Report

Ireland started their campaign with a loss to Montenegro who would go on to win all 10 games in the group. Three wins for the Irish followed, 67-59 against Slovenia, 79-65 away to Switzerland and 68-59 against Iceland. A loss to the Netherlands followed before a narrow three point loss to the all-conquering Montenegro.

Ireland then had two more victories against Slovenia and Switzerland, but lost away to Iceland, a disappointing result which ruled the Irish Women out of a Playoff spot. Ireland won their last game against the Netherlands 67-62, showing that they could have indeed qualified for the Playoffs.
