For the second time in as many tournaments, Japan have secured victory over Australia at the FIBA Asia Cup, moving to the gold medal game with a 76-64 win. The Opals had set the game up nicely with a 17-6 start to the game, but a 5-20 second quarter undid their good work and handed Japan the momentum, which they parlayed into the 12-point victory. Jenna O’Hea led three Opals in double figures with 12 points, but a monster 19-point, 15-rebound double-double from Yuki Miyazawa and 22 points from Nako Motohashi led Japan to victory.
