Ja­pan toys with In­dia

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

Ben­galuru: De­spite play­ing only at half throt­tle, de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Ja­pan car­ried far too many guns for hosts In­dia in their Group ‘A’ opener of the FIBA Women’s Asia Cup bas­ket­ball at the Sree Kan­teer­ava In­door sta­dium here on Tues­day.

The Ja­panese girls toyed with the pro­moted In­di­ans, scor­ing a lop­sided 103-27 vic­tory. Coach Tom Ho­vasse prob­a­bly didn’t feel the need to go all out and gave all his play­ers game-time to get the feel of court and the con­di­tions against the In­di­ans, who for the good part of the match re­sem­bled a rab­bit caught in the head­lights.
