ODU: The Becca Allison update

A roller-coaster tournament for Old Dominion's Becca Allison and Great Britain cruised upward Wednesday - barely - when the team qualified for the final eight in the U20 European A Division Championships in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Allison, who sat out two of her team's first four games and went 0-for-12 from the field in the other two, scored 8 points to help GB stun powerful France 62-50 on Tuesday. But the following day, Great Britain dropped a 70-66 decision to previously winless Netherlands. Allison scored 6 points in the defeat.

The loss left Great Britain needing Italy to defeat Latvia to advance from the qualifying round to the quarterfinals. Italy prevailed 70-61, boosting GB into the final eight of the A Division for the first time. The Brits will take on Russia in Friday's quarterfinals.

Allison is averaging 4.5 points, 2 assists and 1.8 rebounds in the tournament.
