Armenia and Cyprus get ready to do battle for the title

KORCE (Albania) - Armenia and Cyprus will compete to be crowned FIBA U16 Women's European Championship Division C champions after they both won their respective Semi-Finals on Saturday.

Fueled by their excellent showing on Friday in the Qualification To The Semi-Finals, Armenia raced to another eye-catching victory, this time taking down Malta 75-51

It was an epic 32 points and 9 boards from Lia Natalia Krumian that paced Armenia's triumph, with Seda Gabrielyan contributing a terrific cameo with 21 points, 8 steals, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

Malta had no answer to the brilliance of Lia Natalia Krumian

Malta were hamstrung by their stone cold 0-of-10 shooting from downtown, with only Sarah Fenech Pace impressing after finishing the contest with 12 points and 13 rebounds.

Cyprus were far too good for Andorra as they completed a comfortable 68-24 success. While the first 10 minutes was highly competitive, the Cypriots snapped the game open in the second quarter and rode their way out of sight.

Mikaella Savva starred with 13 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists as Cyprus dominated on the glass, with Andorra having a three-point shooting night to forget with just 1 from 15 attempts.
