FIBA U17 World Championship
The good, the bad and the ugly
on day 2

China U17 team at FIBA World Championship for Women

It was raining for most of the second day of the FIBA U17 World Championship for Women. But the players came to the court motivated and ready to play with more energy than on the opening day.

Veuillez trouvez en bas de page, les informations sur la deuxième journée du Championnat du monde de basket U17 féminin.

The Australian Gems were first in action against the Slovak Republic in Pilsen. The Australians won the battle of rebounds (50-29) while the Slovak Republic hit the more spectacular shots. 

Both teams played with a lot of energy and desire to win. Australia's advantage on the rebounds helped them in winning the game (58-51).

While the 20 rebounds and 12-point contribution of Anneli Maley will send shock waves around the world, Jasmine Forcadilla (in picture), her team-mate's clutch shooting was a delight to watch.

Radka Stasova led the Slovak Republic in defeat. In the second game from Group C, Japan beat Mexico (65-36). The Mexicans were fast and ambitious while Japan were well disciplined and efficient round the boards.

In Group D, the USA smashed France 26-1 in the final quarter as they cruised to victory (88-40). The USA stepped up from their opening day performance and gave a little demonstration on how to use height to good effect. Katie Lou Samuelson helped herself to 4 three-pointers in leading the USA scoring with 17 points. Let's say France have had better days.

In the last game of day 2 in Pilsen at the FIBA U17 World Championship for Women, China were involved in a very physical and ugly match with Mali. However once China concentrated on playing basketball it was one-way traffic (62-33).

The best best game of the day was in Klatovy between the hosts, the Czech Republic and Hungary. The game was decided in favour of Hungary in double overtime (88-85). It is best to watch this game in full (to be found below with all the other games from day 2 of the FIBA U17 World Championship for Women). In the other game from Group A, Canada preveiled over Korea (68-47).

In Group B, Spain walked over Egypt (84-57) while Brazil beat Italy in the worst game of the tournament so far (54-33).

Les Américaines dominent les Françaises à la 2e journée du

Les USA étaient foudroyantes dans leur deuxième rencontre et les victimes étaient les Françaises qui n'étaient pas à la hauteur de leurs adversaires.

L'Australie gagne le premier match de la deuxième journée (58-51) contre la Slovaquie en dominant les rebonds.

Les deux équipes jouent avec beaucoup d'énergies et l'envie de gagner, mais les co-équipières de Radka Stasova succombent contre une Anneli Maley (20 rebonds et 12 points) en forme.

Japon, très discipliné, s'impose contre le Mexique (65-36) pendant que la France trébuche contre les USA dont Katie Lou Samuelson est la meilleure joueuse Américaine avec 17 points (dont quatre tirs à trois-points).

Le score du premier quart-temps est 5-15 pour la France qui n'arrive pas à se mettre dans le bain. Les Américaines dominent tout au long de cette rencontre et balayent leurs adversaires dans le dernier quart 26-1 pour facilement gagner (88-40).

C'est Mali qui succombe contre la Chine (62-33) qui avait perdu contre l'équipe des Etats-Unis le jour avant.

wbbif recommande à revoir la vidéo du match de la journée (veuillez la trouver en dessus de cet article) entre la République Tchèque et la Hongrie dont la rencontre se décide seulement après la deuxième prolongation en faveur pour la Hongrie (88-85).

C'est Canada qui bat la Corée (68-47) et l'Espagne gagne pour la deuxième fois dans ce championnat. Son adversaire, l'Egypte perd (57-84).

A oublier le plus vite que possible est le match entre l'Italie le Brézil. L'Italie succombe (33-54).
