Wheelchair Basketball Preliminaries | Day 3 | Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games

[Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] and welcome inside the beautiful aryaki arena for wheelchair basketball at the tokyo 2020 paralympic games day three of women’s competition in the wheelchair basketball tournament features team japan versus team canada in this group a match following match will feature the world champions the netherlands against algeria both of these two teams come into this game riding a wave of positive energy you see the wins two already for japan one for canada they are unbeaten canada’s second game after an impressive opening day come from behind victory over the silver medalist from the last world championships great britain japan also beat great britain after their opening day win over australia with an even more impressive win over that silver medal winning great britain team that came to tokyo with such high hopes canadian team has high hopes now as well and there you see the stars in the middle there captain number seven cindy wallet and now the [Music] [Music] [Music] start to the tournament for japan not surprisingly [Music] [Music] and interestingly enough see number thirteen katie danano who had the triple double in the opening game against great britain will uh be coming off the bench in this one she won’t be in the starting five interesting strategy by canadian head coach mark antoine ducharme now head coach another key player will be rosalie lalonde and there’s cindy willa the captain number seven right beside her aaron young the national anthems of japan and canada [Music] [Music] [Applause] please [Music] [Applause] [Music] now and a big whoop let out by katie dan dino the 31 year old from pender island british columbia who really has only found this game in the last five or six years former university level basketball player a series of injuries stopped her and eventually through the influence of a well-known and very successful canadian coach tim frick she found her way to wheelchair basketball and she is well on i was gonna say on the verge of stardom but she may well have hit there already and the uh officials in our game today referee shuffa chinese taipei and the two umpires spin wood from great britain and hector carmona from spain and behind them the commissioner natalie vanuers [Applause] [Music] so the japanese team as we mentioned with that impressive win over australia on day one and then just to make sure everyone knew that that was no fluke followed it up with an impressive win over great britain and that’s that great britain team that came in here as silver medalists at the world championship so big win for japan they’ve obviously prepared very well japan’s captain fuji ikumi had a big game she scored 14 had 10 rebounds with a double-double five assists and a couple of steals as well canada meanwhile their offense really caught fire there you see the starting lineup and the numbers of course beside the classification numbers can add up to 14 and no higher and the point system is to maintain a level playing field so classification numbers go from 1 to 4.5 and correlate to the level of disability or impairment so the more involved disability will have a smaller number and the less they involve a greater number greater numbers the 4.5s the fours can typically sit much higher up in their chair and control their chairs so you can’t have five of them on at the same time and thus the rules so it’s very important to have strong players you see tamara steves and melanie hotten the low number players on canada they’re very strong players hot and particularly known for her speed and steve’s an all-around player and do many things to provide opportunities for their teammates so [Music] aaron young key player for this team for canada playing in her second paralympic game she had 12 points in the opener against great britain that is mark antoine ducharme head coach for canada [Music] each team playing four games in the preliminary round so this will already be japan’s third game of the tournament we’ll only have one left before they prepare for the quarterfinals and they put themselves in great shape canada is going to try to do the same their next game will be against germany and then australia these are group a games and we get set to go aaron young cindy ouellette melanie hotten tamara steves and uh rosalie lalonde on the floor for canada [Music] and japan’s starting five includes number 15 ama moto who will take the opening tip the captain fuji akumi canada gets that opening tip hagino is on the floor as well yene gamoto and canada starts on offense wallet makes her way into the paint takes the pass from young and the opening basket belongs to canada canadians pressing now trying to keep japan inside its own timeline but they get past gotta get past the center stripe in eight seconds just like in the basketball that was seen here at the olympic games a few weeks ago here’s an attempt for yamagamoto from range missus easy rebound for young canada’s got on four-on-four situation now with melanie hawton blocking out one of the japanese players hagino young the pass to wallet underneath for lalonde that misses [Applause] and now one of the japanese players is down and trying to get back into the play so here they come on offense short-handed and the miss on the shot and willette returns it for canada [Applause] cindy wallet veteran of this canadian team playing in her fourth paralympic games she also hopes to compete in beijing in the olympic in the paralympic winter games wallet puts up the shot rebound gathered in by japan [Music] and almost a steal by lalonde but here comes japan their opening basket is fuji akumi the captain she had 14 points against great britain and the double doubles so no surprise to see her get on the board aaron young surveys the scene she likes the shot and can’t get it to drop though fuji works it in for amamoto [Music] [Applause] [Music] tosses it under for amamoto for fuji and just off the mark [Applause] wallet now for canada didn’t play a lot of minutes in the opening game just 13 against great britain here’s lalonde here’s wallet and the basket will not count player down on the floor and that’s tamara steves she’s okay i don’t think there’s a foul [Music] canada is going to inbound the ball with melanie haughton well if you were in canada in the summer of 2015 especially if you were in toronto you would have seen melanie haughton all over on the uh subway posters and all around the city she was a key promoter of the parapan am games and the pan am games [Music] [Applause] aaron wallet aaron young rather [Applause] and back comes japan hagino and we got a foul call here [Music] aaron young taking the foul her first [Applause] [Music] two-two tie early stages of the opening quarter of this game fuji spinning trying to get away from wallet does gets the pass in and yanegamoto tried to give it back to her whose chair did it go off the officials say it went off a canadian chair shared an extension of your body in a sense amimoto works it now inside yanagimoto was there but just couldn’t finish aaron young wheeling her way out of her own end [Applause] works it in for wallet she’s got time and space and she hits it [Music] [Applause] [Music] cindy willett has both baskets for canada so far in the early stages of this one yamagamoto [Applause] fuji being hounded by lalonde now wallet picks up the defense aaron young picks it up and that’s a shot clock violation so there was just nothing there for japan canada takes over on possession leading 4-2 [Applause] [Music] rosalie in her second paralympic games 24 year old from montreal [Applause] cindy wallet slings it all the way across for young underneath for steve’s off the window and in nicely set up play by the canadians the old pick and roll [Applause] [Music] [Applause] canada is pushing that defense out as much as they can and this is going to maintain continue to be japanese possession they’ve got six seconds to work on the shot clock hagino rebounded by hualat in for young [Applause] [Music] [Applause] has the ability to shoot from range if she needs to instead she works it inside for lalonde who draws the foul and will head to the line [Music] from [Applause] coming in as a 64 free throw shooting team rosalie lalonda always has that look no matter how spectacular always feels like she could be doing a little bit better and maybe that’s a good attitude for athletes it’s interesting yamagamoto back down scores for japan and so they get one back but they get two back but they climbed it within three cindy wallet [Applause] one of several canadians who have had a lot of education a lot of that through scholarships through sport shot missed on the canadian side so back comes japan yamagamoto aguino and the shot from amimoto won’t go here’s lalonde there’s wallet there’s the layup [Music] five-point lead for canada and remember katie dendano who had the triple-double is on the bench just resting in case she’s needed and sure i’m sure there will be a time to bring her in foul call here against canada [Applause] tamara steve’s first personal foul looks like [Applause] [Music] [Applause] less than seven on the shot clock japan tries to work it free fuji and wallet is going to be called in the foul she doesn’t love it the officials now have a discussion about it and let’s see will there be a confirmation or a reversal [Applause] now they are going to reverse it and [Applause] give the foul to yanagimoto instead so that’s a second already for yanagimoto and we’re just over six minutes into the opening quarter rosie lalonde leading the charge for canada one of the ball handlers giving it to aaron young works it underneath for wallet and back come japan amimoto into the lane agino short [Music] hustled by hotten to get the rebound eventually finds lalonde [Music] [Applause] rosella lilon in for melanie haughton she dishes back to ouellette kicks it back for young almost knocked out of her hands by hagino four on the shot clock it’s short from wallet and japan back on offense amimoto guarded by young much taller player [Music] and now willett picks up the defense and a steal by canada that was a team steal in a way they put so much pressure on japan there was nowhere to go here’s young weaving in off the window dropping in [Applause] and a timeout call 11-4 the lead for canada and japan wants to talk about it [Music] great job there by aaron young share skills have to be combined with basketball savvy and obviously that’s what you’re seeing lots of communication as well seeing it on particularly the canadian huddle japan’s head coach iwasi yoshiaki with his message to his players remember they’ve started the tournament with two wins they’ve come on strong in those games particularly in the australia game and then had a brilliant second and third quarter against great britain got outscored in the fourth but they built up enough of a lead to hold on the team foul category you see that bottom left two each so no one is in the bonus yet [Applause] number 12 fuji had that double double against great britain she’s 38 she’s been on the team for quite a while her husband shingle fuji is a four-time paralympian in wheelchair basketball so it’s certainly a family affair [Applause] [Music] [Applause] and back underway under two and a half minutes to go opening quarter canada leading 11-4 [Applause] amimoto thinks about the three-pointer still weaving her way in across for hagino [Applause] puts up the shot it won’t drop one thing we should note is that japan’s bench has been very strong throughout the tournament 47 points scored in the in the first two games and they have that opportunity if they need to go to the bench [Applause] cindy wallet [Music] works the pass in for a wide open tamara steves and she does it again off the glass and in [Applause] aaron young with the good defense here on amimoto keeping her to the outside and now she does find her way to the inside oh that looked good she just couldn’t quite finish amamoto mary three times an all star at the japanese nationals just couldn’t finish so the canadian lead could grow to more than 10 here wallet steve’s young no long two-pointer but ouellette gets the rebound canada gets a new 14-second shot clock [Music] lalonde taking the pass looking for somewhere to go finds wallet she’ll take the two-pointer it’s short and japan’s got a break and a chance and a basket for yanigamoto amane [Music] who is named the all-star five at japan’s national in fact at the asia oceania championships an even bigger honor back in 2019 was the tournament that qualified most of the countries for these games however japan of course as the host nation was qualified and it goes for steve’s and this time it just won’t drop [Applause] and canada with the press again but japan breaks it [Music] [Applause] and the two-pointer is good for shimuzu [Music] the basket was hit so the lead is cut to 13 to 8 after one quarter of play at the aryaki arena lots to talk about for both teams no doubt scouting reports as you see it looks like some players are getting ready to come in cara lanes looks like she’s ready to come into the game and there’s the stats canadians shooting 33 from the field [Applause] [Music] [Applause] canadians getting players into the paint and getting those passes in [Music] [Applause] [Music] the captain for japan fuji and there’s the captain for canada wallets [Applause] [Music] so it’s so important to have different ways to score [Applause] [Music] [Applause] you want to be able to get in to the paint and score under the basket you want to be able to score from range if you have some three-point threats even better we begin the second quarter canada leading 13-8 on the host nation japan and canadians trying to push their offense out here another defense out rather force japan’s offense out hagino she’s from sendai works it in for kitada so the canadians do have uh tara lanes and katie dan dino into the game here comes dan dino her first touch of the ball she’s gonna think about three she’s gonna one hand the pass over we’ve got a japanese player behind the play so canada’s got an odd man opera an odd woman opportunity dan dino just drops in it just hung up there on the rim [Applause] [Music] kitada [Music] as we mentioned japan’s strong has been strong coming off the bench and they worked the pass in for yanukomoto but under all kinds of pressure under the basket danino fights off the press [Applause] [Music] takes the three and it’s a little short but canada retains possession [Applause] dantino takes it towards the baseline looking she’s got the mismatch not dropping yet seven point lead canada amimoto [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] looked good [Applause] early stages second quarter 15-8 canadians leading the captain cindy wallet with the ball you can just see her surveying the situation [Music] most point guards they’re thought first is a pass but it’s good to have the option if you’re a good shooter and while that’s a good shooter and that time it bounces out [Applause] [Music] back come japan kitara and the pass was intended there was well it did reach yanagamoto danino [Music] man’s gonna inbound the ball [Music] yamamoto and this is going to go off japan [Applause] [Music] cindy wallet was part of the canadian team she inbounds to dan dino she was part of the canadian team that won gold at the world championships back in 2014. dan dino for three she’s got it from downtown tokyo [Music] yanigamoto [Music] and dandeno back for canada leads a charge of four canadian players so we’ve got a traveling call here on dan dino just a little bobble as she twisted in her chair and the officials didn’t like that coming into the game for japan is zyma izumi [Music] so she replaces uh hagino [Music] [Applause] [Music] second foul already for katie dantono [Music] [Applause] so no movement from the canadian bench yet aaron young would be on standby if needed [Music] sometimes they’re on the floor together that uh needs some crafty classification work back come the canadians or at least different kind of classification setup here’s wallet so coaches always have plans for different lineups using the point system making sure it’s 14 or under and getting different sizes different players with different skill sets and they’ve got it all figured out itada she’s got time from the free throw line no rebounded though by japan [Music] and they’re going to call an offensive foul here on amamoto [Music] and you can see them tara lanes saying i didn’t do that and in this case the official agreed dan dino wallet and for lalonde puts it in she was kind of expecting the pass kind of not but she was did well to grab it and then take advantage of the break [Music] yamamoto weaving her way into the lane under pressure so she dishes off agino yamamoto so canada is keeping japan to uh poorer shot selection than they might want canadians only have a four players on offense because one is down dandano [Applause] wallet and it is tara lanes who’s down on the play right now now the whistle will blow and she’ll get help getting back up again so what happens if the uh players fall it’s almost never an injury they’ll tell you that it’s just sometimes you’re strapped into the chair and the way the impairment the disability however you want to describe it is it doesn’t allow the some of the players to get back up again so sometimes it’s it’s an advantage for the opposition for a few seconds [Music] there’s the shot by kyotaro kataman she hits it [Music] take your part and a steal by japan loose ball right at the center line and it’s scooped up by cindy wallet what a play [Applause] came in to save the day big smile on her face as well dishes off for lalonde she’s got room she puts it in the lead is 22-10 now for canada [Applause] are two countries that uh will get together sometimes and play each other one will go to the japan will come to canada or canada will come to japan uh pre-cove at times of course and get together for training camps and play each other for several games over several days and just to help each other’s programs develop [Music] timeout call japan trailing now by 14 points katie danano playing with a couple of fouls already so that may affect the way she plays a little bit but the fact that her team is already out by 14 is significant japan wants to talk about this another thing that makes japan’s results so impressive is that they did not qualify for the rio paralympic games did not qualify for the london paralympic games and did not qualify for the last world championship so they have put together a team at home that is uh showing that they are in the mix for quarterfinals and then once you get there then who knows but significant improvements from those results [Music] has been one of the key players for japan aaron young back into the game now for canada hussain lai is in the game as well [Applause] [Music] zima amimoto [Applause] [Music] pushed to the outside she’ll shoot from there short young the rebound sends it ahead for dendino really good hustle by yanigamoto but dendon’s got the size mismatch can’t get it to drop and good play by japan defending there yamamoto [Applause] quizada [Applause] [Music] and canada defending and you can hear katie danano yelling juice because that is the nickname of aaron young who takes the pass and drops it in and another steal by canada this time it’s elite tessier who’s into the game and we’ve got a foul call on japan and hagino that’s her first personal second team foul for japan 253 remaining in the second quarter 16 point lead for canada substitutions now in for japan to shida [Music] and the long shot from aaron young hits on the three-pointer and it’s a 19-point lead toshita [Applause] in her first paralympic games for fuji [Applause] dandano with that height advantage just all over her shot clock winding down did she get it up in time she did but it misses japan rebounding and we’ve got the foul call so the foul on elite tessier but boy that’s a good play by japan getting the shot off on time it doesn’t drop but getting the rebound and uh drawing the foul and now they’ve got a new 14 second shot clock to work with here’s fuji [Applause] shishida aguino and easily taken away from the size advantage from dandino tessier young [Music] takes her time weaves in to the lane puts it up won’t drop down to no rebound that won’t drop young rebound that’ll finally drop and it’s 31-10 canada they are rolling going to the bench trying to find something different to change the tide fuji 38 year old veteran she’s got time and space hits straight from the free throw line and that’s worth two [Music] [Applause] dandino testier [Music] [Applause] dandeno [Music] and we’ve got three in the key so uh the three second violation called against canada’s terror lanes [Music] air lanes from north vancouver she owns her own business selling adaptive mountain bikes she was a former professional mountain biker and bmx racer our injury happened in fact [Music] she names uh marnie abbott peter and richard peter and joe higgins as her heroes and influences in the wheelchair basketball game more well-known names and wheelchair basketball canada lore [Applause] puts it up puts it in nice shot by toshita miumi the 44 year old from yashio who spent some time training with the dutch national team back in 2018 [Applause] that she asked them that a couple years before finally got an answer and wanted to just see how they trained and how they became such a force in women’s wheelchair basketball [Applause] canadians pressing again toshita lobs it ahead it’s going to be stolen though picked up by young [Music] [Applause] and we’ve got a foul call here against japan’s odejimari [Music] [Applause] back to young puts it up three won’t drop but tessier gets the rebound just as the first half comes to an end an impressive first half particularly second quarter for canada outscoring japan 18-6 in the quarter and now leading 31-14 at halftime here in tokyo canadians shooting 40 from the field a little under their average in the opening game japan though just 24 on seven of 29 shots so canadian coach uh mark antoine duchamp has to be happy with his team see on the left of the screen tamara steves and she’s had a couple of baskets in this one [Applause] canada spreading the scoring around cindy willett has picked up six points [Applause] and for japan fuji six points to lead their offensive output both teams captains will let in fuji abandoned arrested the opening quarter came in for the second and has thus far scored five points picked up five rebounds as well [Music] [Applause] and that was the long pass from dandino to young the backboard to the bucket and there you see those numbers 40 percent from the field defensive rebounding edge for canada and all in all it’s a 31-14 lead for canada over japan at halftime oh [Applause] is [Applause] [Music] so oh [Music] so [Music] [Applause] united states [Music] [Music] rocket [Music] great so [Music] [Music] [Applause] ladies and gentlemen we’ve had some amazing action throughout the paralympics so far let’s check out our metal tally people’s republic of china has eight gold medals great britain six gold medals the russian paralympic committee with six gold medals and australia and fourth with six gold medals also of course the united states of america they have two goals belarus has two ukraine also has one and brazil and all these guys rounding out the middle talent [Music] let’s throw to some of the highlights from yesterday’s paralympics [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Applause] [Music] so foreign [Music] [Applause] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Applause] so [Music] [Music] [Applause] now [Applause] [Applause] [Music] foreign [Music] [Applause] just over a minute away from second half action at the ariaki arena in this group a match between japan and canada canadians with a 31-14 lead and there’s the five that will start for japan we just saw the five that will start for canada japan will look to have the kind of third quarter they had against great britain where they stymied stymied great britain’s offense and they poured in the points they outscored great britain 16 to 8. free-throw shooting has not been a factor in this game only two shots so far from the free throw line rosalie lalonde from canada sunk one of the two so that’s uh very insignificant see if the second half is different so here we go second half action team canada team japan canadians leading by 31-14 score it’s katie dandino works it in for cindy wallet puts it up puts it in from the left wing and the exact kind of start that japan was hoping to avoid but they’re gonna get their offense going now they’re gonna try with amamoto mari [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] fuji yanagamoto [Applause] and [Music] [Applause] [Music] i missed the call there but it’s definitely going to be japan ball [Music] thinking about the three instead dishes off for fuji and shot clock just running out on japan’s offense [Music] inbounding for rosalie lalonde both with background at the university of alabama and that long shot rattles out hagino now under pressure from wallet fuji inside yamamoto draws the foul and will go to the line and i’m sure that’s part of the strategy be more aggressive going to the basket for japan tara lane’s picking up the foul and utter silence here at the ariaki arena all the japanese players though arm and arm on the bench yamamoto yes this one will fall [Applause] [Applause] [Music] hey [Music] so uh dan dano puts it up and puts it in that was just after vienna gamoto picked up her third personal foul already for japan fuji underneath for amimoto [Music] and an offensive foul here is called [Music] on yamamoto [Music] odajima coming into the game now for japan in place of vienna gamoto after three fouls here’s dan dino under the basket no mistake a.d dandino [Applause] canadian cry for defense and they’re trying to block them out fuji [Music] and that reach of dendino just to get to that ball [Applause] playing a key role for canada in this game [Applause] nice little pass underneath for lalonde and the assist from dandino and just a well-constructed play with wallet to dandano had to reach and then made the pass and here comes odajima nicely done for japan [Music] [Applause] both of those uh players come from canada’s west coast british columbia there’s cindy wallet the native of riviere de luz [Music] [Applause] [Music] so the canadian lead 41-17 three minutes into the second half looking to improve to two-and-oh a long way from that yet but comfortably out front marc antoine do charms team looking good so far to begin this tokyo tournament kitada otajima [Music] and the reaching in foul called on odojima or at least on uh [Music] trying to make the kind of impact that a lot of people know she can mvp of the all japan championships four times but so far has been held fairly well in check here’s katie dan to know that’s short rebounded by japan and here is katara drops it off for hagino [Music] japan having trouble setting up any kind of screens [Applause] here’s qatar maybe now she’s got enough of a screen and she hits it so the 32 year old with 16 points against great britain that’s for just her fourth here there’s a long shot by canada misses wallet thinks about another instead passes to den oh has the size mismatch but it goes across to wallet puts it up it’s short and here comes japan kushida all alone off the window and in [Music] transition attack for japan making no mistake of the opportunity but the canadian lead is still 20 points paulette dan dino lanes [Applause] wallet up bounces out vandana scoops up the loose ball [Music] and then fires nothing but net [Music] and give dandeno 11 points [Applause] canadians are making life difficult for japan and we’ve got an offensive foul called against japan and keith tada did not like that call at all [Music] you just hear the communication of the players on the benches one of the days here we had some school kids in attendance a little extra noise in the house they’re all spread out socially distanced around the stadium the stadium will eventually hold 15 000 it’s an absolutely beautiful building as we see canada hit another basket and give number 13 now 13 points katie dan dino so cindy will add his back picked out of this uh right now but that’s four on four and japan takes advantage shahiro [Applause] like canada getting ready to pretty much make a full-scale change here in a few minutes [Applause] and here come the substitutions [Music] and if this was ice hockey this would be a full line change so it is in fact all five players changing for canada elite tessier is in aaron young is in danielle duplessis is in her first paralympic action and tamara steves is back in the game as well as poison lee [Applause] here comes japan chihiro odjima no rebounded by young [Applause] [Music] duplessis underneath for steve’s whose hands did it go off last steve’s hands says the official 45-23 under three and a half minutes to go in the third quarter canada leading japan 2-0 coming into this game after wins over australia and great britain canada also beating great britain and of course a bit of a surprise that great britain has begun the tournament owen two they were the silver medalists from the last world championships and fourth at the last paralympic games [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Applause] an offensive foul called on canada’s danielle du plessis [Music] she comes from fredericton new brunswick does duplessis first paralympic games for the 24 year old ace is really slow down here amamoto inside kitada rims out and scooped up by aaron young [Applause] weaves her way into the key nice little dish inside and the shot from duplesses won’t fall and back comes japan it’s no [Music] rebound no [Music] so japan getting the opportunities and can’t get it to drop tessier du plessy steves up and in tamara steves is just excellent on those layups and the assist to deplesis [Applause] [Applause] [Music] so that was kittada [Applause] [Music] she’s got eight points [Applause] steve young [Music] [Applause] and for steve’s and tamara steves has got it going on eight points for number eight [Applause] [Music] [Applause] erin young weaving her way into the offensive port [Applause] young shot clock winding down and it got off on time rebounded though by japan [Music] [Applause] [Music] and the shot is up and the rebound is well it’s on the floor and it’s going to be the jump and it’ll be japan ball they have the possession arrow [Music] rattles in and out and this is gonna be a foul on japan and it is agino so they are in the bonus so they’re gonna get a chance to shoot here canadian lead already 49-25 final half minute of the third quarter aaron young to shoot from st elbert alberta just outside of edmonton [Music] and the official wants to make sure the players aren’t rolling into the key before the shot and didn’t matter because young sinks it and it’s an 11-point game for aaron young [Music] yamamoto rather [Music] [Applause] and canadians under pressure here get it ahead to tessier in for giannis and seconds winding down and that’s going to do it for the third quarter so after three quarters of play the canadians swell out front here 51-25 on team japan canada improving to 44 and actually japan improving to 24 27 from the field as well [Music] danano continuing to make an impression on this game as is cindy wallette both teams using their bench canada i believe has used every player again in this game [Applause] and that’s the way if you can do it that’s what you want to do and get everyone involved in the game all but one player on the canadian roster has appeared in the game and for japan they’ve used all but two of their players you never know when you need that player later in the tournament you want them to be not all of a sudden playing their first minutes when there’s maybe a medal or a position in a metal game on the line this little pass there from young and tamara steves has had a really nice game for canada eight points [Music] so canadians out scoring japan in each of the quarters 13 8 18 6 and twenty eleven [Music] [Applause] [Music] and back in action now for the third quarter at the ariaki arena japanese team in red and black the canadian team in white and red aaron young her second paralympic games goes for the three misses giannis rebounding gives it to dan dino [Applause] [Music] works it in for young little bobble and it rattles out [Applause] fuji [Applause] uses the glass but it won’t fall rebound and [Applause] foul call on elite tessier that’s the third foul on tessier [Music] fan working the ball in for fuji and the miss it’ll be team canada ball heading on offense early stages fourth quarter in the driver’s seat in this group a match the other teams in group a are great britain germany australia [Applause] and there’s the shot 10 10 teams by the way in the uh women’s tournament so five in each group and canada extending that with a three-pointer from dendino and give her 16 points in the game [Applause] and that one almost stuck up there [Applause] so both players uh the big four point fives are in the game for canada young and dandeno giannis and just out of the reach of dendino [Applause] trying to find the tall player in the key [Applause] yasuo in the game for japan number 22 gives it to fuji and she feeds it in for zyma she had a path to the basket [Applause] and here comes young [Music] canadians have back picked out one of the japanese players here’s young on the offense and puts it off the glass and in and aaron young has got a 13-point game going along with five assists [Applause] canadians have spread out the offense no rebound dandino picks it up she’s encroaching on a double-double with 16 points and eight rebounds there’s the shot and there’s the bucket [Applause] katie dan dino hits another three to give her 19. [Music] [Applause] [Music] veteran of the japanese team you know she says when she was younger she suffered from an eating disorder but her involvement in sport has made a big difference in helping her to overcome that it’s good to hear athletes talking about things that have affected them ways that they have struggled and how they have dealt with things fuji yes so japan with some little a little bit of uh some efficiency here and some couple of buckets [Music] but the score still comfortably for canada 59-29 yasuo [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] fuji love the passing here by japan puts it up short gets her own rebound new clock hits it nicely done fuji and timeout call by canada with japan on a little bit of a run here [Applause] and obviously the canadian coaches led by mark antoine ducharme want to nip it in the bud if possible still see that comfortable lead 28 points in the fourth quarter is very comfortable but you don’t want to get into bad habits canada’s next game will be against germany japan’s next game and their final game of the tournament will be against germany as well german team with the star players like marika miller [Music] all right here we go tessier done to know [Applause] canadians on offense [Music] giannis up and in for tara giannis [Applause] [Music] [Applause] and the ball rattles out on fuji’s attempt [Music] otherwise they had a kind of a back and forth with canada the scoring has been 10-6 canada here in the fourth quarter so far eighty dandeno trying to spin away from zyma pass across for young and an offensive foul is called here against canada arianes [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] always the subject of uh other teams [Music] defensive strategies no doubt but she has persevered again today along with the rest of her teammates and the canadians have really spread the scoring around well [Music] bandino [Applause] cassier giannis and off for hands and out [Music] [Applause] so the way canada’s roster is uh on the lineup on the floor right now you’ve got the two 4.5 players young and uh dan dino and then you’ve got melanie haughton who’s a one pointer tara giannis who’s a one and a half sorry hotten is also a one and a half and then [Music] elodie tessier who’s a two and a half so if you do the math quickly in your head you’ll come up with 14 points hagino takes and gives and gets it back and sends a pass across standalone got a hand on it but then it goes out it’ll be japan ball with nine seconds on the shot clock [Music] and hagino inbounding to sushita hagino three on the shot clock and it’s going to run out but in fact canada is going to grab the ball anyway here comes aaron young and using her speed and then trying to cut into the lane but getting fouled and canada’s gonna do some swapping again [Music] and we’re gonna have at least four players coming into the game [Applause] [Music] [Applause] and the referee is saying just wait a moment not yet and they’re going to review what happened on that called foul that aaron young just drew the officials have the benefit of video technology they can use it and they want to make sure that what they’re seeing is what they thought they saw was the japanese players in a defensive position did she or was she moving and did she take the foul in fact so obviously there’s a bit of a discussion on the floor about that so less than five minutes to play fourth quarter canada comfortably out front by 30 points here but they still want to get these calls right and the uh referee shufe along with ben wood wanting to make sure that they’ve got this set and straight and it is what they thought it was so now that they’ve called the foul and confirmed it now the substitutions will come in for canada so a little bit of confusion there but we’re all set the [Music] making her debut at the paralympic games number 12 for canada here’s wallet [Applause] and now lalonde [Applause] and japan trying to get it across the timeline and wallet thought she might have a hand on it did get a hand on it here comes japan hagino can’t get the drop and cindy willett the canadian captain pushes it ahead to berube and watch how quickly pops right back on her wheels [Music] taking the uh foul for japan here’s lalon burube lalonde willette [Music] all the way across for berube inside for [Music] now it comes back to berube and that close to getting her first paralympic basket [Applause] fuji fuji rather we’ve got a call against well what it was is the timeline violation you got to get across the center line in eight seconds japan couldn’t do it because the press of canada so good on the canadians it’s all about aggressiveness and chair skills and they pull it off and so it’ll be canada ball [Music] takes the pass from ouellette gives it to steve’s boilette lalonde they’re gonna let her shoot so she’s gonna shoot and it rattles out but rebounded by lay in for lalonde and that had a chance [Music] and hustling back on defense’s wallet picks up the ball and now it’s japan trying to press the canadians but wallet finds lalonde who finds wallet and for lie steve’s four on the shot clock inside for lalonde dishes off for ruby and it won’t fall in [Music] [Applause] short she gets her own rebound [Applause] toshita [Applause] up and in for toshida she’s the mayumi who spent time training with the dutch national team [Music] it’s wallet they leave her alone so she takes the shot at short rebounded by kitara toshida [Music] team japan trying to get some positive energy going here to end this one [Applause] and foul call against canada it’s against rosalie lalonde [Music] rosalie in her collegiate career was an all tournament uh player at the championship in well this season this past season [Music] and nicely done by wallet weaving in and out to get the ball to the midcourt line gives to berube back to willett she’s got room tries a little dish underneath for lalonde she was all tied up with uh hagino thought there was a foul and none none called we’re down to just over 90 seconds to play in the fourth quarter team canada will improve to two and oh in the tournament japan’s record will fall to two and one gotta finish this one out of course toshita [Applause] trying to shake off the aggressiveness of lye and the foul called [Applause] [Music] so we’re down to a minute 13 to go here again japan trying to finish this game with some positive energy maybe score the final bunch of points that might be in their minds knowing that germany is next up interestingly enough germany feeling the same way they are getting ready for their next game and they’ll their next two games will be against these two teams berube takes canada on offense gives to steves dishes for wallet less than 10 on the shot clock in for steve she’s got time and space had a chance for 10. canadians are going to get the ball back here and lalon will inbound for the canadians for berube wallet [Music] oh it’s stolen by kitada and berube almost got a hand in there there’s kitada’s shot intercept or at least misses and the rebound picked up and we’ve got a japanese player down and hagino fights to get herself right head agino a solid player for team japan named an all-star five the under 25 world championships back in 2015 so number 10 for japan hagino is uh definitely a go-to player for them for ruby they really want to get sandrine berube her first bucket and it won’t drop final seconds now maybe one last flurry for japan [Applause] puts up the three and it won’t fall so team canada with a 61-35 win over japan to improve to 2-0 here in the tokyo tournament and japan’s record drops to two and one canadians really spreading around the offense in this one and getting a 19 point game from katie dantono a 13-point game from aaron young and cindy willa did end up with a 10-point game and a double double with 10 rebounds so a good game for the canadian captain and an all-around good effort for mark antoine ducharme’s team as canada comes to tokyo improving now to two and o beating the host team here at the aryaki arena and stats back it up 40 percent from the field for the winning team free throws not much of a factor in this one [Music] [Applause] [Music] there you see the standings uh technically [Applause] at 2-0 you would think canada would be on top of the group [Music] certainly a strong effort by the canadians start to finish they outscore japan in the first quarter second quarter third quarter the teams traded baskets in the fourth it was a 10-10 saw off but all when all was said and done 61 for canada 35 for japan as both teams are well into their wheelchair basketball tournament here in tokyo [Applause] do [Music] [Applause] [Music] bye is [Music] together together [Applause] so [Applause] say one two three oh [Music] that’s the problem is fantastic foreign yes [Applause] [Music] brothers [Music] he knows so [Music] [Music] yes [Music] with a

points they were african champions in 2016 and won the african paralympic qualifiers to actually be here where she was mvp and made the all-star team she’s a great player and a great defender and obviously a player to watch [Music] foreign she’s also an amazing player now they’ve played two games already they’ve won one lost one she’s averaged 15 points eight rebounds and six assists she’s doing it at both ends of the court she’s a great talent she made her international debut in 2016 she scores she rebounds she’s their team leader and why we have her as a key player [Music] [Music] there’s a lot of talent on this course but that’s just two of our key players for this next round the game [Applause] [Applause] uh [Applause] [Music] [Applause] me [Music] hey [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] okay uh [Applause] women’s wheelchair basketball at the ariaki arena it’s the netherlands against algeria third game of the tournament for the netherlands second game of the tournament for algeria began with an opening loss to china netherlands also a loss to china but before that a win over usa the dutch team on the right of your screen coming in as the reigning world champions won that title back in 2018 beating great britain in the gold medal game and they have been recent paralympic bronze medalists in rio it’s time to meet our two teams first algeria and on the other side algeria we’ll see their team in just a moment winners of the african championships to qualify hold on no number six one of the key numbers there is number nine kim ghani she was the most valuable player of the african championships the qualifying tournament and an all-star at that tournament algeria finished 10th at the rio paralympic games in 2016 12th at the 2018 world championships and they’re in this tough group b with china netherlands spain and usa please welcome the netherlands the dutch team as we mentioned the reigning world champions reigning european champions [Music] she’s been on this team for six these are now her sixth paralympic games there she is number 11 corver 15. 30 year old paralympic veteran of both nations [Music] is [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] so you’ve got the reigning world champions on the right from the netherlands and you’ve got the up up and comers algeria on the left and the dutch team is coached by kert van der linden who began his career as a paralympic swimmer back in 1980 was a medalist at the games in arnhem and then represented the netherlands in five straight paralympic games in wheelchair basketball here are your officials for the game the red referee from china ono um croatia [Music] [Applause] so the dutch surprised were surprised a little bit in their last game losing to china china coming in and people knew they had a good team no doubt about it netherlands coming to tokyo with gold medal aspirations after winning the world championships they started well with the win although a tight win over the u.s on day one work awfully hard to get it then on day two saw the dutch come up cold offensively against china especially in the third quarter only didn’t score any points in the third quarter and that was a bit of a shocker and eventually lost 45-38 but again it’s only group play top four teams from the group go through to the quarterfinals and they’re in good shape they know that one of the dutch players bullcrammer you know asked about that game and why the netherlands offense was so poor she said we just didn’t find each other the same as we found each other against the us don’t know why but it is a fact we have to keep playing defense and i think we did that because they only scored 45 points which isn’t much but we scored 38 and that’s way too low in the third quarter zero points that’s just not our game she did want to confirm though that they played they thought they played well defensively but the offense just wasn’t what it has to be or needs to be [Applause] [Music] well-known coach in wheelchair basketball circles very successful has coached the and they’re starting five ilsa arts yitzka visser mariska buyer the there she is the mvp of the last world championships in 2018. captain karina de roy am i missing someone oh of course bull crammer so crammer even though she’s still young still only 22 was already part of the dutch team that played at the 2014 world championships [Applause] and here we go [Music] team netherlands team algeria and a buyer pokes the ball to cramer and bocamer dynamic player gives to buyer and makes no mistake on the opening shot of the game for maritzka fire the 30 year old who went to university in the states at the university of wisconsin-whitewater and if you uh hear her interviews she speaks absolutely 100 perfect english tweets and and instagrams in english as you will get with a lot of the dutch players this is ken ghani was the mvp of the african championships the algeria captain gives it to mahimda they run out of time on the shot clock you’ve only got 24 seconds and he didn’t get the shot on the rim in the 24. and so it’ll be karina de roy for the netherlands in her fifth paralympic games they’re gonna leave it open for will she shoot no takes it over to the left wing works it in for buyer and second basket of the game for mariska buyer one of her nicknames is the beast he’s playing in her third paralympic games played 40 minutes in the opener against the us and that one went right down pretty much to the wire at least in the last few minutes [Music] american team coming in as the reigning paralympic champions but only three players returning from that squad it’ll be dutch ball here early stages of this one you’ve just uh joined us and maybe this is your first game of the paralympics we should explain a little about the point classification system teams are only around 14 points on the floor and that relates to a level of disability impairment so an risk a buyer there you see her number 15 she’s a 4.0 player the highest is 4.5 [Music] meaning considerably less impairment than the players who you see sitting low in their chairs fire ahead for calmer and beaucomers first basket of the game she is studying uh physiotherapy in university [Music] [Applause] and tonight algeria works the ball in for zara can’t get their team’s first basket here comes cramer again and tries to jam a pass in there for deroy and i think we’re gonna get a foul call against algeria hello [Applause] [Music] and algeria trying to set up a screen and then work the ball inside buyer though just does not want to let zara get the shot here comes deroy and the dutch captain watch it drop in and so we’re getting a timeout call already here early on marina de roy who just sank that basket playing in her fifth paralympic games as we mentioned she was in athens where they finished seventh she was in beijing they were sixth in rio or in london and rio where the dutch team were bronze medalists and her husband by the way anton deroy represented the netherlands as well in wheelchair basketball at five paralympic games between 92 and 2006 so it’s in the family [Music] [Applause] vander linden the uh ever present sideline man on the dutch sidelines [Applause] [Music] so algeria is still looking for its first points [Music] [Music] and vander linden with something to say with the official to try to get things uh sorted out vander linden’s assistant coach by the way is irene sleuth and here we go inbounding for algeria nebia mahinda has the ball she gives it right back to kem ghani and come gani had a path to the basket couldn’t score it here comes yitzka visser her first layup of the game and nothing button well basket backboard and then net visser is one of the very best low point players in the world she’s a one-pointer 28 year old playing in her fourth paralympic games she plays on the club team in germany the bulls and a really important player on this team and on that team here comes byer again for the uncontested layup and larissa buyers got an eight-point game already [Music] [Applause] so algeria constantly getting the ball into the hands of jamilah kim ghani and she is just looking to get that first basket out of the way bit of a rushed shot there still had a chance here comes de roy but she can’t get to the ball it went off the chair of kadzari sorry in the netherlands thinks about the three-pointer goes for deroy under the basket and tough to shoot from there and that’s an eight-point violation you’ve got to get across the center line in eight seconds algeria could not do it he’s the one who talked about uh how their team went cold offensively against china as buyers already got a 10 point game going along with three rebounds [Music] amgani spinning away from deroy swatted away by calmer it’s gonna be a jump ball it’s gonna go the way of algeria the possession arrow and so inbounding will be number nine who studied economics at the institute of economic sciences in algeria tries the long shot it can’t won’t fall back comes deroy uncontested but she loses the handle so algeria reclaims possession still looking for their first basket of the game ahmed taguchi the the head coach taigoush rather youssef hori his assistant and they began their tournament with a 74-25 loss against china here’s visser with the steal and the welcomer this time gives the netherlands the 18-nothing lead [Music] bull crammer likes to distribute the ball as well she led the european championships with uh just under six assists per game and that was the tournament that qualified the netherlands for tokyo the left-handed layup doesn’t work for de roy and all scooped up visser can’t get to it but it’ll still be netherlands ball or will it be algeria ball i think it’s algeria ball [Music] all right let’s get back under action here is uh [Music] kem genny again on the hunt for that first basket and for bublow who’s just into the game this is her attempt and the ball knocked away under the basket from bozidi kim gunny all the way across but calmer takes it away and now de roy on the fast break and this time the dutch captain makes no mistake [Music] good speed and getting in the open a lot i’m gunny trying to shake off the roy the two captains battling and the uh algerian team still get get their first bucket here’s kramer under the basket does well to take the pass misses the shot the rebound is going to stay with the dutch [Music] [Applause] [Music] substitution has uh frank into the game [Music] [Applause] [Music] kamgani and another eight-second violation against algeria as a buyer shut the door on kamgani the last european championships the dutch team went 7-0 to win and if they want to win gold here that won’t they won’t be undefeated after the loss to chyna here’s camera underneath she gets fouled in the attempt and i think is going to head to the line is first algeria was at the african championships to qualify played south africa and actually beat south africa five games in a row in a five-game series so they certainly earned their right to tokyo 2020. and it is a pretty quiet atmosphere and this one crammer now the talking will start again typically the paralympic wheelchair basketball is played in front of a big crowd sometimes capacity crowds we’ve seen that in well at many paralympic games but london and rio certainly come to mind this building that they’re playing in now will eventually uh will hold crowds of up to 15 000 but we’re glad you’re watching from wherever you’re watching worldwide to enjoy all the same passion and energy via your screens 21-0 for the dutch here in the opening quarter of this game puts it up and this time it won’t drop and she might get another chance here and battles with mahinda who goes down on the players is a 3.0 player 36 year old on the algerian team remember can only add up to 14 points on the floor so you have a combination of high pointers and low pointers [Music] algeria this time crosses the timeline mahinda [Music] she is clearly the top player on this algerian team and that shot from bulau bublao might have touched a dutch hand on the way so it’s going to be algeria ball with six on the shot clock and the dutch will try to play some tough defense and not allow the shot as uh kim gunny looks to inbound gives it to blah blah who makes herself open three on the shot clock two and one she can’t get it up in time with mariska buyer right there in her face so buyer playing in her third paralympic games has a couple of bronze medals already and plays on the club team in hanover germany and that is a combination men and women it’s quite established not only in germany the club system but in spain turkey italy other countries around europe and kangani trying to bust into the lane she’s gonna take uh no she’s thought thought about a long two-pointer now gives to blah and that one just rattles out so still the goose egg for algeria as they get the opportunities here comes buyer dishes off and the foul called and that was uh zina vimanova former handball player when she was in non-disabled sport [Applause] tough luck at time for vimanova she was on the dutch team when they won the world championships and the back-to-back european championships in 2017 and 19 she’s still only 21 though tough defense by the dutch algeria looking for this first one and in the dying seconds of the opening quarter it doesn’t come and so buyer launches a mid-court shot and that misses but uh not a lot of us is by the dutch in the quarter muskego ends up with 12 and the dutch lead it 23-nothing after one quarter of play here at the ariaka arena that’s it [Music] 15. [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Applause] um [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] here we go big opening quarter for the netherlands scoring 23 on algeria and the dutch changed things up share korver coming in in her sixth paralympic games she gives to vander strong julia vander sprung another one of the up and comers a young 21 year old on the dutch team is they not only have the star players they also have the next the next generation that’s kind of going to try to take the baton as they move forward lots of discussion lots of communication on the floor so the dutch just doing a fabulous job of blocking algeria from getting across the timeline and the long pass ends up in the hands of bubla good job she’s trying to protect the ball feed it to kem ghani and kim he finally gets scooped up there’s 12 in the shot clock and they’re nowhere near range mahimda now gets it in for bublau what’s up the shot there it is the opening basket of the game for norhain comes in the opening minute of the second quarter a lot of good second effort on that play to make it happen and quickly fender sprung for the dutch straight back [Music] mahinda looking for kemghani and that’s the thing is that they typically know the opposition that they are looking for kemghani [Applause] [Music] poop lao puts [Music] running out and it gives it right back to the uh the dutch and here’s the roy corver and good defense by [Music] algeria and they still are struggling to get across that timeline with a little twist a little shimmy little shake and had the pass in for vimanova it won’t drop and algeria [Music] it’s not the same kind of chair ability and skills and so it makes it tougher when uh players can’t get the ball can’t uh well just can’t move the same way you’re allowed two pushes and then you’ve got to put the ball on the floor and there’s a basket as algeria gets its second kim guennie finally she’s been working hard to get that korver sweeping in from the left a little short chem gummy picks it up [Applause] and foul call here on deroy [Music] [Applause] substitution coming in for algeria it is uh salami [Music] [Applause] [Music] under pressure from korver goes the other way that ball’s loose kemgeni comes up with it seven on the shot clock and the possession arrow still favors algeria on the jump so they’re gonna inbound with seven on the shot clock salami to inbound finds ken gunny got a bit of room if she can [Music] just kind of go for the circus shot over the dutch player fender sprung [Music] never hit the rim [Music] here’s korver works the pass in for deroy and makes no mistake about it and good pass there for korver to see that and we’ve got the foul call here against deroy i think again you’re second [Music] underneath and just the height disadvantage mismatch was too tough for the buzity the algerian player foul call here against uh netherlands uh played their opening game against the us strong in the fourth quarter to win 68-58 they were down for a lot of that game and then again against china at that the zero point third quarter and went up losing by seven 45-38 they’ll play spain in their final game of the preliminary round algeria’s got spain in their next game as well five teams in each of the two groups top four make the quarterfinals you know there’s lots of gamesmanship in a sense too you don’t want to show too much of your hand to your potential quarterfinals semi-final opponents so if you’re in the dutch you’ve got that to think about in the back of your mind as well aim in front of you and the game in front of that too but right now the players on the floor are thinking about this game kim gunny slings the pass for bublau puts it up and it’s uh going to be still algeria ball so these this algerian team a lot of the players on it the first women’s wheelchair basketball team to represent an african nation at the paralympic games in rio in 2016 korver’s shot misses women overshot misses deroy’s shot goes she’s got that nice little shimmy move but that time it causes the turnover and back come the dutch and this time share korver makes no mistake she’s got six [Music] and this time bublow who’s got lots of height and she scores her second basket of the game she’s got four [Applause] [Music] corber back in for the netherlands pass in for vimanova [Music] going to shake off korver throws up a quick shot misses back comes deroy on the pass and it is good on the layout wheelchair basketball has been part of the paralympic games since the very beginning [Applause] [Music] there’s a miss shot by algeria it was there in the first games in rome in 1960 and the sport just continues to grow as the the dutch team trying to add to its lead the sport of wheelchair basketball has certainly grown alongside the growth and evolution of the paralympic games usa has been the most decorated nation in terms of medals filing up a total of 12 eight for the men four for the women in rio the u.s pulled off the difficult sweep of golds in both men’s and women’s wheelchair basketball tournaments and the sport is becoming increasingly professional as well we’re seeing that with teams in europe gathering top players from across the planet uh incorporating women into the lineups as well with a unique classification system there so it’s uh not just a men’s game and not just a women’s game it’s a combined game players in this game like buyer playing in professional league germany and camera as well and others have done so over the years as well of course covet through some of those leaks into some uncertainty in the last year and a half [Music] trying to add to her count [Music] and back come the dutch and vimanova zena vemenova and she puts in a couple she’s got four [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] and it’s in and the hoop and the arm the basket and the foul [Applause] and nicely done [Music] one point player and she can’t complete the three-point play so pretty impressive though for a 1.0 classification player to fight off that underneath the basket score the two earn the foul share korver all kinds of time just like a free throw she puts it in from the same place [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] a lot of people wonder why athletes don’t get their fingers crushed more often in wheelchair basketball and that’s because the way the wheels are canted inwards if they were all straight up and down it would be much more of an issue and of course there are still lots of injuries and in that respect but not as many as the you might think bubla with the basket for algeria with just over a minute to play in the opening half 49-10 for the netherlands mr buyer back in the game works it in for prank fire basket bingo [Music] inside the final minute now we’ve got foul call and play and it’s against the netherlands and it’s against bronch saskia in her second paralympic games [Music] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] korver for the netherlands off the backboard and in and that’s gonna count and she’ll go to the free throw line so share korver has come into the game and uh she’s on a 10-point game and a chance for 11. finishes it off three-point play half a minute to go [Music] in the opening half team algerian green team at netherlands in white [Applause] [Music] heather [Music] [Applause] the 34 year old who didn’t play in the opening game for algeria is in here today and she’s making a contribution to her team and then buyer hits at the buzzer for three in fact so that will push the dutch lead to 57-12 at halftime here at the aryaki arena an impressive showing by the greening world champions destination [Music] [Music] and so the two teams head to the locker rooms algeria and the netherlands 57 12 for the netherlands after the opening half here in tokyo [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Applause] yes [Music] [Applause] [Music]
