Group B Match 3 Round-Up (Group A here)

See Table

Iran v Japan 57-79
Greece v
Germany 39-101
Holland 66-82

Holland came out in this afternoons last match of the day with a point to make. They're back and can beat anybody.

After losing against Germany they at least needed to remind themselves they can take on all teams.

Not that the Americans put up much of a fight in attack, with a poor shooting conversion - only 39% offield goals.

The Germans put on a ruthless display against a weak Greece team and were the first to clear 100 points in this Tournament. Hopefully Greece are getting something out of the thrashings they've received.

In the other Group B match today Iran lost to a determined Japan The Japanese will now be favorites to grab the fourth spot as their last match is against Greece.
