EUROBASKET WOMEN QUALIFIERS
|21-year-old Sabine Niedola came up on Wednesday with one of her best performances with the senior Latvia team|
Sabine Niedola produced her best performance of the summer to lead Latvia to a resounding 70-44 home win against EuroBasket Women Qualification Round Group E minnows Luxembourg.
Latvia continue edging ever closer to cementing a qualifying spot.
The forward not only harvested a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds, but also managed to avoid any turnovers in an impressive display, supported by frontcourt team-mates Liene Jansone and Zane Tamane.
Indeed it was the superior inside presence of the home team who destroyed Luxembourg in the paint.
Latvia pulled down a mammoth 59 rebounds.
The visitors always had an uphill struggle to challenge heading into the game, but that quickly became something of a mountain after being on the wrong end of a 20-9 opening quarter.
Nadia Mossong was the only player to achieve double-digits for Luxembourg with 14 points, while Latvia know wins in Greece and Finland during their last remaining games would send them to France next year.
