Also difficult: 3 out of 3 for the Belgian cats after the victory over Italy | Belgian cats

Italy was previously announced as the strong contender in the group stage. The fact that Italian ladies were cut from a different fabric soon came out on the field.

The Belgian Cats match was less exciting than in the previous two matches, and Italy relatively easily caught up with the Belgians, who relied mainly in the first half on Messmann’s inside scores and Vanello’s three-pointers.

In a particularly difficult third quarter, in which the Cats barely managed to score 11 points, even Italy held the lead for a while, although star player Zandalasini was held in the grip of staunch defensive Delaire.

Despite another cartload of assists – 11 again – Allemand had a more difficult time setting the pace and there was also little help from the bench. Honestly: Barely 6 of the 72 Belgian points scored came off the bench.

However, the Cats managed to pull the sheet in an even better quarter-final. Meesseman and Vanloo took their team to the draw and secured direct qualification to the quarter-finals: 72-64.

Belgium are the group winners with 3 out of 3 and will play again on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Cats will also replace Israel with Slovenia, where the final stage of the tournament will take place.

Belgium: Vanloo 23, Meesseman 20, Linskens 13, Allemand 6, Delaere 4, Mununga 4, Geldof 2.
