Spain vs Serbia Olympic Women’s Basketball
Spain and Serbia face each other in an Olympic showdown in women’s basketball on Thursday morning. This is a Group A showdown and both teams aim to get 2-0 in the Olympics.
Spain had an opening game against South Korea and the favorites won 73:69. The game was probably much closer than Spain had wished, but the 19 points in the fourth quarter were enough to win. Astou Ndour was a strong player in the WNBA and against South Korea, she accelerated the team with 28 points and 10 rebounds. However, Spain didn’t have much performance on the bench and that has to change in this game. Spain has also only made two of their 12 threesomes and that is one more thing that needs improvement. In this game.
On the other side of this duel is Serbia, who were pretty scared by Canada in their first Olympic game but still managed to get away with a 72-68 victory. Serbia took advantage of a blanched attack with their offense, with the top player scoring 16 points and five players at least 12. Sonja Vasic was the best player in the first game, which ended with 16 points, and scored two of her three threesomes. Serbia as a team shot 47.1 percent from the depth and in this game for Serbia, it will depend on how well their offensive can play.
