GAME REPORT

27.06.2012
Sweden Return To Group D Summit

Sweden hit back from an early deficit to beat Germany and move back into first place in Group D of the EuroBasket Women Qualification Round.

Frida Eldebrink remained red hot, pouring in 21 points for the Swedes as they improved to 3-1.

Both Sweden and a team they have beaten, Spain, are 3-1.

Germany slumped to 2-2 with the setback.

The visitors led by eight points in the first quarter but weren't able to add to the advantage.

Instead, Sweden fought back and went in front to stay with a 10-0 run to start the second half.

Louice Halvarsson and Kadidja Andersson ignited the decisive spurt with jump shots.

Germany, who got 19 points from Anne Breitreiner, stayed within striking distances but got no closer than four points the rest of the way.

The Swedes did a lot of their damage at the free-throw line, making 19 of 23 (82.6%) compared to Germany's five of 16 (31.3%). The Germans were also hurt by their 25 turnovers.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes Sweden vs. Germany

Andreas Wagner, Germany coach:
"Congratulations to Sweden, they played well. I thought we started well and were on to something, but Sweden is a strong team and put a lot of pressure on us. We had 25 turnovers and you can't win on the road with that. Now the group is very tough with many teams involved, but we want to win every game and qualify for the European Championships."

Lars Johansson, Sweden coach:
"I think Germany is a very good team and this was the toughest game we've played, including when we lost to Romania. I'm very happy that we beat Germany by ten points. We started well, but just couldn't make any shots. But we are in a very good physical shape, and they got more tired than we did. We wore them down in the third and fourth quarter."

Elin Eldebrink, Sweden point guard:
"We were getting open shots, but couldn't make them. We got a little bit frustrated, but not so frustrated that it affected us. Then, in the second half, I can't explain it, but somehow we just started playing really good defense and stopped Germany. When that happens you get in a flow and you get confidence and then we made some shots too. We did the same thing against Bulgaria, it feels really good."
