The Slovaks, who were led by 21 points and 10 rebounds from Zofia Hruscáková, meet Hungary for eleventh.

The battle to come fifth will begin on Saturday with the losing teams from the quarter-finals, Greece meeting Sweden and France taking on Russia.

In the relegation round, Serbia missed the opportunity to secure their Division A status as Poland overturned a ten-point deficit in the second quarter to grab a 66-62 behind 20 points from Weronika Telenga.

Finland remained in the race to avoid the drop to Division B after they came from behind to beat Croatia 61-54.
