In the closing of the group stage of the U17 World Cup in Hungary, the National Team could not against Slovenia and lost 73-45. Tomorrow, Wednesday, they will play the round of 16 match against the local Hungary.

Argentina fell 73-45 against Slovenia in its third in the U17 Women’s World Cup that takes place in Debrecen, and in this way the first phase ended in 4th place in Group B. The National Team led by Lali González will have to think in tomorrow’s match for the round of 16, an instance in which they will face the local Hungary, with a time to be defined.

Angelina Giacone was the greatest exponent of the National Team. The santafesina had a very good performance after signing 14 points (with an interesting 4/7 in triples) plus 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 23 minutes. Malena Maggi (9 units, 4 rebounds and 3 steals) and Paula López (7 points) escorted her.

The Albiceleste team had good passages in defense during the first minutes, pressuring and making his rival uncomfortable, maintaining that dynamic that he managed to capture during a good part of the second game against Australia. That was a plus, although offensively he had drawbacks both due to effectiveness (17% of the field in the first quarter, with 3/17) as well as with the transfer of the ball, because Slovenia read the passing line many times and hurt on the counterattack , even more so when he better armed his offensive transitions.

After a start with a 21-8 disadvantage, the National Team showed intensity at the start of the second episode to emulate an improvement. And although they got to seven (23-16), the Europeans once again had a streak of quick conversions to go into the break up by thirteen (35-22). That opened the door for a second half of the match in which the Europeans finished escaping. Between that closure and a start of 12 to 3 in the third quarter, with a much more intense, faster and more effective rival, the match was definitely broken.

With this result, Argentina closed the first round of the World Cup in fourth position in its group. Tomorrow, Wednesday, with a time to be confirmed by FIBA, they will play against the hosts of Hungary in the match for the round of 16. The Hungarians are undefeated and will conclude the group stage shortly against Mexico, but regardless of their result, they have already secured first place in their zone.
