The Macedonia Basketball Federation are hosting their second FIBA Europe Championship of the summer.
In July the town of Kavadarci hosted the U20 Women Division B competition.
For the U16 tournament the games are played in Skopje.
With just 16 teams this year the format of the competition is identical to the format used in Division A.
However teams are not relegated from Division B.
The first phase of the competition ended on Saturday, 14 August 2010, with Germany, Hungary and the Slovak Republic remaining undefeated.
On the other hand Luxembourg, Macedonia, Switzerland and Ukraine are yet to win a game and have been eliminated from the qualification round. They will play for the classification places for 13th - 16th place.
Germany and Hungary were relegated from Division A last season and are hoping to make a quick return to the elite.
Germany cruised through the first phase conceding just 108 points and winning by an average of 36 points.
The Slovak Republic scored the most points in a game when they beat the hosts on the opening day (100-33) and have scored the most points so far with 256 points.

Sofie Preetzmann from Denmark and Shequila Joseph from England who are currently third and fourth in the scoring statistics are following in the footsteps of their older sisters, Ida Preetzmann and Kashmere Joseph.
