    Canada gets hammered by Mali 88-62 (Ouch). It looks like Mali shot about 45% while Canada managed to shoot right about 31%. Canada dominated the boards 3-43 but could not hang onto the ball having 24 turnovers (Mali had just 10).

    Yvonne had a decent day with 15 points (5-13), 6 rebounds and 2 assists.

    Yvonne with 10 points 9 rebounds and 2 blocks.

    B.C.s (Washington State) Tara Wallack seems like a baller as well...

    Bench shortened down considerable with only 7 players getting meaningful minutes.

    Now in the top 8, will face a balanced Australian side next in the quarter finals.

    I think it will be a close game with the Canucks squeeking one out

    Thanks for the update OZZY.

    Tough game for the Canadians (2-2) against the Aussies (3-1). While many of the stats are pretty equal between the teams, the biggest difference is that the Aussies have shot much better from inside the 3 point line (43.5%) than have the Canadians (36.7%). Shooting from beyond the 3 point line is essentially equal with the Aussies having a slight advantage (34% vs 32.4%). The Canadians do have a large advantage in shooting from the charity stripe (71.4% vs 56.3%).

    Little to no difference in total rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, turnovers and fouls. The difference in the rebounds is where they occur. The Aussies have the advantage on the D-boards (36 vs 28) but on the O-Boards the Canadians have the advantage (21 vs 15). The advantage in O-boards for the Canadians has led to a big difference in 2nd chance points (21.3 vs 10.5).

    Go Canadians,

    Canadians come up a little short against the Aussies 72-61.

    Nothing really stands out as any particular reason. The game statistics, for the most part, followed the tournament statistics for each team. Aussies shot a little better and won a tight rebound battle 44-42. The biggest difference between the teams was the Aussies killing it on the O-boards (20-14) and winning the turnover battle (15-22). Seven less turnovers and six more O-boards will lead to an 11 point victory.

    Once again Yvonne was the Canadian player of the game with 10 points on 5-12 shooting, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 block before fouling out.

    Canadians playing Russia in the 5-8 game on Saturday.

    Team USA is playing Hungary in the Semi-Finals also on Saturday.
