PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL:
Russia loses medal game to China

    China held Russia to 22-of-73 shooting from the field, and used a 20-9 scoring run in the second quarter of play to win the bronze medal at the 2005 FIBA U19 World Championships on Sunday. China shot 59-percent from the field and forced 24 turnovers.

    To get an idea of how unusual the scoring was in this game, Russia was hitting 53-percent of their field goals going into the final game against China. Bogdanova was not immune to the pressure of the game, hitting just 1-of-8 shots for five points. She also added two rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes.

    On the positive side, Russia was the best freethrow shooting team of the tournament, and Bogdanova led Russia from the line hitting 30-of-40 shots. She finished sixth among all players in freethrow percentage.

    For the eight game tournament, Bogdanova averaged 10.1 points (third on team) and 6.3 rebounds (second on team) per game.

    Ekaterina Savelyeva led Russia in points (12.5) and rebounds (6.5).

    In the gold medal game, Team USA defeated Serbia & Montenegro 97-76 by dominating the boards. The United States outrebounded Serbia & Montenegro 42-17. To add to the pain, all but two of the twelve players on Team USA hit above 50-percent from the field in the game.
