   Stats Leaders, Awards and Final Standings
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 her teamate, she could have done much more if her team was in danger, her teamate Jenny Whittle provided a great defensive presence next to Lauren Jackson, Chimoa Udeaja is one of the three players in the tournament to averaged a double-double, Deolinda Gimo was Mozambique's best players. For the last spot, we had to choose between indians Geethu Ann Jose and Anitha Pauldurai who both deserved the nod.

   Australia takes the Gold!
As expected, Australia claimed the Gold medal in the first-ever women basketball tournament in the Commonwealth Games. In the championship games, Lauren Jackson (196-F/C-81) and her teamates defeated New Zealand 77-39. This game closed an interesting tournament where the Opals were playing on another level. We will post a complete recap of this tournament and the stats leaders in the next days.

Gold medal game:
Australia - New Zealand: 77-39
The australians players said before this game that it will be the most difficult one for them, so they decided to start it at 110% to crush the slight Kiwi hopes as soon as possible. In the first quarter, Lauren Jackson (196-F/C-81) and Belinda Snell (180-F-81) combined for 11pts 7rbs and 5st to give Australia a 23-11 lead. In the second quarter, Jackson didn't need any help and scored 9 of her team's 15 points and the Opals reached half-time on a 38-19 lead. Jackson has played 17 minutes in this first half, just to show how hard she wanted this game. NZ captain Donna Loffhagen (185-F-78), who was scoreless in the first half, scored 8pts in the second one but that wasn't enough and the lead kept growing until the final buzzer. Australia came out of the game with a 77-39 victory.
Lauren Jackson was the game's leading scorer with 23pts 6/14FG 11rbs 2ast 3st and 1bs, Belinda Snell (180-F-81) added 8pts 4/8FG 10rbs and Laura Summerton (189-C-83) netted 7pts 3/6FG. Donna Loffhagen (185-F-78) recorded 8pts 2/8FG 13rbs, Noni Wharemate (171-G-82) scored 6pts 1/4FG 6rbs and Kate McKeenen-Ruscoe (173-G-79) added 7pts 3/9FG.
"This is so awesome. To play in front of this crowd is something I will never forget," exclaimed Jackson. "I never thought I would get the chance to play for my country again in Australia."
"They are a very good team, obviously," stated NZ coach Mike McHugh. "You could see how much they wanted the gold medal. We went through 10 minutes without getting a score ... we just couldn't score ..."

   England get the Bronze!

Bronze medal game:
England - Nigeria: 78-75
The first quarter was really close (17-16 for Nigeria), nigerian Ezinne James (190-F-85) netted 8pts in the first 10 minutes but Andrea Congreaves (193-C-70) and Claire Maytham (172-G-76) responded with 6pts each.

In the third quarter, Shelly Boston (188-C/F-75) scored 10pts to extend the lead to 9 points (55-46). The final period was a fierce battle, Funmi Ojelabi (170-G-85) and Mobolaji Akiode (190-F-82) netted 9pts each for Nigeria but Congreaves proved that she really is a world-class player with 8pts in this 4th quarter. England finally came out with a 78-75 victory, both teams recorded similar stats but Nigeria hit only 23/36 free-throw which is of obviously a major problem is such a close game. Andrea Congreaves was the best player on the court with 21pts 6/10FG 7rbs and 3ast in 35 minutes, Shelly Boston scored all of her 14pts in the second half and Rosalee Mason (180-F/G-79) added 12pts 2/12FG and 5rbs.

England’s Katie Crowley commented, ‘This is a fantastic result for the team and hopefully for women’s basketball in England.’
"I'm absolutely ecstatic and delighted," said a jubilant Congreaves. "We knew Nigeria would be tough but our girls were fabulous - it was a bit of a nail-biter. We are absolutely stoked to get the medal."

   Semifinals - Australia will face New Zealand for the Gold - Mar. 21, 2006 - by Eurobasket


Angela Marino


As expected, Australia powered its way to the Championship Game. In the semifinals, the Opals blasted Nigeria with another great performance from Lauren Jackson (196-F/C-81). New Zealand earn the right to play the aussies thanks to a 74-67 victory over England in the other semifinal game. Will they be able to stop Australia?

Australia - Nigeria: 105-49
No pleasant surprise for Nigeria, Australia dominated this game from the first to the last second. The Opals were already leading 33-5 after 10 minutes and they displayed an impressive defensive game. Lauren Jackson (196-F/C-81) played only 22 minutes but she managed to score 37pts 15/27FG 8rbs and 2bs! Laura Summerton netted 17pts 7/9FG in 17 minutes and Katrina Hibbert scored 11pts. Mobolaji Akiode (190-F-82) and Funmi Ojelabi both netted 10pts while Rashidat Saddiq posted 9pts and 10rbs. Australian coach Jan Stirling is confident of having a full list to choose from for the gold medal match. Australia’s point guard Tully Bevilaqua did not play due to an ankle injury, but should start in the next game.
“She could've played this match, and wanted to play, but we need her to be as close to 100 per cent as she can be for the gold medal game,” said Stirling.

Nigeria Coach Scott Nnaji conceded that his side was young and lacked height, but was looking ahead to the next game - the bronze medal play-off.
"We have had no hard competition before the Games and will benefit for tomorrow,'' he said.

New Zealand - England: 74-67
In a nail-bitting contest, England tried everything but New Zealand finally came out of this game as a winner and will face Australia in a 100% Oceania championship game.

Youngster Angela Marino (166-G-86) showcased her skills with 16pts, Donna Loffhagen posted 14pts 6rbs and 3ast while Charmian Purcell and Kate McKeenen-Ruscoe both scored 10pts. Andrea Congreaves (193-C-70) tried her best for England with 16pts 8/13FG and 12rbs, Rosalee Mason scored 15pts and Gillian D'Hondt scored 12pts.
