  4. 22:07. Belgian Cats waltz across China. The Belgian Cats have won their first of 2 exhibition matches against China with a big difference. In Kortrijk, the Chinese suffered a 90-55 defeat. China is the vice world champion, but only 4 players of the team that won silver at the World Cup last year played in De Lange Munte on Thursday evening. A sloppy playing China was at no time a match for a strong Belgium, which put a lot of defensive pressure and finished off in attack. At halftime the difference had already increased to 25 points: 46-21. After the break, national coach Méziane was able to experiment to his heart’s content, but the game did not suffer. Everyone pitched in and the gap only widened. Final score: 90-55. On Saturday, the Belgian Cats will play against China again, then in a sold-out Sportoase in Leuven. It will be the last exhibition match for the Belgian women, who will open their European Championship against Israel next Thursday in Tel-Aviv. .

  11. 17:59. Greece is again a size too small. Just like 2 days ago, the Belgian Cats won against Greece on Sunday in an exhibition game. In Braine-l’Alleud, the difference was slightly bigger than on Friday: 86-57. Thanks to an ultimate score by Mununga, there was still almost a 30-point difference on the board. The audience enjoyed the buzzer beater to the fullest, even though it turned out not to be a three-pointer, but a two-pointer.

  15. 22 hours 12. Simple exhibition win for the Cats. In their first of two exhibition matches on Belgian soil, the Greek women have not been able to crumble much against the Belgian Cats. At halftime they were already 13 points indebted: 42-29. Because the Belgians were a bit more lax and careless in the 4th quarter, it seemed that Greece could more or less limit the damage. But a Belgian final offensive still made sure that the difference was considerable: 83-60. Belgium and Greece will meet again on Sunday, but this time in Braine-l’Alleud. .
  16. 22 hours 11. I am very satisfied with the enthusiasm and the pace that the players have set from the start. Defensively they were aggressive and offensively the danger came from everywhere. All players scored. There were also some weaknesses, but we need to work on that now. National coach Rachid Méziane.
