07.09.2005

Lithuania's march towards the last eight of EuroBasket Women continued apace on Wednesday as they crushed Romania 92-56.

Following on from their defeat of defending champions Russia on Tuesday, Lithuania again impressed in Izmir.

The first quarter was surprisingly edged 21-20 by Romania but Lithuania dominated thereafter, aided by a 12-point run around the interval.

Ausra Bimbaite poured in a team-high 18 points for the victors while Iveta Marcauskaite dragged down six rebounds.

Defeat was harsh on Romania's Gabriela Toma as she managed 18 points and 11 rebounds.

Romania have yet to win a game, suffering five consecutive defeats.
