Serbia celebrate their victory over Montenegro
Serbia claimed an important victory over Montenegro, moving to a 3-2 record.

Serbia ended Montenegro's perfect record in Group B of the EuroBasket Women Qualification Round with a 72-56 victory.

The hosts finished strong in each half to pick up a big psychological victory as they improve to 3-2, while Montenegro drop to 4-1.

Having found themselves 16-15 down at end of the first quarter, Serbia scored the first 10 points of the second to go 25-16 up on Jelena Milovanovic's three-pointer.

The lead stood at seven, 31-24, at half-time, but Montenegro quickly drew level with Jelena Dubljevic's jump-shot capping a 7-0 run.

The visitors kept pace until late in the third quarter when a seven-point spurt from Serbia gave them a 47-41 edge.

Serbia then made sure in the final stanza, with a 9-1 run giving them a 64-49 lead on Sara Krnjic's free-throws with 46 ticks left.

Milica Dabovic led Serbia with 22 points and 11 rebounds, while Tamara Radocaj added 16 and seven assists.
