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:
Jason Smith (194-G-74)
A lot of players deserved this awards but Jason Smith led Australia in scoring, including a 16-point effort in the Gold medal. So we gave the award to the best player of the best team.

ALL-TOURNAMENT FIRST-TEAM:
Jason Smith (194-G-74) AUS 15.8pts 2.4rbs 1.0ast
Sam Mackinnon (197-F/G-76) AUS 12.6pts 7.6rbs 3.2ast
Pero Cameron (199-F/C-74) NZ 14.4pts 7.6rbs 1.8ast
Andrew Sullivan (203-F-80) ENG 18.3pts 5.0rbs 3.3ast
Muoneke Gabe (200-F-78) NIG 18.8pts 5.6rbs 0.4ast
Jason Smith carried his team in the money time of the Gold medal game, Sam Mackinnon was the best all-around player of the tournament in a limitted playing time, Pero Cameron was back to his 2002-World Championships form and almost lift New Zealand to the Gold, Andrew Sullivan was the leader of a great England squad and was the best inside player of the tournament, Muoneke Gabe was most consistent part of the Nigeria's Big-Three.

ALL-TOURNAMENT SECOND-TEAM:
Brad Newley (199-G-85) AUS 13.0pts 2.6rbs 2.4ast
Aaron Olson (195-G-78) NZ 14.4pts 2.6rbs 2.8ast
Ejike Ugboaja (204-F/C-85) NIG 15.4pts 9.8rbs 0.4ast
Dean Browne (206-F/C-80) BAR 13.4pts 8.6rbs 0.2ast
Calvin Jnr Bruton (188-G-75) AUS 8.0pts 2.2rbs 6.0ast
Brad Newley did pretty well in his first international tournament despite playing injuried in the last two games, Aaron Olson was a great outside force for the Tall-Blacks, Ejike Ugboaja was great during four games but he was disapointing in the Bronze medal game, Dean Browne really was a cornerstone for Barbados, Calvin Jnr Bruton run a very deep australian team and was the tournament's leader in assists.

ALL-TOURNAMENT THIRD-TEAM:
Paul Henare (182-G-79) NZ 8.4pts 4.2rbs 6.0ast
Mark Worthington (201-F-83.) AUS 10.8pts 1.8rbs 1.6ast
Germayne Forbes (186-G-80) ENG 11.6pts 4.2rbs 1.4ast
Abdulrahman Mohammed (190-G-77) NIG 14.6pts 2.6rbs 3.4ast
