66-57. Some defensive boards would be good.

The japanese are outworking our girls big time Far, far busier setting screens, running players off them. More high low action. Better constructed plays. Better finishing. More second chance points.

Get use to it, we haven't learnt a thing in 5 years. Same old coaches with tall ball mentality.

Motohashi - the speedy PG has been outstanding. Tososhika, the centre has dominated inside. Here i have to say her screen setting should attract fouls - for some reason the refs did not call barges she performed to get contact. But i give her credit for playing her role. In contrast George kepg fouling inside and onky made an impact with her step out 3s.

Motohashi, machida, fujioka as a 3 guard lineup with miyazawa at forward and tokashiki in the middle.

Why keep playing small guards who won't defend? Nicholson showed something in the 2.5 minutes she got.

Because sandy is old school. Every wnbl coach is similar apartbfrom Seebohm.

Mike, a big problem for our guards was that they had to fight through screens set and reset by japan bigs. Often these screens were poorly set, leaning in to bump/obtruct our guards. The refs would not call it.

Red84- Agree, but the other problem is that we choose to switch the on-ball and that then leaves a scramble rotation to get the small guard (Mitchell or Ebzery) back to some sort of match up that is reasonable. Rotation ends up with open three pointers which the Japanese eventually started to hit.

Nostraballmus sees that again the refs were to blame for an Oz loss. Not calling illegal screens this time. FIBA Headquarters to blame again ?

Mitchell has had a rough tournament but she is well ahead of Lavey as a player

She flew straight home from a WNBA season in which she carried a big load, and finished 3rd in the league in 3P% so yeah, I can forgive her for not being at the peak of her game this tournament. In terms of ball handling, decision making, scoring ability, and general poise & leadership she is still a clear standout over our next options.
(Having said that, Griffin is similarly clearly in front at her forward spot as well, so I can't knock anyone who thinks she should take the import spot. I also can't knock anyone who thinks Sami should have it because she makes so much else happen offensively even when not looking for her own shot, and right now our offense is even more of a concern than our D IMO)

Gergentoo slow for pf, Bishop terrible, Garbin needs a lot of work, Magbegor too timid, skilled but not tenacious. Smith comin off shocker and injured, zitina injured.

Maybe we should start olaying Allen at the 4 if we take Mitchell over Griffin.
Ohea and Talbot likely at 2-3 spot.
No penetration with this team though.

Apart from Ebzery who tried there aren't any players that can dribble penetrate to create a shot for themselves with confidence or to kick out for a good team shot. Not sure what our shooting percentages are the last 2 games as well.

Ebzery fumbles the ball way too much, sure she was trying to get to the basket, but she isn't a good PG, she doesn’t organise anything, they struggled when Mitchell was off the court
