 Italy run that killed the game off as a contest going into the final three minutes.

Ballardini led Italy with 14 points while Kathrin Ress added 13.

Tiina Sten finished as the game's top scorer with 16 for Finland, while Niina Laaksonen had 11 and 10 rebounds.

Quotes Finland vs. Italy
Giampiero Ticchi, Italy coach:

"My team played well. I think this group can achieve a lot, if they can keep up the same defense and intensity which we saw tonight."

Simona Ballardini, Italy player:

"Finland's defense was aggressive, but we were still able to score and get the win."

Domingo Diaz, Finland coach:

"Italy were the better team tonight. They pressed a lot and played hard for 40 minutes. We simply couldn't keep up with them."

Kia Ignatius, Finland player:

"Italy was good. We fought and gave everything we had, but it didn't work."
