Report

This was the Qualifier for the European Championships in 2018 in this Dutch variant of Basketball.

Ireland won their first two matches in Pool B quite easily over Switzerland and Armenia before losing to Serbia in their final Pool game. They then lost in the Semi_finals to Hungary before beating Greece 24-5 in the 3rd Place Playoff.

The Top Two Qualified for the European Championship finals, however, Russia withdrew so Ireland took their place.
