Lithuania Pull Away From Belgium In The Fourth

12. Giedre Paugaite (Lithuania)
Giedre Paugaite had a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds for Lithuania

Lithuania won 77-62 at Belgium on Saturday night for their third victory in Group C of the EuroBasket Women Qualification Round.

The Baltic side got their noses in front late in the second quarter.

Sandra Linkeviciene hit a jumper and Greta Sniokaite followed with a pair of free-throws for a 32-28 lead.

Gintare Petronyte took her points haul to 15 with a basket shortly before half-time to give the Lithuanians a 35-30 lead.

A lay-up by Sofie Hendrickx for Belgium left the home side trailing only 35-32 at the break.

Lithuania only led 44-40 with 7:05 left in the third quarter following two free-throws by Emma Meesseman of Belgium, but baskets by Kristina Vengryte and Giedre Paugaite pushed the Baltic team's advantage to eight.

By the end of the quarter, Lithuania were on top 58-49.

Algirdas Paulauskas' side pulled away in the fourth quarter, going in front by as many as 19 before winning by 15.

Center Petronyte led the Lithuanians with 21 points and eight rebounds.

Linkeviciene contributed 18 points and Paugaite scored 11 and corralled 11 boards.

Belgium slumped to their third straight defeat.

 

COACH QUOTES

23.06.2012
Quotes Belgium vs. Lithuania

Lithuania Head Coach Algirdas Paulauskas
"It was a very important victory, because it is on the road. The more experienced players were decisive."

Belgium Head Coach Benny Mertens
"We gave away too many free throws and offensive rebounds. That was the key of the game. We are also too soft on defence. They're details, but we keep on working and believe in the future with this group."

Lithuania player Kristina Vengryte
"The rebounds were the key of this game. The Belgians played strong in the first half. In the second half we made a lot of free-throws and we were also strong on defence."

Belgium player Sofie Hendrickx
"The first half was okay. In the third quarter we lost control for a few minutes and the game was over against a strong Lithuania."
