Unfortunately, the losing streak for team Sri Lanka continued as Kazakhstan thrashed them (92-53) in the FIBA Asia Under 18 Basketball Championship for women at Bangkok, Thailand.
The Sri Lankans were drawn with Hong Kong, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia and Singapore.
In match one, Sri Lanka lost 87-41 to Hong Kong. They were totally outplayed from the start. Lack of confidence took them to their second embarrassing defeat against Indonesia (73-47).
In match three, Sri Lanka came close to upset Thailand but the opposition held their nerve to finish 50-40. The Malaysians were well on top, beating Sri Lanka (71-46) in the fourth game.
Overall, the Sri Lankans were not competitive enough to proceed to round two.
