GAME REPORT

Dutch Prevail In Neighborhood Battle

Naomi Halman poured in 17 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Netherlands as they beat visitors Belgium 74-69 on Wednesday.

In a Group C game of the EuroBasket Women Qualification Round, the Dutch used a strong first quarter as a platform for victory.

Meindert van Veen's team outscored the Belgians 19-7 in the opening frame, including a 10-0 run to begin the contest.

After trailing 36-22 at half-time, Belgium showed signs of life.

The visitors went on a 10-2 spurt to start the second half and reduced the arrears to 38-32 with a basket by Laurence Van Malderen.

The hosts rediscovered their offensive rhythm, however, and went back in front by 14.

In the fourth quarter, the Netherlands outscored the Belgians 23-19 and won by 15.

The Netherlands tasted victory for the first time in four games while Belgium fell to 0-4.

COACH QUOTES

27.06.2012
Quotes Netherlands vs. Belgium

Laurence van Malderen, Belgium:
"We didn't play well together, we never found our game. We gave up to many three-pointers and  were tool late with our first step in defense."

Benny Mertens, Belgium coach:
"They got us in the first quarter. After that it was a matter of playing catch-up. We have a very young team that has a lot to learn."

Tanya Bröring, Netherlands:
"Finally we showed everybody who we are. After three losses we needed a win. Our aggressive play made the difference."

Meindert van Veen, Netherlands coach:
"Our great start pulled us through this game. And just when it seemed they got back into it, we made some big shots. A great win."
