The Netherlands had no difficulties to beat Germany 64-38 in their U16 European Championship Women opening match.
The game started with both teams showing a very low shooting percentage, and what promised to be a balanced match, transformed into a walk for the Netherlands.
The German players never seemed able to get on the right pace to create problems to their opponents.
The 10 points advantage at the end of the first quarter grew constantly during the rest of the match.
Both teams struggled to get their shooting percentages up in the game played at the University Sports Hall.
Emese Hoff had a double-double of 23 points and 11 rebounds, leading the Netherland to the victory, along with Janis Ndiba who contributed 18 points and 10 rebounds.
Emma Stach was the best German scorer with 17 points.
