The Netherlands kicked off their Group C campaign with an emphatic 86-54 win over Lithuania in the U16 European Championship Women in Bulgaria.

Lithuania won Division B last year and scored the first basket of the game, but they did not lead again.

The Dutch team held their opponents scoreless for nearly five minutes afterwards, during which the Netherlands went on a 16-0 run to surge clear.

The lead increased to 21 later in the half as the Netherlands continued to force turnovers and push their opponent's misses.

The Dutch team were relentless in the second half as they showed their depth, resting their starters while pushing the lead past 30 points.

Four players ended with double-figures, led by Laura Westerik (19 points) and Janis Ndiba (18 points, 7 rebounds).

Laurita Jurciute top-scored for Lithuania with 16 points.
