Poland Boss Koziorowicz Resigns

Poland coach Krzysztof Koziorowicz has resigned following his team's Qualifying Round exit at the EuroBasket Women, the country's basketball federation has confirmed.

The Poles, who beat Greece and Hungary in Group B in Liepaja and needed just one victory in Riga to the advance to the Quarter-Finals, lost to Slovakia, Spain and the struggling Czech Republic to crash out of the competition.
