Group D winners Sweden put an exclamation point on a terrific EuroBasket Women Qualification Round with a 73-62 victory over Germany.

Louice Halvarsson had 20 points and six rebounds for the Swedes, who had already sealed first place and clinched a spot in next year's Final Round in France.

Sweden lost just once in seven Qualification Round games while Germany, who competed at the EuroBasket in Poland last year but failed to make it to France, ended up 3-5 this summer.

Spain finished second to Sweden in the pool and also clinched a spot in France.

Sweden only led Germany 43-38 at half-time and 61-53 with eight minutes remaining.

They went on a 9-0 run to take a firm grip on the contest.

Frida Eldebrink finished with 16 points for Sweden.

Sarah Austmann poured in 17 points for Germany, who also got 15 from Katharina Fikiel.
