Andorra and Armenia join Malta and Cyprus in the Semi-Finals

KORCE (Albania) - The Semi-Finals are now set in Korce at the FIBA U16 Women's European Championship Division C after Andorra and Armenia took the wins needed to make the last four.

Andorra had far too much firepower for Moldova in the Qualification Games for Semi-Finals as they strode to a 66-43 triumph, built on a fabulous 26-11 third period that saw them race clear. They also capitalized brilliantly on the inability of their opponents to look after the ball, managing a super 45 points off turnovers.

Andre Cobo De Guzman controlled the game with a standout showing for Andorra

The success was also founded on a stellar individual showing from Andrea Cobo De Guzman who was exceptional throughout. She finished the contest as the standout baller with 27 points, 13 rebounds and 6 steals to set up a Semi-Final showdown with Cyprus.

Armenia will matchup against Malta on Saturday thanks to their 67-41 win against a disappointed host nation, Albania.  Always on top after a relatively close first 10 minutes, Armenia put their foot on the gas and their ability to take great care of the ball was a deal-breaker.

But, not as much as Seda Gabrielyan who went off in a big way after a majestic 35 points, 12 rebounds and 5 steals, while Kedak Sarkis offered 19 points and 8 boards.
