Road to olympics 2012 - qualifying tournament
Jun 26th, 2012 at 8:12pm
 
For those wishing to follow the qualifying tournament in women's bb, here's the final standings.

http://london2012.fiba.com/pages/tur/fe/12/olym/p/lid//sid/6226/group-standing.h...

The tournament is happening in Ankara, Turkey, thus the site is half English and half Turkish. But it is not too difficult to understand.

Currently the preliminary group games are still ongoing. #1 and #2 teams from each group will go on to the quarterfinals.

The winner of the 4 quarterfinals games will automatically qualify for the olympic games. A fifth team will also be selected from the losers to qualify for the olympics.

Here's the schedule for the remainder of the games:

New Zealand's out.  Wonder if having Jess McCormack would've helped them at all...
