Bosnia and Herzegovina ease by Kosovo in Sunday encounter

SARAJEVO (FIBA U16 European Championship 2018, Division B) – Bosnia and Herzegovina made light work of Kosovo in the rescheduled FIBA U16 European Championship 2018, Division B fixture in Group D, with the tournament hosts registering a 115-58 victory on Sunday's only game in Sarajevo.

The Admir Prasovic-coached side solidified their position in the standings after moving to a 3-0 record, while their Kosovar opponents are yet to get on the board following the first two games.

Turning Point: The home side came up with all the right answers in the opening period, running out to a 32-3 lead after the first quarter, holding Kosovo to a single made field goal. Although the level of play evened out eventually, the damage was done.

Game Hero: It is difficult to pick out a single top performer in a well-rounded and complete team effort by Bosnia and Herzegovina, but point guard Orhan Spago did have an excellent game, scoring 16 points, grabbing 7 rebounds, dishing out 5 assists and coming away with 5 steals.

Stats Don't Lie: An emphatic 60-31 rebounding edge gives the tale of the game away, with Bosnia and Herzegovina using their size to outscore Kosovo 66-28 inside the paint and lead 34-4 in second-chance points.

Bottom Line: Bosnia and Herzegovina could secure an early bird ticket to the Quarter-Finals as soon as Monday if they win the next game against Belarus and Ukraine get the better of Czech Republic.
