FIJI was beaten by India 93-51 in the quarter-final of the FIBA Women’s Asia Cup in Bangalore, India on Thursday.
The first quarter was tightly contested but India eventually began to push out the lead.
Team Fiji was once again showcasing its talents as Mili Koyamainavure put on another great performance in this event.
She finished the game with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists. Koyamainavure led by example as Tiyana Kainamoli also added 9 points and 3 steals.
After the loss Fiji will now face Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is yet to secure a win in this year’s event.
This game could be a good chance for Fiji to channel the improvements they had made throughout the week to notch their first win.
Fiji’s game against Sri Lanka will determine their placing for the final day of competition.
If they can defeat Sri Lanka then they will play off for 5-6 spot in Division B of Asia.
Fiji could make history if they are able to make the top five in its first FIBA Asia Cup campaign.
