GAMEZONE: FIBA Under 18 Women's European Championships

GAMEZONE: FIBA Under 18 Women's European Championships

  • Aug 12,2018

This Saturday will see the Ireland Under 18 women’s basketball team write their own bit of history as they make their debut at the FIBA Under 18 Women’s European Championship Division A in Udine, Italy. 

The team’s appearance in Division A – for the first time in the history of Irish basketball – follows on from their incredible fairytale journey through the Division B championships which were held in Dublin last summer and saw the girls in green scoop a silver medal and promotion in superb fashion. 

Now though, they have an extremely tough challenge in store as they face some of the giants of European basketball in the coming days, having been drawn in Group D alongside Russia, France and fellow promoted side, Poland.
