GAME REPORT

Slovakia Take Giant Stride Forward

15. Romana Vynuchalova (Slovak Republic)
Romana Vynuchalova led the Slovak comeback in Belgium with a game-high 14 points

The Slovak Republic gave their chances of punching a ticket to EuroBasket Women next summer a huge boost with an essential 63-54 win in Belgium, as their second-half defence reigned supreme.

In a tight three-way fight for the two precious top positions in Qualification Round Group C, Slovakia coach Ivan Vojtko and his players capitalized on Slovenia losing in Lithuania, although it was far from a straight forward affair for them in Brussels.

The visitors had to dig themselves out of a hole, having trailed 40-32, but once they turned the defensive screw they managed to blunt the Belgian offence in a spectacular way.

The hosts managed just nine points during the third quarter and the same total in the final period as they imploded after looking well-placed to record a first win of a quite disastrous campaign.

The additional experience of Slovakia was also key, with their superior composure on offence helping them ease away in the final stages.

Romana Vynuchalova claimed a game-high 14 points for the winning team while only Noemie Mayombo could scrape into double digits for Belgium.

COACH QUOTES

04.07.2012
Quotes Belgium vs. Slovak Republic

Slovak Republic Head Coach Ivan Vojtko
"In the beginning we were good on defence but were not able to score from easy positions and our offence was bad during first the 25 minutes. Then by putting Katerina Tetemendova on the court, things changed and we found the missing element in our game to change the situation."

Belgium Head Coach Benny Mertens
"We had too many turnovers and were not strong enough in the moments that we needed the necessary fighting spirit, which resulted in a bad third quarter."

Slovak Republic player Katerina Tetemondova
"We had a bad start but finally we became better on offence. I am very happy with this important win."

Belgium player Noemie Mayombo
"We had a good first half but in the second half they became more aggressive and we were not able to handle the pressure."
