GAME REPORT

24.06.2012
Germany Storm To Win Over Bulgaria
5. Anne Breitreiner (Germany)
Anne Breitreiner led the way  for Germany, making 10 of her 16 shots from the field to finish with 26 points

Germany remained in the thick of the fight for a top-two finish in Group D of the EuroBasket Women Qualification Round after claiming a big win over Bulgaria.

In the Sunday's game in Oberhausen, the hosts' Anne Breitreiner erupted for 26 points and Germany broke open a tight contest in the third quarter before recording a 77-56 victory.

Beaten heavily in midweek by Spain, the Germans bounced back to improve to 2-1 while Bulgaria slumped to a third consecutive setback.

The Bulgarians had their noses in front at 31-30 late in the first half after 1.95m power forward Vera Perostiyska scored with a lay-up.

Dorothea Richter answered with one of her own on a fast break for Germany and shooting guard Breitreiner followed with a jumper to put the home side on top, 34-31.

Perostiyska replied for Bulgaria with a jump shot, taking her points haul to 14, but Breitreiner was in her rhythm and nailed a three-ball at the other end for a 37-33 German lead.

The basket took her points tally to 15.

Germany scored four of the next six points and went to the changing rooms in front, 41-35.

After the restart, the Germans pressed home their advantage.

Katharina Fikiel started proceedings with a jumper on a fast break and Andreas Wagner's side then got a three-point play from Sarah Austmann.

On top by 11, Germany stayed in command the rest of the way.

Romy Bar had a game-high six steals to go with her eight points for Germany, who will now travel to Sweden to face Lars Johansson's team.

Bulgaria will go for their first at home to Romania.

COACH QUOTES

24.06.2012
Quotes Germany vs. Bulgaria

Jose Maria Buceta, head coach Bulgaria
"Germany played a very good match today, I want to congratulate them. They had a good shooting night and deserve this win. We faught well but could not keep the same level after the break. Nevertheless we will play hard and concentrated in the next matches."

Bulgaria player Vera Perostiyska
"We played a very good first half today even after being down by six points at halftime. Maybe we were to pleased with our game because we let them control the game in the second half and could not focus again. It seemed as if we were not motivated anymore. Now our chances to qualify are very small, but we won´t give up till the last second of qualification."

Andreas Wagner, head coach Germany
"We could keep the pressure high during most parts of the game. This was the decisive factor today. Anne Breitreiner played an outstanding game and carried us over some weaker minutes. Now there will be a very big game in Sweden and we will have to fully concentrate on that."

Germany shooting guard Anne Breitreiner
"I´m very pleased with our game today. The team helped me a lot to get good shots and penetrations, and fortunately today I was able to score. But everybody of us wanted this win and now we are in a pretty good situation. The game in Sweden is very important and of course we will give our best to win there."
