|Anna Shchetina paced Russia with 16 points and eight boards|
England looked overwhelmed in the first half and didn't recover from a 21-9 first quarter from their opponents, who won silver last summer in Bucharest.
In the ascendancy, Russia piled on the agony during a one-sided opening twenty minutes and with more depth and poise, they stormed into a commanding 46-20 lead at the interval.
Whilst England finally found some offence when they returned to the floor to outscore Russia 20-17 in the penultimate period, the damage had already been done as Russia engaged cruise control.
Anna Shchetina continued her red-hot form from the recent FIBA U19 World Championship for Women with a strong display in the paint, contributing 16 points and eight rebounds, whilst teammate Tatiana Sema hauled down 10 boards.
England had an off-night shooting-wise, including Jay-Ann Bravo-Harriott, who finished with 17 points on 35% field-goal shooting for the losing team.
