Out But Not Down

Romania may have bowed out of the 2007 EuroBasket Women after three straight defeats in Group B in Lanciano, but their third showing on Europe's biggest stage in the past 20 years was definitely a learning experience.

Romania Push Belgium To Limit

Belgium used a 17-0 spurt spanning the third and fourth quarters and survived a late barrage of three-pointers to collect a 74-71 victory over Romania and finish Group B action of the 2007 EuroBasket Women a perfect 3-0.

Ann Wauters led the way with 20 points and 10 rebounds while Anke De Mondt had 13 points and four assists, Kathy Wambe added 10 points and four assists and Laurence Van Malderen chipped in 11 points and seven rebounds off the bench.
