Czechs Throttle Swedes In Friendly


Eva Viteckova netted 24 points as the Czech Republic national women's team defeated Sweden 86-51 in a friendly match on Monday in Brno.

The game was effectively over by the end of the first quarter when the Czechs, gold medalists at the EuroBasket Women two years ago in Turkey, held a 32-11 lead.

Hana Machova added 12 points for Jan Bobrovsky's team.

Sweden are preparing for the additional qualifying tournament for this year's EuroBasket, which is to be staged in Italy.

The Swedes are in Group C with Ukraine and Slovakia, and play their first additional qualifying game on August 29 at home to the Ukrainians.

The Czech Republic and Sweden play each other again Tuesday.
