19.07.2007

Belgium bounced back from Wednesday's defeat to Spain by edging Greece, 57-53.

Sara Leemans led the Belgians in scoring with 12 points but it was an all-round team-effort, with Marjorie Carpreaux and Virginie Michiels adding 11 points apiece.

Belgium took a 34-30 half-time lead but the Greeks kept within striking distance.

With eight minutes remaining Eva Katopodi's layup cut the deficit to 49-46 but that is as close as Greece got to upsetting Belgium.

Belgium were outrebounded 36-24.

Anna Spyridopoulou had a game-high 16 points in  defeat.
