A medal in our hearts
EUROBASKET WOMEN - Bronze medal
|Greece||45 - 78||Belgium|
Greece were defeated rather easily by Belgium 78-45 and finished 4th in the Eurobasket Women.
Greece’s great run in the Eurobasket Women tournament came to an end without a medal after falling rather easily to Belgium 45-78. The Ethniki ran out of steam after their big win over Turkey in the quarterfinals, falling to both France and Belgium in their final two games in the competition.
The story of today’s match is completely told by the 33-point Belgium victory as they dominated the game and were clearly better than the Greek side. Belgium claimed the bronze medal, leaving Greece away from the podium, however Greece did secure a spot in the 2018 World Championships with their fourth placed finish.
The fourth placed finish is the highest ever for Greece’s women national basketball team at a major tournament and the final placement marks an extremely successful run in the Eurobasket Women.
