Pearls continue fine form

The Australian Pearls basketball team have continued to show their dominance, defeating Brazil 73-28

The Australian Pearls started slowly against the Brazillian team, taking most of the first quarter to show their dominance.

For the remainder of the game however, the Australian Pearls controlled the boards at both ends of the floor, closing Brazil out of the game.

Australia's fast flowing transition game again enabled an uncontested scoring flow, the Aussies achieving a shooting percentage of 43 per cent.

All eleven players received court time. Two players achieved double doubles - Nicole Skerman with 12 points and 13 rebounds and Mina Aldobasic with 11 points and 10 rebounds. 

Kaite Papworth top-scored with 22 points, well supported by Mina and Nicole. 

Eliza Barden also scored 10 points. The Pearls have a rest-day tomorrow before the final game of the Championships on Saturday.
