Really GB? 20 points in a half? Way to make Belarus look like Seattle Storm.

I thought even Russia could avoid their customary slow start against a completely mediocre (at best) Slovak team. But no, here we go again...

Great ending for Slovakian - Russian game. Russia yet again slipped through just because of their talent on the roster.

Do we give France the cup now or do we hope someone gets injured? They're ridiculously good. Spain or Russia were nowhere near that level a couple of hours earlier.

Yeah, I wonder if the bookies will finallly listen to us about Russia's 'favourites' tag being a little ridiculous now? And I hear you about the 'I guess - go France' thing. I'm in the same situation with the other game - probably just want the Czechs to win and let the top two run away leaving us to fight with Israel for third.

That's great thanks! lol!

On a more serious note, I like to see France up-tempo-ish, that's quite rare, more used to 55-60pts game with Pierre Vincent. But in this game, they don't have much to set up for on offense anyway.

Really, Montanana? Is being 4 points down the time to attempt highlight reel behind the back passes?

BTW no Valdemoro for Spain (hardly a surprise considering her age and injury history)

Marta (Xargay) got injuried ((( Montenegro seems even tougher than Germany, which may be a tragedy for Poland to qualify. Cindy Lima tipped the ball into Spanish own basket ...

Torrens has come to play, trying her best Erika de Souza impression to light some fire under her teams assess.

Just an observation, Russia shot 15/32 FTs today, 18/30 FTs yesterday. They're doing a good job to go to the line but their FT shooting is horrible. It's clearly not their only problem but come on, free throws... and an airball on a free throw today towards the end of the game pale

I've never seen a team play that good one day, and that bad the next. It's going to be a tie-breaker-fest-day tomorrow lol!

Damnit, we played awesome on defense. France helped out by not being ridiculously good from outside. I'm ecstatic.

God, congrats for Latvia, I love them (oh Babkina!) but didn't believe in them.

It makes situation in the group just incerdibly fascinating! If I am correct, we know totally nothing right know. If Croatia wins over Latvia and Greece wins over France... It's not very likely, but still... can you believe it?
