Rhondda get lost in France

FIBA Cup for Women
Reims  71          Secerbegovic  17
Rhondda  47      Smyrnaiou  17

Rhondda Rebels debut in the FIBA Europe Cup for Women ended in defeat in France, the Welsh outfit crashing 71-47 to Reims in their Conference West opener.

Olga Smyrnaiou was the only Rebels player in double figures, scoring a game-high 17 points but it was not enough. The visitors had performed respectably early on and trailed only 19-16 at the first quarter's end.

However the hosts spurted clear at the outset of the second, and a further push in the final period gave the scorelines a one-sided effect.

In the other group tie, Caja Rural Canaria took a 59-49 win over BCSS Dexia Namur.
