Nan Chen

TEO joined WCBA All Stars China in the FIBA Women's World League final round despite being beaten by the hosts in their last premliminary round game.

China international Nan Chen poured in 19 points for WCBA, who topped Group A with a 100% record.

Their Lithuanian opponents finished second with a 2-2 win-loss record, with both defeats coming in their final two game against the host team.

Sharp-shooting national team forward Vita Kuktiene was their star performer with 15 points, all her baskets coming from beyond the arc.

Canberra Capitals won their final game against Baltiyskaya Zwezda by a whopping 70-29 margin, but it was not enough to overhaul TEO despite their identical 2-2 record.

The Australians were in imperious form against a Russian team that ended up losing all four matches. Jessica Elizabeth Bibby once again led the scoring with 15 points, with a perfect three-from-three record from  long range.

None of Baltiyskaya Zwezda's players managed to reach double-figures, Elena Gogiya and Elizaveta Rusakova coming closest with seven points apiece.

The action now turns to Group B, which is being hosted by Hungarian outfit MiZo Pecs.

They are joined by Djoliba AC of Mali, Cuba's Basketball Club Habana and CTNW from Chinese Taipei.

Play gets under way next Friday.

Day 4 Box scores

WCBA All Stars China vs TEO 70-52
