CHN/JPN - Japan fightback at start of second half dooms China


VIDNOJE (FIBA U21 World Championship for Women) - Japan won a battle of Asian giants by coming from behind to defeat China 74-62 on Friday in the Moscow Region.

China will be smarting after this loss as they went on an 11-0 run to finish the first half to lead 40-27.

Instead of building on that advantage, they allowed the Japanese to strike back immediately after the restart.

Shizuka Uchida's basket with 4:05 remaining in the third quarter capped a 19-3 run for Japan and left them with a 46-43 lead.

Japan gradually began to pull away and with 6:03 left in the game, they found themselves ahead at 61-51.

The Chinese refused to give in and trimmed their deficit to 62-60 with 3:24 to go.

Asami Yoshida restored order for the Japanese, though, scoring inside and getting fouled on the play. She made the free throw to convert the three-point play, and Japan pulled away over the final few minutes.

China lost despite out-rebounding their opponents, 41-34.

Yoshida finished with a game-high 23 points and eight rebounds for Japan and Kozue Tanaka had 20 and nine boards. They will now play the winner of Mali's game against Spain for ninth place, while the Chinese will take on the loser of that contest to determine who finishes 11th and 12th.
