On the first day of the tournament, the U16 women team played two games.
The first game, Luxembourg lost against the local team BC Kolibi Ryga 25-34 (7-14/6-4/4-12/8-8) .
Our team played with good intensity and strong defense. However in offense,we havebig problems playing against zone defense (in Luxembourg this age group is not allowed to play zone defense) .
The zone defense of the opponents forced us to 26 turnovers .
In the second game of the day, the Luxemburgish team played against team from Poland and won 44-30 (18-2/5-7/14-9/7-12) .
Girls started with a very intense and aggressive defense to gave us the lead 18-2.
After the 1st quarter our opponent changed defense to the zone and that gave us again a lot of problems .
During the game we continue to play aggressive defense and tried to improve our zone offense.
After the first two games, Coach Mariusz Dziurdzia is pleased with the effort. One point the team will work on is improving zone offense, as internationally you are allowed to play zone in that age category.
