India's journey in women's basketball comes to an end as they exit in the quarterfinals, facing North Korea.


The Indian women's basketball team saw their quarterfinal dreams come to an end in the Asian Games on Monday, suffering a 57-96 defeat at the hands of North Korea. The Indian team struggled throughout the match, with North Korea dominating in all four quarters, which ended 20-26, 6-26, 17-22, and 14-22, respectively, at the Shaoxing Olympic Sports Centre Gymnasium. Despite a promising start in the first quarter, the Indian players were outclassed in the subsequent three quarters. Earlier in the tournament, India secured a second-place finish in Group A by defeating Indonesia 66-46 and Mongolia 68-62, but they faced a formidable challenge against defending champions China and lost 53-111.
