Last minute The world stood up after Putins decision in

Mali’s women’s basketball team kicked off the 2022 World Cup, scheduled for September 22-October 1 in Australia, with an 89-56 loss to the Japanese on September 22 in Sydney. Faced with the Olympic vice-champions, the Malians were dominant in rebounding but too clumsy in attack (25.6% success in shooting), like their star Sika Koné (10 points and 14 rebounds). Next meeting for them in group B against the Australians on September 23.
