EuroBasket Women 2015 round up (Second Round, day 5)

The Debrecen chapter of the second round at Eurobasket Women is complete and half of the quarter-final picture is clear with the final stage of games in Gyor to come.

France defeated Belarus 64-58 as the 2013 runners up seal their place in the last eight, without having to play at their best.

Belarus finish third in the group despite losing all three of their Group E games.

The result means that Montenegro go through, and Greece head home.

Despite elimination, Greece ended their campaign on a high by deservedly beating the Montenegrins 76-63.

The Greeks delivered their best offensive performance of the tournament and led 44-24 at half-time. A 10-0 run in the fourth still had them 70-53 clear but late three-point attempts from Aikaterina Sotiriou and Iouliti Lymoura fell short.

Turkey finished Group E as group winners after ousting Czech Republic 59-48 in a physical battle.

The Czechs were unfortunately unable to make an impact and end their second round venture bottom of the pile.

Through: Turkey, France, Belarus, Montenegro. Out: Greece, Czech Republic
