Analysis by the staff:
The girls were really motivated to start the championship today. We played a very important game against Great Britain and the girls showed a great fighting spirit in order to get the win.
After leading at the break (34:31), Great Britain came out stronger but we managed to stop their runs. We changed our defense multiple times and the girls played very aggressive which helped us to score 30 fast break points in total.
The girls are looking forward to their next game on Sunday against North Macedonia.
