    FIBA bans Japan this afternoon. The JBA's incompetence and partizan politics alongside the failure to merge the NBL and BJ-League after four years of lip services have the women's program as a casualty.

    You have to love these women's spirit and optimism that they can play in the upcoming FIBA Asia at the chance to play in the Rio Olympics.

    I share the frustration of these national team players that they may miss the Rio Olympic qualifiers.

    She remains optimistic but fears that she may miss the chance to play for a Rio 2016 Olympic qualification.

    Ramu Tokashiki who will sign with the WNBA's Seattle Storm stated that the FIBA suspension on Japan was one of the reason she decided to sign with Seattle.

    It frees up her summer so she can work out with the team.

    Despite FIBA ban, Kawabuchi Saburo is confident that the ban will be lifted when he attends FIBA's central board meeting to discuss the progress made by the JBA 2024 task force. With Saburo's blessing, JBA names 19 players for FIBA Asia 2015.

    Ai Mitani (Fujitsu Red Wave)
    Yoshida Asami (JX-Eneos)
    Wang Cenjing (Mitsubishi)
    Maki Takata (Denso)
    Mika Kurihara (Toyota)
    Yuka Mamiya (JX-Eneos)
    Iju Minami (Denso Iris)
    Ramu Tokashiki (JX Eneos)
    Chinatsu Yamamoto (Fujitsu Red Wave)
    Mio Shinozaki (Fujitsu Red Wave)
    Kaede Kondo (Toyota)
    Shana-sei Motokawa (Chanson Magic)
    Aya Watanabe (Mitsubishi)
    Rui Machida (Fujitsu Red Wave)
    Yuki Miyazawa (JX-Eneos)
    Miyoshi Minaho (Chanson Magic)
    Eiko Nagaoka (Fujitsu Red Wave)
    Miyuki Kawamura (Chanson Magic)
    Evelyn Mawuli (Aisin)

    The team's core is composed of the strong players from JX-Eneos lead by Tokashiki who is now with the WNBA Seattle Storm. Also, Fujitsu is another strong team that of which players will also merge with JX-Eneos and Denso Iris to form the national team.

    Japan lost to Australia the first of a 3-game series played in Dandenong, 86-65.
    Box score

    Japan played w/out Tokashiki who is with WNBA, while it seems that Liz Cambage, who should be back from her injujry, is for now out of selectors consideration.

    The Australian 3-game series finished 2-1 for Jayco Opals, who lost the final game to Japan 76-75.
    Box score
    Motokawa was high for JPN with 24, surprisingly the rebounding count finished even.
    Australia obviously missing several WNBAers.

    I must watch the youtube replays of the Opals vs Japan women soon.

    Next up for Japan women is the Chinese Taipei women's team that they will play in a 3 game charity friendly.

    Japan's Team B finished bronze in the Jones Cup. Bright future for several players.
