Andrea Vilaro showed why she made the All Tournament Team with another stellar display as she claimed a superb double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds.
A typically sparkling display from center Emma Meesseman was the highlight of another stunning Belgium performance as they booked their place in the Final with a 73-58 demolition of France.
Meesseman was scintillating with 18 points, 15 rebounds and 5 blocks to cement her place as one of the leading contenders for tournament MVP.
Belgium star Emma Meesseman produced arguably the biggest performance of the entire tournament as she helped her team book a semi-final spot against France or Turkey with a 74-60 win over Greece.
It was a truly breathtaking effort that left a beaming Belgium Coach Daniel Goethals in awe of her final line of 19 points, 16 rebounds and 5 blocks - all against Greek star Artemis Spanou.
"The most beautiful moment of the game" is how tournament MVP contender Julie Vanloo described the thrill of dishing an assist to her team-mate in the dying moments as Belgium topped Group E with a 63-50 win over Serbia.
Anybody fearing another effortlessly masterful display of 24 points might go to the head of Vanloo can forget it.
