Czech Republic Top In Group A

07 September 2005

The Czech Republic will go into the EuroBasket Women quarter-finals in Ankara as the only unbeaten team in the competition after thrashing Latvia on Wednesday.

Eva Viteckova poured in 18 points as the Czechs won 76-45 for their fifth triumph in as many Group A games.

No team has come close to upsetting Jan Bobrovsky's Czechs so far similar to their tournament two years ago when they suffered their only defeat in the final to Russia.

The Czechs are loaded with offensive weapons, and Bobrovsky also goes deep to his bench which means constant defensive pressure which most teams are unable to cope with.

Latvia struggled, turning the ball over 20 times in the game. The Czechs also savaged the Baltic country on the boards, outrebounding the Latvians 46-34 in the contest.
