GAME REPORT

30.06.2012
Sweden Sweep Past Romania

6. Frida Eldebrink (Sweden)
Frida Eldebrink led all scorers with 32 points, making 14 of 16 free throws.

Sweden maintained their charge in Group D of the EuroBasket Women Qualification Round as they breezed past Romania 93-78 to improve to 4-1.

Sweden quickly took charge of the game with a 14-2 run in the first quarter putting them 24-10 up on Frida Eldebrink's lay-up.

After Sweden had scored the final six points of the first half, highlighted by a big three-pointer from Stefanie Yderstrom, the advantage had bulged to almost 20, 47-28.

Romania responded after the interval, and went on a 6-0 spurt of their own to start the second half.

It was just the start they needed to put some pressure back on Sweden and they had closed the gap back to 12, 53-41, on a pair of free throws from Cristina Bigica.

After Gabriela Marginean scored the final four points of the third quarter, the Swedish lead had been cut to 10, 63-53.

A three-pointer from Ancuta Stoenescu made it 65-56 early in the fourth quarter, but that was the cue for Sweden to crush the rally with a 14-3 run that took the lead to 20, 79-59, when Frida Aili split a pair of free throws with 4:26 left in the game.

Frida Eldebrink poured in 32 points to lead Sweden while Yderstrom added 15, Elin Eldebrink 12 and Kadidja Andersson 10.

Marginean led Romania with 23 points and eight rebounds. Romania drop to 2-3 with the loss.

COACH QUOTES

30.06.2012
Quotes Sweden vs. Romania

Romania coach Dan Fleseriu:
"Sweden played well, I congratulate them. I'm not happy with our game and it doesn't feel good now. Now, to me, it's 90% sure that Sweden will qualify to Eurobasket 2013."

Romania player Annemarie Parau:
"Sweden played better than us. Our defense wasn't good in the beginning, it got better but not good enough. But we have to keep believing that we can qualify. It doesn't look good, but we still believe we can do it. We have tough games ahead of us, but we can win them."

Sweden coach Lars Johansson:
"This was a very tough game that almost got dirty towards the end. It happens when there's a lot at stake. I'm happy with how we played. Defense does it for us, it's when we play good defense that we get into our offense. I also have to salute Frida Eldebrink. I've seen a lot of international basketball the last ten years, and there is no doubt that Frida is a world class player. She's wonderful to have on the team."

Sweden player Frida Eldebrink:
"The game was very physical. Romania tried to put pressure on us, but we stuck to the game plan and attacked them and got fouled. When you get to shoot from the free throw line, it's pretty easy. It feels really good to win this game, but we are not satisfied, we want to win the rest of the games too."
