Swiss Roll Over For Hopeful Serbia

07 July 2012


8. Milica Ivanovic (Serbia)
All twelve players scored for Serbia with Milica Ivanovic's 17 points being a team-high.

Outstanding defence was the foundation for Serbia to lock down and overpower Switzerland 88-45 as they continue piling the pressure on both Montenegro and Poland in an intense Group B.

The three-way race for those two precious spots now looks like it could go down to the wire after Marina Maljkovic and her team made no mistake on their travels to Fribourg.

Having opened up a six point first quarter advantage, a super 20-9 second period put the game to bed early and the longer the game went on for, the more rampant Serbia became.

They certainly saved the best until the last ten minutes when they really stepped on the gas.

It was a vibrant and powerful performance by the visitors who pounded the home team 44-22 on the glass and racked up a mammoth 21 assists to underline the confidence and belief which continues to flow now they have chalked up three straight wins.

All twelve Serbian players managed to rack up some points with veteran Ivanka Matic claiming a double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Serbia host Poland on Wednesday and travel to Estonia in the final two games.
