After 10 days of competition, Australia won the first-ever Commonwealth Games women basketball tournament in Melbourne over New Zealand, England claimed the Bronze medal. Check out who were the top-performers during this tournament. We will post a team-by-team recap in the next days.

AWARDS:
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER:
Lauren Jackson (196-F/C-81)
Who else? Lauren Jackson was by far the best player in Melbourne, she scored more than 30ppg in less than 25 minutes per game to lead Australia for the Gold.



We could named the entire australian squad in our All-Tournament teams but there were a lot of great players in the other teams too. We use the players stats, their efficiency and of course their team's ranking to name these teams.

ALL-TOURNAMENT FIRST-TEAM:
Lauren Jackson (196-F/C-81) AUS 31.0pts 7.0rbs 1.4ast
Andrea Congreaves (193-C-70) ENG 17.4pts 9.4rbs 1.0ast
Donna Loffhagen (185-F-78) NZ 14.4pts 10.4rbs 1.8ast
Funmi Ojelabi (170-G-85) NIG 14.8pbs 2.4rbs 0.8ast
Belinda Snell (180-F-81) AUS 10.0pts 5.2rbs 3.4ast
I don't need to add anything about Lauren Jackson, Andrea Congreaves almost carried England to the Bronze by herself, Donna Loffhagen was the heart and soul of a brilliant New Zealand squad, Funmi Ojelabi led Nigeria in scoring and Belinda Snell provided a great all-around game

ALL-TOURNAMENT SECOND-TEAM:
Angela Marino (166-G-86) NZ 14.8pts 3.2rbs 3.2ast
Rosalee Mason (180-F/G-79) ENG 11.6pts 5.8rbs 0.8ast
Hollie Grima (190-C-83) AUS 10.6pts 5.6rbs 0.8ast
Katrina Hibbert (180-G/F-77) AUS 10.0pts 2.8rbs 2.4ast
Erin Phillips (173-G-85) AUS 8.2pts 2.8rbs 5.0ast
Youngsters Angela Marino and Erin Phillips played really well in this tournament and are the future of their teams, Hollie Grima and Katrina Hibbert recorded some pretty good stats in a very deep australian team, Rosalee Mason was really a pleasant surprise for England and a good help for Congreaves

ALL-TOURNAMENT THIRD-TEAM:
Tully Bevilaqua (170-G-72) AUS 3.0pts 0.5rbs 3.3ast
Jenny Whittle (197-C-73) AUS 7.4pts 7.4rbs 2.0ast
Chioma Udeaja (192-F/C-84) NIG 10.5pts 10.2rbs 0.6ast
Geethu Ann Jose (185-C-85) IND 15.2pts 9.4rbs 0.2ast
Deolinda Gimo (186-C-87) MOZ 10.2pts 9.0rbs 0.4ast
Bevilaqua's stats won't jump at you but she did the right thing as starting PG for Australia: pressure defence and give the ball to ...
