It was a walk in the park for France today as they won back-to-back against China (15-3) and the UAE (21-0). Captain Astou Daye continued to carry most of the load and jumped to 2nd in the scoring charts, 10pts behind Egypt's Nadine Selaawi.
Game of the Day: New Zealand - Hungary (men) 21-13
The most spectacular game of the tournament so far with behind-the-back passes, monster blocks and two brutal poster dunks, courtesy of reigning champ and MVP Tai Wynyard.
Player of the Day: Tai Wynyard (13pts for New Zealand vs Hungary)
Even double teams could not stop the 2.05m big man against Hungary. The Auckland native now averages 11 points per game (in the first-to-21 format) and had a couple of nasty facials today.
Uninvited Guest of the Day: Heavy Rain
Just a few minutes after Alberto Perez struck down a thunderous dunk, Astana was hit by a storm. For the safety of the players, the 8 remaining pool games were rescheduled to Sunday 5 June morning.
