Bad number! Despite the Belgian injury, the cats make their way to the quarter-finals of the World Cup 3×3 | Basketball World Cup 3×3

Despite Massey’s good opening point, the cats began to hesitate. Although the scenes of the Brazilian Seleção weren’t too intense. After a round of missteps from both countries, it was Brazil that threatened to run out for the first time.

Under the impulse of Vanloo, who was successful in two throws today, and Massey, who was especially strong under the basket, the two cats came along.

Until Recimont miscalculated and fell. She screamed in pain and soon it became clear that she could not continue playing. With one cat down, the fighting spirit turned into even more fuel.

The cats showed themselves to be mentally and physically stronger than the Brazilian women and gradually increased their scores. Vanlo decided the game with another pointer. Her free throws and Massy finally hit Brazil with a knee.

After the whistle, the injured Raismont, who was still limping during the lockdown, joined the celebration. Tears of happiness flooded in Massey & Co’s eyes.

The necessary part of self-confidence has been weakened. And that will be necessary, because tonight 9.10 pm, world champion China is waiting in the quarter-finals.

“I’m tired,” Julie Vanlow sighed in front of the microphone. “We wouldn’t have done this without the fans. With Laure injured, we knew we’d be tired.”

“But the energy the fans gave us was amazing. And we pushed that through this match.”

“China is a strong opponent, and they’re going to be tougher physically. We still have a few hours to get ready. The crowd should also be ready, because we need them tonight.”
