India eventually loses the game. They tried really hard to make a game of it but their scoring drought at the beginning of the fourth quarter really gave away their chances. Captain Limaye was clearly the biggest contributor.  Clearly, the stat that was the difference maker was rebounds. Jamaica won the rebounding battle handsomely 54-34, including 19 offensive rebounds. 


...
With just over a minute left, India can't keep the pressure on. They fail to score and in the following possession are forced to foul Jamaica. 
...
Jamaica making this interesting with their multiple turnovers under India's ball pressure. India gave away this game at the beginning of the quarter but are not giving up that easy. They have been making baskets off of Jamaica's turnovers in the final two minutes of the game. It's a seven-point game. 
...
The Indian women not giving up though. Putting pressure on the ball and converting that to buckets on consecutive possessions. 
...
India showing glimpses of life but it's just not enough.
...
The game's just been blown open here in the fourth quarter. Jamaica has made this a double-digit lead and have absolutely dominated the offensive glass. Unlike the previous three quarters, Jamaica have been making their offensive rebound count by laying those balls back in.  
...
India's offensive problems have really been highlighted in the final quarter. Through the first six minutes of the final period, they have only scored 2 points. 
...
Jeena Skaria knocks down a buzzer beater but is it little too late? That was India's first basket of the fourth quarter and they've just given up too many. They currently trail by 7 (45-52).
...
The size in the paint for Jamaica just hurting India 
...
India giving up way too many offensive rebounds, a majority of those to Jennifer George. First possession of the final quarter doesn't start too well for India.
...
A couple of possessions of sloppy basketball by both teams. Timeout called with Jamaica leading 48-43.
...
Jamaica gets offensive rebounds on back-to-back possession. Both result in baskets, increasing their lead to five points. 
...
Captain Limaye has been lethal, especially from beyond the arc. She's 4-of-4 on 3's and makes another to cut the lead down to 1.

...
A rare offensive rebound for India via Rajapriyadarshani and she lays it in for 2 points. On the other end, India give up a bucket to allow the lead to balloon back to 4 points.
...
Both teams have traded a bucket each. Jamaica still leads 33-29.
...
Captain Limaye has almost played the entire game and a huge concern now is her foul trouble. Early in the third quarter, she picks up her third foul. 
...
The second half is underway

...
India's captain Shireen Limaye, has led from the front, scoring a majority of the team's points. Can she continue her strong show and lead the team a possible victory? 
...
A huge competitive game on our hands, with it being just a 4-point game. 
...
To combat Jamaica's interior dominance, India has been playing the zone defense quite well but that has been leading to more offensive rebounds for Jamaica but they haven't been able to convert on them either. Despite India's offensive issues, they finish the first half with a better shooting percentage than Jamaica. 
...
Sonkar had a steal and a no-look assist in that 6-0 run. The game is back down to 4 points (26-21).
...
This has been a game of runs. India now retaliates with a 6-0 run, 4 of which have come from Rajapriyadarshani.
...
India is playing well in transition but the problem has been getting those rebounds and creating those situations.
