GAME REPORT


Russia Sink Slovenia To Top Group A

10. Tatiana Sema (Russia)
Tatiana Sema was major presence under the boards for Russia

Russia wrapped up their first round campaign at the U18 European Championship Women in style as they claimed a 72-42 victory against the previously unbeaten Slovenia to claim pole position in Group A.

Turning Point: There wasn't once since Russia were red-hot from the tip and out of sight after just ten minutes when they romped into a commanding 24-6 lead by the end of the opening period.

Game Heroes: Tatiana Sema was once again immense in the paint and corralled 14 boards, four steals and three blocked three shots. Anastasia Kuplinova enjoyed a strong shooting performance with 12 points.

Stats Don't Lie: Slovenia were abject inside and made a woeful 23.1% from two-point range which wasn't going to allow them to keep pace with their opponents, let alone provide an opportunity to win.

The Bottom Line: Both teams advance to the next stage and while Slovenia will lick their wounds after a severe mauling, they had already accomplished their immediate priority of retaining their Division A status. They can play better and Russia can be satisfied with their work having only narrowly lost to France in overtime so far.
