GAME REPORT


Romanians Thrash Finns

Romania romped to their second straight victory in the EuroBasket Women Relegation Round.

The Romanians followed up their demolition of Bosnia and Herzegovina with an 80-49 drubbing of the visiting Finns.

Finland, who led Great Britain by 14 points at the end of the first quarter before losing 63-61 on Sunday, jumped out to a 16-9 advantage late in the first frame at Romania.

Tiina Sten hit back-to-back shots from behind the arc for the seven-point lead.

Instead of building on that great start, though, the Finns allowed Romania to come back.

In fact, the home side reeled off the next 18 points for a 27-16 lead midway through the second quarter.

By half-time, the advantage had ballooned to 44-29. There was no way back for the visitors after Romania scored the first 10 points of the second half.

Maria Pascalau had 21 points and 11 rebounds for Romania.
