FIBA Asian Championship: Korea Outclasses India


In the final group A encounter, the Indian women’s basketball team was up against Korea, and had no hopes of qualifying for the semi finals bracket at the FIBA Asian Women’s Championship. The Korean team took complete advantage of India’s vulnerabilities and handed the team a heavy defeat as the score line read 121-44.

Koreans dominate the final group game against India

India gave a tough fight to the Korean team during the early stages of the first quarter, but from the sixth minute onward, Korea turned the game around completely. In a matter of minutes, the score line changed drastically as Korea extended their lead from 16-11 to 38-13 at the end of the quarter.

Trailing by such a mammoth margin, Indian hopes were shattered early in the game. Pressure to perform and the stress of not winning a single game throughout the group stages led to further troubles, as the Indian team managed to add only seven more points during the second quarter and were trailing by 47 points at the end.

None of the Indian players managed to cope with the pressure in the remaining quarters, and that resulted in another heavy defeat for the Indian team at the FIBA Asian Women’s Championship.

Jeena Skaria and P Subhashmon are India’s rising stars

P Subhashmon impressed with her spectacular 3 pointers during the opening games and also won the most points for India early on. Her performances did not receive sufficient support from the rest of the squad, thus failing to convert those great performances into victories. Eventually, her accuracy took a beating and she could not convert the 3 pointers as comfortably as she was doing during the opening games.

That was when Jeena Skaria made her mark, being not just the most efficient player for the country during the last two games but also the highest point earner in the squad.

One can be hopeful for the good that will happen the day when both these youngsters perform to the best of their abilities in a single game.
