Portugal Too Much For Great Britain

Sonia Reis scored 29 points and pulled in 15 rebounds as Portugal went on to defeat Great Britain 72-54 in the EuroBasket Women Qualifying Round on Saturday evening.

Portugal stormed out to a 26-15 lead, thanks largely to some  strong inside play from Reis, and early indications were that the hosts would be in for a long night.
