Spain Champions

It took them almost 10 days, but Spain finally found top gear at the final of Umcor U18 European Championship Women on Sunday.

Spain stuttered through preliminary round play and were less than their best in the quarter-final round and semi finals.

Torrens "X" Factor For Spain

Spain may not go into Sunday's Umcor European Championship U18 Women final as medal favourites, but if this team knows anything, it is how to win.

U16 European champions in 2004 and 2005, this talented Spanish side moved to the U18 level in 2006 with an unbeaten record in official FIBA Europe competition.
