GAME REPORT

14.07.2012
Serbia Beat Estonia, Punch Ticket
23. Ana Dabovic (Serbia)
Ana Dabovic ended a remarkable campaign for Serbia by scoring 21 points against Estonia

Serbia clinched their place in next year's EuroBasket Women with a 97-58 victory over Estonia on Saturday.

The Blues improved to 6-2 with the victory - the same record as Montenegro and Poland in Group B.

Montenegro finished first and Serbia second ahead of Poland by using a goal differential tie-breaker, taking into account the games between the three teams.

Serbia moved into a strong position in their previous game when they won a thriller against the Poles, 67-62.

That result left them only needing to win against Estonia, a side that hadn't tasted victory in seven previous Qualification Round games.

Estonia led briefly at the start of the contest, but Serbia turned on the style and outscored them 30-15 in the opening frame and never turned back.

Milica Dabovic had six of her 21 points in the first period for Serbia.

Veteran power forward/center Jelena Maksimovic also scored 21 in the contest for the winners.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes Estonia vs. Serbia

Estonia Head Coach Jaanus Levkoi
"It was good to play against top European teams. It is good to learn. We saw where we are compared to others. Our young team continued to develop and the last 3 games against strong opponents, we played well."

Estonia player Merike Anderson
"From game to game our team got better. Montenegro, Serbia, Poland were different class. Today Serbia showed how much they wanted this. Even when they were leading big, they still pressured us."

Serbia player Milica Dabovic
"We just started together and we are not ready for the European Championship just yet."
