Thanks to a brilliant 83-53 win over Nigeria, New Zealand took the pool B top spot and will avoid a semifinal clash against Australia. The Tall Ferns will play England while Australia will play Nigeria in the semifinals tomorrow. India, Maylasia, Malta and Mozambique will play in the classification games.

Pool A:
India - Mozambique: 58-54
That was a game for pride as the two teams were already out of contention for a semifinal berth but that was a pretty good game and India recorded its first win during this tournament. Shiba Maggon (174-F-76) netted 17pts 7/16FG, her teamate Geethu Jose also scored 17pts 8/14FG with 15rbs and 3bs, Anitha Pauldurai chipped in with 9pts 3/11FG 6rbs and 6ast.

Nigeria - New Zealand: 53-83
The New Zealand Tall Ferns outscored Nigeria to take the pool's top spot and an easier semifinal contest vs England, on the other hand Nigeria will have to play the all-mighty Australia in the other semifinal game. Nigeria was leading 15-13 at the end of the first quarter but a 21-5 run by New Zealand in the second stanza really made the break. NZ captain Donna Loffhagen (185-F-78) led her side with 19pts 8/13FG 10rbs and 5ast, Angela Marino recorded 13pts 2/13FG 5rbs and 5ast and Aneka Kerr chipped in with 10pts 4/7FG 7rbs. For Nigeria, Mercy Okorie (180-C/F-81) scored 15pts 6/10FG while Chioma Udeaja and Funmi Ojelabi both scored 9pts.
