GAME REPORT

30.06.2012
Slovenian Spurt Overwhelms Belgium

10. Teja Oblak (Slovenia)
Slovenia had four players in double figures, Teja Oblak leading the bunch with 19.

Slovenia used a huge third quarter to see off Belgium 75-56 in Group C of the EuroBasket Women Qualification Round.

Slovenia had held a narrow 33-32 advantage at half-time, but their lead was 53-37 by the time the final stanza began.

Belgium, winless in the group, began brightly, and were leading 15-11 on Jana Raman's jump-shot with 3:06 left in the first quarter.

However, Slovenia were up by half-time as Noemie Mayombo's jump-shot missed on the buzzer.

Belgium did take the lead with an early three from Laurence Van Malderen in the second half, but it was about the only bright spot for the visitors as Slovenia responded with a devastating 18-0 run, leading 53-37 on a lay-up from Sandra Pirsic at the end of the third quarter.

Belgium got the gap back to 10, 59-49, on a lay-up from Miete Celus midway through the fourth quarter, but Slovenia quickly responded, with a three from Ziva Zdolsek making it 70-55 with 1:46 to go.

Teja Oblak led Slovenia with 19 points, while Pirsic added 15, and Nika Baric and Erkic 11 each.

Val Melderen led Belgium with 16 points and Emma Meesseman added 14.

Slovenia improve to 4-1 in the group, with Belgium at 0-5.

COACH QUOTES

30.06.2012
Quotes Slovenia vs. Belgium

Belgium coach Benny Mertens:
"We received 29 points on our turnovers. After that it is difficult to win a game. That was a key today. The third quarter was very bad for our team. Slovenia outscored us 20-5, so it was hard to win."

Belgium player Laurence Van Malderen:
"We had a good beginning, but then we lost our concentration. We lost the game because of Slovenia's rebounds, our stupid fouls and turnovers. We have very young team. In some moments these girls don't have much experience. I hope that we will win one game soon."

Slovenia coach Boris Zrinski:
"Congratulations to our girls. After we lost against the Slovak Republic it was hard to concentrate. That game sent us far away mentally. That we also saw today against Belgium. In the first half we tortured ourselves. In the second half we showed the right character and won the game with aggressive defence."

Slovenia player Teja Oblak:
"Before the beginning of the qualifications for EuroBasket Women 2013 no one believed that Slovenia would have four wins after five games. In the first half we played very bad, but in the third quarter we showed our game and won."
