Group B Day 2 Round-Up (Group A here)

See Table

USA 73 v Iran 50
Greece 34 v
Holland 95
Germany 79 v Japan 58

The second set of games in Group B saw no surprises. Greece failed to convert what few chances they had, leaving the Dutch to get a confidence boost after Saturdays defeat to the Germans.

Little more than a practice match for the Dutch who dominated throughout, giving a demonstration to the more than 1700 spectators. With a points win margin of more than 60 it's difficult to call this a sporting event.

Disappointingly for the neutral spectator, all three of this morning's matches finished with more than 20 point winning margins.

Predictably the USA cruised home against Iran with top scorer and US team captain Jeremy Lade netted 19 points.

Iran will be hoping they can take advantage of a demoralised Japan in tomorrow's crucial game between the two sides. Japan are 2 defeats from 2 games and both sides need this win if they are to have a chance of progressing.

Admittedly the Japanese have lost against first class opponents and have themselves not played badly.

Germany will be confident of the next round, having done the hard work against Holland and Japan.
