The game took place in the Sofia’s “Universiada” hall and ended with a score of 102:90 (29:22, 17:25, 26:14, 30:29).

The national basketball players demonstrated team sprit and great sportsmanship before an exited audience, who had filled almost every seat in the hall.

The team rests on Saturday and will play their next game on Wednesday, September 17 against Italy as a guest.
