However, they want more that advancing to the next round of the tournament.
“We are talking that we don’t want to be last placed in the quarterfinals,” the 6-foot-7 Serbian Kmezic stated as quoted by inquirer.net online.
The Serbian import scored 20 big points and helped the team with their second victory out of six matches (2-4). As for the Tigresses, they now suffered their sixth defeat in six matches as well (0-6).

The Tigresses had all their chances to steal the victory, but the intensity played by the Lady Oragons is good enough to move them into the next round.
