The Japan women’s basketball team gave world No. 2 Australia a huge fright before succumbing to an 84-73 loss to suffer a series sweep on Tuesday.

Japan, which was without star player Ramu Tokashiki for the three-game series, was crushed 80-41 and 81-55 in the opening two games but stunned the Australians by taking a 43-42 halftime lead in the finale at Yoyogi National Gymnasium No. 2.
