Russia finished the Global Vision U18 European Championship Women with a win against Lithuania, 57-52, that gave them the 13th place at this tournament, far from what their expectations were at the beginning.
Russia have found their rhythm and they put on a show against Ukraine, 106-51, becoming the first team to score over 100 points at the Global Vision U18 European Championship.
Russia defeated Slovakia by a 22-point margin, 79-57, on the fourth day of the Classification Round for 12th to 16th place to gain absolute control of the situation in the battle to avoid relegation.
For a born winner, losing is tough. And it's even harder, when you have entered a competition with high expectations.
