Ireland v Czech Republic FIBA EuroBasket QualifierInternational Feb 07 2023 Ireland play Czech Republic in their final FIBA Women’s EuroBasket 2023 Group I Qualifier on Thursday at 1600. It takes place at The Kraklova Arena in Prague, with live coverage on TG4 starting at 1555. THE STORY SO FAR Ireland began their campaign in November 2021, facing the Dutch in Amsterdam. That game finished in an 82-60 defeat for James Weldon’s team. An encouraging performance for a squad stepping up to a new level of competitive basketball. Three days later, we welcomed the Czech Republic to Dublin in what ultimately was a second defeat for the team at the National Basketball Arena. Ireland’s best performance thus far came in the reverse fixture with The Netherlands in November, an agonising 59-56 game during which James Weldon’s team amassed a 24-point lead at one stage in the contest.
