Luxembourg U16 Women’s Team lost their first game against the physically superior team from Romania.
In their first official international game, the girls started the game shy and nervous. After a balanced start, they had a hard time playing their defense and struggled during the second quarter. They defended with too much fear and had too many turnovers in offense – most of them unforced errors.
After the break, the team calmed down and showed a different face: they found their way back to their strengths (aggressive defense leading to fastbreaks) and were able to win the second half.
A positive point is that the team was able to grab 60 rebounds with a « small » team and that they were also able to win the rebounding battle against Romania (on average one year older).
Tomorrow they have their next game against a strong team from Slovakia. The team will play one game at a time and try to do their best in order to gather experience for the upcoming years.
