Report

Ireland started brightly in this Division B Qualifying Group, only losing by 2 Points to Switzerland and after a big loss at home to Romania they won 76-70 at home to Cyprus. 2007 was to be much less encouraging, with a big home loss (58-86) to Switzrland, where they might have thought they had a chance of winning given their previos match with the Swiss, before a 10-point loss to Romania, and then a 5-point loss to Cyprus, leaving Ireland with a 1-5 Record for the Group.
