It was a big day for Swedish basketball history because the Scandinavians managed to beat Spain 78-69 at home, who is already one of the favourites of Eurobasket Women 2013.
Swedish team, led by Eldebrink sisters, namely Frida (24 points, 5/6 three pointers) and Eli n(6 rebounds, 5 assists) managed to keep Spanish away from them in the scoresheet until the fourth quarter.
