Coaching staff:
During the first half, we did not play basketball like we should , the team wasn’t focused enough and didn’t execute our game plan .
After the half time, the red lions came back and showed a different side. The girls played a very good second half with a fantastic run in the last quarter. Unfortunately we couldn’t close the game and lost in overtime.
Sunday is a day off. On Monday Luxembourg will play its last group game against another strong team, Great Britain.
