world champs opals v china spoiler

cant get over how tough these teams are playing and how average the refs are - particularly inconsistent with the physical calls.

was not impressed with the player that hit tolo hard in the last 30 secs of the prior game.

should be interesting - there have been some upsets.

canada def china earlier - that would have to be an upset win for canada.

Anyone know why Jackson only played 3 minutes?

One would hope nothing more than she is being rested, a lot of minutes seemed to be played by the non-regular starters in the China game

even if we lost it was a dead rubber with us getting top spot - so no doubt resting LJ - would not have tipped china to go 0-3 in prelims.

Australia won 91-68.

Taylor led the way with 16 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals and 1 block in 22 min which is a great sign.

Grima played 31 minutes and had 14 and 8, O'Hea had 14 in 23 min, whilst Cambage had 13 in 11 min.

Jackson only 3 minutes was probably rested (I hope!).

We beat China 40-32 on the boards but we had 18 turnovers to their 21. We had 16 assists to their 5.
