With 26 turnovers their loss came at no shock. Just disapointment.
The Opals have played the same throughout the whole tournament and were always going to be exposed by a team who played with more heart. Their defensive pressure was lacking and their offensive play was lazy. Like most games they only tried to make a come back in the fourth quarter and it had worked up until Serbia.
Mitchell played well but was unaware of the time in the last dying seconds and held onto the ball for too long. She should of passed it to Cambage who could have got two points.
I personally think one player made the biggest difference to the team, and that being Lauren Jackson (retired). Jackson is arguably one of the best players of all time. She has left an obvious gap in the team, one they struggled to fulfill.
Opals stunned by Serbia to go crashing out of Olympics
