Mozambique claimed the 5th place in the first-ever women basketball tournament in the Commonwealth Games with a 77-40 victory over India. Malaysia secured the 7th place over Malta with a close 63-59 win. Tomorrow Australia and New Zealand will play for the Gold medal while England and Nigeria will compete for the Bronze.

5th place game:
India - Mozambique: 44-70
Mozambique made a great start in this game with a 23-10 lead after the first quarter, the indian players were unable to come back. That was a pretty bad shooting game (34%FG for Mozambique, 32% for India) and the best defensive team came out with the win. Rute Muianga (176-F-83) scored a game-high 21pts 8/21FG 6rbs, Carla Silva scored 19pts 8/20FG and Deolinda Gimo chipped in with 14pts 5/12FG 13rbs. As usual, Geethu Ann Jose (185-C-85) was India's best players with 20pts 8/16FG 10rbs and 4bs in 30 minutes, Anitha Pauldurai added 8pts 4/11FG 5rbs and Arnika Gujar scored 6pts.

Coach of the Indian team Abdul Khan was still very proud. “This is the first time we have played outside of India and we will take home a lot of memories,” he said.

Both teams really wanted to win their last game in this tournament, Mozambique reached half-time on a 30-26 lead, Malta won the third quarter 21-14 but the african players managed to bounce back to claim a 4-point win. Siao Foong Chow (171-F-76) led her side with 19pts 2/14FG, Yong Yong Chew recorded 13pts 9rbs.
