After storming into a 23-12 lead late in the first quarter, Montenegro put the result beyond doubt in the second frame by outscoring Estonia 29-13 for a commanding 52-27 advantage.

Playing without star forward Jelena Dubljevic, who has a back injury, Montenegro got 23 points from Iva Perovanovic.

Jelena Skerovic had 19 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds.

Estonia suffered their seventh defeat in as many games.
