Belgium produced a storming second half to win the International Basketball Federation Women’s EuroBasket title for the first time, after overcoming Spain 64-58 in Ljubljana.

Spain held a 32-25 lead at the break at the Arena Stožice however the Belgian Cats fought back and helped by an impressive display from Kyara Linskens, who scored 18 points and 15 rebounds.

Belgium limited their opponents to just one fast break basket, enabling them to restrict Spain, who controlled the game for the majority of the first 35 minutes, to 58 points.

France, runners-up in the 2021 edition, had to be content with the bronze medal this time around, as they finished third by overcoming Hungary 82-68.

A scoring run of 20 points to one in France’s favour proved decisive and once the French opened up a 26-8 lead at the end of the first quarter it was always going to be too much for Hungary to overturn.

French guard Mamignan Toure finished with 20 points in the match, including six triples, in a fluid display for the nation, which featured 41 points from players who came off the bench.

Victory ensured France finished with a medal for the eighth successive edition of the Women’s EuroBasket tournament.

Meanwhile in the qualification game to join the Women's Olympic Qualification Tournament for Paris 2024 Serbia overcame Germany 78-62.

Serbia won the opening quarter 25-15 to take control of the match and never relinquished the advantage, with Yvonne Anderson Serbia’s top performer with 16 points, as the nation also secured fifth place at the EuroBasket tournament.
