The women started their day with a 21-3 victory over Indonesia in the quarter-final to see them advance to the semi-final where they faced New Zealand.

It was a battle as the scores were tied up at 5-5 halfway before Australia were able to score a seven-point cushion with 90 seconds to play but New Zealand weren't finished and mounted a comeback.

With the game into extra period, both teams struggled to make a shot but the Aussies lost Micaela Cocks off a rebound and she drained the long-range basket to claim a 19-18 win.

It not only ended Australia's undefeated streak at the tournament but crushed their dreams of defending their FIBA 3x3 Asia Cup gold medal but they had to put the disappointment behind them to take on Japan in the bronze medal match.

The two sides faced each other in the pool match so Australia took advantage of Keely Froling's height to block any Japanese lay-up attempts.

But Australia was struggling to score as they started to feel the effects of a busy few days and only led by a point at the halfway mark.

A couple of shots fell for Australia and the onslaught began as they set up a 17-5 win to claim the bronze medal.
