GAME REPORT


Serbia Squeeze Past Slovakia

14. Dragana Stankovic (Serbia)
Dragana Stankovic starred with a double-double for Serbia on her U20 debut

Serbia took a big stride towards qualification from Group C with a hard-fought 70-67 success against Slovakia in their U20 European Championship Women opener in Udine on Thursday.

Turning Point: A couple of calamitous plays from Kristina Machova - a missed open lay-up and an airballed three-pointer - led to momentum-shifting scores for Serbia in the third quarter.

Game Hero: Dragana Stankovic dominated inside swatting away four shots while pulling down 15 rebounds to go with a game-high 20 points.

Stats Don't Lie: Serbia's five blocks - four of them from Stankovic - were a real deterrent for Slovakia, who managed just a solitary block.

The Bottom Line: Many considered these to be the stronger teams in Group C and the winners of this game were always going to be favourites to win the group moving forward.
