Russia Get Third In A Row, Hungary Fight Relegation

Another towering display of 23 points and 16 rebounds by forward Brigitta Barta wasn't enough to prevent Hungary from falling to a crushing 74-54 loss to Russia and being dumped into the Classification round to fight for their Division A status.

While disappointing, it left Hungary coach Ezster Debreceni bemoaning her lack of inside presence to support her star player although she also claimed that Barta still had some improvement to make, despite her big numbers.
