SYDNEY (Australia) – The pairings and schedule for the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 Final and Third Place Game is now known after the conclusion of the Semi-Finals in Sydney.
The FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 Final and Third Place Game will both take place on Saturday, October 1.
Third Place Game
Reigning champions USA are a win away from a fourth title in a row after they eased past Canada 83-43 in the first Semi-Finals clash on Friday. They will play China for the title, after they denied Australia consecutive Final appearances with a 59-61 victory against the host nation.
This will be the first time USA and China have met in the Final. China reached this stage back in 1994, losing to Brazil and having to settle for silver. This is USA’s sixth Final appearance in the last seven editions.
Australia and Canada will fight it out for bronze, with the former last featuring in the Third Place Game during 2014 when they beat Turkey to bronze. Canada are looking to match their best ever finish, having taken 3rd place in both 1979 and 1986.
