Finland Down Romania To Make Step Towards Survival
Finland took a giant step towards remaining in Division A by hammering previously unbeaten Romania 87-69 on Friday.

The Finns, who began the EuroBasket Women Relegation Round with back-to-back losses to Great Britain and Romania, have now won three straight games and hope to seal their place in the top flight with a victory in their final clash against winless Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Finns Stun Britain

Finland edged ahead of Great Britain into second place in the EuroBasket Women Relegation Round with a 60-55 triumph over the Brits in Worcester.

After falling to Mark Clark's Brits in Finland in their opener and then losing in a heavy defeat at Romania, the Finns have rebounded by beating Bosnia and Herzegovina and now Britain.
