The U19 women's basketball team has qualified for the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Debrecen (Hungary), after defeating Japan 71-64. Spain reached the break below the scoreboard (35-38) and even faced the last quarter also at a disadvantage (52-57), but a 19-7 run in the last gave them the victory.

Elena Buenavida, with 16 points in the 21.39 minutes she was on the court, was the main offensive reference for Mario López's team. The beginning of the last quarter was decisive.
