Russia captured another convincing win in the U16 European Championship Women in Greece, with a 88-39 rout of Lithuania.
A three pointer by Emmi Leino with only 21 seconds left on the clock decided a very hard fought game between Lithuania and Finland. Finland took the game by the score of 50-48 claiming their first win of the tournament. For Lithuania who had the chance to tie the game in the final seconds it was the second straight loss.
In the second game of Group A Sweden were able to collect a 61-55 victory over Lithuania. Paulina Hersler showed a very impressing performance as she scored 33 points (more than the half of all Swedish points) and grabbed 13 rebounds.
Lithuania swept Finland in a couple of friendly games ahead of the U16 European Championship for Women.
The Baltic side hosted the two contests in Marijampolėje and won the first encounter, 92-69.
