Another World Championship
final game for Spain

The first 129 seconds were fast and furious with neither Spain nor the Czech Republic able to put the ball in the basket. Then the flood gates open with Spain scoring 8 unanswered points within the next 90 seconds.

Spain were on a run. Despite conceding 4 points, they put the hosts on the back foot for good with 11 straight points on their way to a first-quarter lead (21-6).

Spain continued to dictate the pace all through the second quarter. They pushed their advantage to more than 20 points by the time the teams went into the locker room (40-15).

The Czech Republic were another team after the break. They were more aggressive and finally their shots started to drop. But Spain weathered the storm and held on to a 21-point lead going into the final quarter (55-34).

The hosts were unable to draw closer and let the current U16 European Champions qualify for their second FIBA U17 World Championship final.

USA looking for a repeat at
FIBA U17 World Championship for Women

Hungary were not startled when they lost Dorottya Nagy after 90 seconds of play (she later returned) and Agnes Stude due to 2 early fouls. They traded toe to toe with the USA in the opening quarter.

However the USA with 6 three-pointers by Katie Samuelson (in picture) led (32-28) at the end of the first quarter.

Hungary huffed and puffed all through the second quarter. Yet they missed too many simple chances and failed to make a dent in the USA lead going into the locker room (39-46).

The USA have so many players that can score. So even with Samuelson neutralised until the very last shot of the third quarter, the USA were able to stretch their advantage to (69-51) by the end of the third quarter.

With the contest over, the final quarter was played out in good spirit with the USA cruising to victory (91-63).

Australia u17 team at the world championships

France let themselves down in the rebounding department by picking up just 22 compared to Australia's 42.

France will end their tournament with a match for 7th place against Japan.

In Klatovy where the lower classification games are played, Korea beat Mali (76-67) and will face Brazil who defeated China (48-44) in the match for 9th place.

Italy avoided playing off for 15th place by beating European rivals, the Slovak Republic (57-38) while Egypt remain the only team not to have tasted a victory in this competition after losing to Mexico (70-76) in overtime.

All the lower classification games from day 6 of the FIBA U17 World Championship for Women can be found below:


La sixième journée du
Championnat du monde de basket U17 féminin est à déplorer pour la France

Canada happy to play for fifth place at the FIBA u17 World Championship

Pendant que l'Espagne et les Etats-Unis vont se rencontrer dans la finale et La République Tchèque se confronte à la Hongrie pour la médaille de bronze, la France doit se contenter d'une possible septième place.

L'Australie et le Canada joueront pour la cinquième place.

Tous les autres matchs de la dernière journée seront:

7e place – France contre Japon
9e place – Brasil contre Corée du Sud
11e place – Chine contre Mali
13e place – Italie contre Mexique
15e place – Slovaquie contre Egypte

L'Espagne prend le dessus après la deuxième minute de jeu contre la République Tchèque pour terminer le premier quart avec un avantage de 15 points (21-6).

La République Tchèque souffre aussi dans le deuxième quart-temps et concède plus de points. A la mi-temps le score est (40-15).

Pourtant quand les Tchèques reviennent sur le terrain avec plus d'aggressivité et une meilleure adresse au shoot, l'Espagne garde son avantage de 21 points (55-34) pour entamer le dernier quart avec sérénité pour remporter cette rencontre (73-41).

La Hongrie ne se laisse pas écarter de son adversaire. Les deux équipes se contre-attaquent sans cesse avec les Etats-Unis prenant le dessus à la fin du premier quart (32-28). Pendant le deuxième quart, les Américaines réussissent à écarter la Hongrie (46-39) grace à la maladresse de l'adversaire.

Dans la deuxième mi-temps, les Etats-Unis augmentent leur avantage après dix minutes de jeu (69-51) pour finalement s'imposer (91-63).

Le Canada arrache une victoire au Japon à la dernière seconde (46-45) grace à un tir à trois point de Mikela Brewer pendant que l'Australie bat facilement la France (65-48). Manque d'inspiration et de prise de rebonds, la France doit à nouveau se mettre en question pour mieux entamer le dernier match de ce championnat.

Dans le bas du classement, la Corée du Sud s'impose contre le Mali (76-67) pendant que le Brésil bat la China (48-44). L'Italie gagne contre la Slovaquie (57-38) pendant que l’Égypte perd pour la sixième fois, en prolongation contre la Mexique (70-76).

Les matchs du bas de classement peuvent à nouveau être visualisés (voir en-dessus de cet article) pendant que si vous souhaitez regarder les autres matchs, vous devriez vous souscrire auprès de FIBA TV, LiveBasketball.
