Game Report, Brazil vs Czech Republic 75-51, Quarter-Finals

S„o Paulo / Brazil - The Czech Republic's drive for a medal at the FIBA World Championship for Women came to a grind halt on Wednesday as they were brushed aside by Brazil.

Iziane Marques poured in 11 of her game-high 23 points in the second quarter as the hosts took control early and cruised to a 75-51 triumph in the quarter-finals.

The European champions, just two days after an impressive display in a 63-50 setback to the United States, were blown away by a 16-0 Brazilian run in the first four and a half minutes of that second period.

Iziane had seven of those points in the surge while …rika weighed in with six.
Zuzana KlimesovŠ stopped the rot for the Czechs by making one of two free throws with 5:38 to go in the half to make it 35-20, but Iziane and Brazil kept the pressure on and went to the break with a 44-28 lead and they held a commanding advantage the rest of the way.

In the decisive first half, the Czechs had a nightmare shooting the ball.
Jan Bobrovsky's team were 10 of 26 (38.4%) inside the arc and two of nine (22.2%) beyond it. In that opening 20 minutes, Brazil's defense, led by veteran Janeth's two steals, forced nine Czech turnovers.

Janeth finished the game with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

The cold-shooting Czechs got a team-high 10 points from Hana Machova, but the veteran guard was guilty of turning the ball over six times.
