Zahui, Sweden Overpower Belgium
Powerful center Amanda Zahui reached yet another double-double for a second day in the row with 19 points and 15 rebounds to lead Sweden to victory over Belgium 56-45.
None of the Belgium players could reach double digits in scoring against Sweden and as a result their team suffered a second loss in the U18 European Championship Women 2010 tournament.
Good shooting from the outside let Sweden built a 10 points advantage over their opponents early in the second quarter.
Sweden extended their lead to 38-21 by half time with some help from Mia Hakim who made all three attempts from behind the arc and the winners then stayed ahead for the rest of the game.
