Combined Koreas basketball team to play for Asian Games gold

Asian Games

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The combined Koreas women’s basketball team reached the Asian Games final, giving one of the sentimental favorites a chance at a historic gold medal.

A favorite in another sport won’t get the chance at gold, though, after defending field hockey champion India was upset later Thursday in a shootout against Malaysia.

The setback for India was cushioned slightly by more gold medals in track and field, where the Indian team finished behind only China and Bahrain in one of the surprising stories of the games.
