Australia’s Cambage ejected from gold medal final

Australia's Cambage ejected from gold medal final

Australian centre Elizabeth Cambage, the leading scorer in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games women’s basketball tournament, was disqualified from the gold-medal final against England with 6:34 left in the second quarter tonight (14 April).

Cambage was called for an unsportsmanlike foul when she and England centre Azania Stewart got tangled up under the visitors’ basket with 7:20 to go in the half.

Then, visibly upset with a lack of fouls called against physical England defenders, Cambage received a technical foul, while waiting to take free throws with Australia leading 30-17.

Cambage walked to the locker room with her towel on her shoulders, arms raised, waving to a cheering home crowd at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
