While the quarter-final matches were going on in Albena, the other games were played in Varna.

The prize for the winners on the quarter-final day is the guarantee of playing in Division A in next year's European Championship.

In the first game Bulgaria, the hosts were looking for their first victory of the competition by trying to beat Turkey

Bulgaria were all square with their guests (74-74) with three minutes left to play. But the upset did not happen. A three-pointer by Selale Kepenc (24 points, 12 rebounds) put Turkey in front for good as they went on to win (79-76).

The Slovak Republic made up a 8-point half-time deficit (20-28) to beat Belgium (55-46) in the second match of the day. Miroslava Mistinova and Veronika Remenarova (16 rebounds) led the way for the Slovak Republic with 16 and 12 points each.

Sweden are on a three-game winning streak after seeing off the Netherlands (62-46). Fanny Hakansson from Sweden had her best offensive game so far with a game high 21 points.

Greece, led by Maria Fasoula (18 points, 10 rebounds), had enough points in the tank to hold off a late surge by Lithuania (49-43).
