...
Malaysia beat India despite missing their key play maker. India dominated the rebounding battle but their turnovers and poor shot making really hurt them. India's second loss in as many games, as eliminated them from the tournament. Similar to the men's section, they play a rather insignificant third group game against the best team in the group - New Zealand tomorrow at 1 PM tomorrow. 
...
Game might be done. It's an 8-point game but then Malaysia knock down a three-pointer AND the foul.
...
Sidhu tries to jack up a 3 but it doesn't go through. A foul on the other end. 
...
Lead back to 10.
...
India have called timeout but with just under four minutes to go, the result seems to be a foregone conclusion.
...
India starting to lose their momentum.
...
India seem to have lost Grima Merlin to what seems to be a knee or a calf injury.
...
India getting it done defensively. It's time they start making buckets!
...
Malaysia's lead down to 2. India still with the momentum, can they make it count?

...
Malaysia strike back with a 3.
...
India completes a three-point play via Anjana P. OH! She makes yet another layup off of the steal. 5 straight from her.
...
Much needed from Malaysia. India needs to start taking advantage of their offensive rebounds, they can't seem to get them in the first or second attempt. 
...
India's defense stepping up once again. They force an 8-second violation.
...
Other than the second quarter, Malaysia have been in foul trouble in every quarter. In the fourth quarter, they commit a foul just 10 seconds in.
...
India bounce back into the game, cutting the lead down to just four points. They outscored Malaysia 18-11 and while a large part of it is Malaysia's shooting cooling down, credit must be given to India's defense. It's really gotten them back into the game, not to mention their relatively new offensive style they picked up - driving to the basket more. They hardly shot any long balls. 
...
After a red-hot second-quarter, Malaysia can't seem to get any offense going. They've only scored 9 points in the third period so far.
...
India pressuring the ball once again, and they force yet another turnover. Chance to cut the lead to less than 5.
...
Skaria going to work once again, lays in the ball off the drive. India with all the momentum, having gone on a spectacular run. Lead is just down to 5.
...
Yet another defensive stop by India. Chance to cut the lead to five or lesser.
...
Malaysia in the penalty once again. Free-throws for India. 
...
7-0 run by India, the lead is down to seven.
...
Another defensive stop by India. Time to start making buckets.
...
She makes the free-throw and cuts the lead down to 9.
...
AND-ONE opportunity for Skaria.
...
India are playing good defense but are struggling to score on their own possessions. Turnovers have been a huge reason why they are trailing by double digits right now.
