Malaysia made a great first-half against a much bigger Nigeria team but the african girls finally came out of the game with a 30-point victory. In the other game of the day, New Zealand blasted Malta 127-47. Each team has played one game in this tournament and four teams are already looking like a lock for the semifinals: Australia and England in the Pool A, Nigeria and New Zealand in the Pool B. No surprise there.

Malaysia - Nigeria: 67-97
An undersized malaysian team made a great first-half as Nigeria reached the break on a 44-39 mark. But the second half of the game was too hard for the asian players, Nigeria won the third quarter 24-15 and the last one 29-13. Mobolaji Akiode (175-F-82) led her team with 19pts 6/11FG 6rbs, Rashidat Sadiq (192-C-81) netted 17pts 7/11FG 6rbs and Funmi Ojelabi (170-G-85) scored 16pts with 4/9 from the three-point range. In a well-balanced nigerian team, six players scored at least 10pts. For Malaysia, Siao Foong Chow (171-F-76) netted 18pts 9/19FG and Woon Yuen Teo (163-G-85) added 16pts 6/9FG. But in this game size did matter, Nigeria took 62 rebounds to 22!
