Head coach Ceyhun Yıldızoğlu congratulated his players for their outstanding performance and also congratulated Montenegro. “We respect them because it is their first time at EuroBasket Women and they have done really well. They were undefeated and they played really hard. In the second half especially, we played two post players and they changed the game,” the coach said.

Tonight at 9:30 p.m., Turkey will play with France to win a ticket for the final game

Well done girls ! Good luck for tonight´s match !
