  • Description

    Teams from Austria, Belgium, France, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and West Germany, are competing in the Women's European Basket ball Championships being held at Mulhouse, France, from Mar 27 until April 3.

    After the morning opening ceremony on Mar 27, Austria met Scotland in the first match in pool "A" - Belgium, Italy, and Sweden are also in this pool. Looking very elegant in their tartan shirts with "Auld Reekie" embroidered on the front, the Scottish girls were not quite good enough to beat their Austrian opponents. They lost by 59 baskets to 44.

    The second match of the day was between Belgium and Sweden. Cheers from the Swedish reserve bench failed to improve their team's shooting and they lost by 45 baskets to 28.

    In the Pool "B" matches, France beat Switzerland by 39 baskets to 25, and Hungary beat West Germany by 64 baskets to 39 and led Pool "B" on goal average. Belgium finished the day two points above Austria in Pool "A".
