It's quarterfinal time at the O2 Arena in Prague with Belgium and Italy facing off in the opening game.

Belgium advanced directly to the last eight after sweeping Group D with victories over Montenegro (66-64), Russia (76-75 OT) and Latvia (62-58). 

Leading the Belgians in their quest to reach the semifinals of this competition for the first time is WNBA All-Star Emma Meesseman, who averaged 19 points and 7.3 rebounds in the group stage. 

Head coach Philip Mestdagh will also count on Ann Wauters, Hanne Mestdagh and Marjorie Carpreaux. 

Italy, meanwhile, reached the quarterfinals after surviving Hungary 49-48 yesterday. Cecilia Zandalasini led the Italians with 17 points and nine rebounds. Giorgia Sottana and Francesca Dotto added 12 points apiece for the Italians.

Head coach Andrea Capobianco will again heavily rely on his prolific trio as they aim to reach the medal round for the first time since 1995 when they finished runner-up to Ukraine in Brno.

This is the first meeting between Belgium and Italy in this competition since the 2011 Eurobasket qualifiers.
