The result comes after an impressive group stage run which included wins over Ukraine and Great Britain.

The victory came with the help of a remarkable piece of skill from Enya Maguire who managed to rebound the ball back off an opponent's back to set herself up for a comfortable 'nothing but net' basket. Maguire finished with 11 points, three rebounds, two steals and two assists.
