Japan vs. Nigeria
Group B play continued with Japan and Nigeria facing off Monday in Tokyo. It was the first time the African Champions faced the Asian Champions in this year's Olympic competition.
Japan's Hayashi Saki took over the game. She was unstoppable from beyond the arc, shooting 6-9 from three-point range and finishing with 20 points in the first half.
The second half was more of the same. Japan showed they're a medal contender, scoring the most points in the women's tournament so far as they advanced to the quarterfinals.
China vs. Belgium
China took down Belgium early Monday morning to finish group play with an undefeated record. They now enter the quarterfinals as one of the top squads in women's basketball.
Emma Meesseman, who finished with 24 points, a 71-percent field goal percentage and seven rebounds, had a terrific game for Belgium. The rest of the team struggled, though, combining for a grand total of 38 points.
This was by far Belgium's worst game of the group stage, so they will enter the quarterfinals motivated to rebound.
Australia vs. Puerto Rico
Australia had no issues taking down Puerto Rico, 96-69, to wrap up pool plan and shackle Puerto Rico with an 0-3 record. The Australians were in danger of going winless themselves, but Puerto Rico has arguably been the weakest team of the women's competition thus far while Australia has been competitive against solid teams since arriving in Tokyo.
Despite being on a struggling team, Puerto Rico's Jazmon Gwathmey still managed to have a big individual performance, finishing the contest with 26 points and a half-dozen rebounds.
