GAME REPORT

18.06.2014
Sizzling Croatia Sail Past Bulgaria
14. Luca Ivankovic (Croatia)
Luca Ivankovic led Croatia in the game against Bulgaria

A red-hot shooting performance from Croatia paved the way for their third win in the EuroBasket Women 2015 2nd Qualification Round as they stormed to a 78-51 home success against Bulgaria in Group F.

Maintaining their unbeaten record and at the same time ensuring their opponents remain without a victory to their name, Croatia were always on top in Slavonski Brod.

With Luca Ivankovic looking unstoppable at times, the hosts were impressively smooth right from the tip-off and eased their way into what proved to be an unassailable 24-14 lead.

With Bulgaria unable to make any impression during the second quarter and down by 14 points at the interval, things became even worse when the action resumed.

Croatia rammed home their superiority with a powerful 11-2 start thanks to Ivankovic wreaking havoc in the paint and that effectively took the game out of the reach of the visitors.

If there was any last lingering doubt, it was quickly eradicated via an 18-6 start to the final quarter.

Ivankovic racked up 20 points and seven rebounds, with her team-mate Jelena Ivezic adding 16 points and five assists.

Donneka Hodges fought something of a lone battle in the scoring stakes for Bulgaria by recording 16 points.

 

COACH QUOTES

Quotes: Croatia vs. Bulgaria
Radostina Dimitrova, Bulgaria

"We did not play like we were supposed to play. This time there was more defence on me. We still expect to win the next game of course, because we always play to win."

Luca Ivankovic, Croatia
"I scored 20 points, but this is a team sport and my points are not mine, but my teammates. We did everything we agreed upon, which is excellent since this game was crucial."

Georgi Boshkov, Bulgaria, Head Coach
"Congratulations to the Croatian team, I think Croatia is already on to the European Championship. I never believed we could lose a game by 27 points. I think that in the last game the 3point shot was the key, and this time we did not have as many, so we lost with a big difference while also having trouble with the tall Croatian players."

Braslav Turić, Croatia, Head Coach
"We were surprised by the player Dimitrova last game in Bulgaria, this time we also decided to stop their 3 point shot. We think we can win the game against Israel in Israel and have first position in the group."

COACH QUOTES

18.06.2014
Quotes: Croatia vs. Bulgaria
Radostina Dimitrova, Bulgaria

"We did not play like we were supposed to play. This time there was more defence on me. We still expect to win the next game of course, because we always play to win."

Luca Ivankovic, Croatia
"I scored 20 points, but this is a team sport and my points are not mine, but my teammates. We did everything we agreed upon, which is excellent since this game was crucial."

Georgi Boshkov, Bulgaria, Head Coach
"Congratulations to the Croatian team, I think Croatia is already on to the European Championship. I never believed we could lose a game by 27 points. I think that in the last game the 3point shot was the key, and this time we did not have as many, so we lost with a big difference while also having trouble with the tall Croatian players."

Braslav Turić, Croatia, Head Coach
"We were surprised by the player Dimitrova last game in Bulgaria, this time we also decided to stop their 3 point shot. We think we can win the game against Israel in Israel and have first position in the group."
