Slovenia closed their EuroBasket Women 2015 2nd Qualification Round campaign with a comfortable 66-57 win over Luxembourg in Oberanven on Wednesday.

Neither team will advance to the finals next summer but Slovenia took third spot in Group A and ensured Luxembourg finish without a win, thanks to a balanced offensive display which saw three players finish with 12 points.

One of those players, Maja Erkic, hit the jumper that gave the visitors an early 14-6 advantage and allowed them to take the upper hand.

Luxembourg never led but kept pace, thanks to a game-high 15 points from Lynn Schreiner, and were within three points midway through the third period.

But a series of mini-runs, punctuated by Luxembourg turnovers that were punished on the fastbreak, proved to be the difference late on as Slovenia were able to open up their biggest lead, 64-50, in the final period.
