FIBA U18 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP, DIVISON B
Azerbaijan - Luxembourg 53 - 57
(16-15; 5-9; 10-15; 22-18)
A Third deserved win for our U18 national team against the team of Azerbaijan allowed us to finish the European championship at 19thplace.
Without the 1st point Guard Noé Melchior (light injury), it was tough for the coaching staff to find the best solutions on court against a very physical team (specially under the basket), but our squad was able to make a good reaction after last night game.
The game was balanced in the 1st half, in the third quarter, the teammates of Mike Feipel put more efforts in defense and executed well, the coach instructions which allowed them to take a lead by 15 points, the opponent tried to cut the deficit and catch back the score but the determination of our squad made us manage a third win in the competition.

L. Tousch, N. Melchior (DNP) , J. Martins , M. Pagani (2 pts) , O. Koeune , L. Demuth (8 pts), R. Da Cunha , B. Kovac (23 pts) , M. Feipel (21 pts) A. Loualiche , O. Jack (3 pts) A.MENDES
