All Star Five Line-Up

HONIARA (Solomon Islands) - The 2023 Pacific Games Women's All Star Five have been revealed with players from Cook Islands, Fiji, Guam, Samoa and Tahiti all featuring.


Leading points score for the competition with an average of 19,2 per game, Castro played an instrumental part in Guam's fifth place finish.  Driving  hard at the rim, and always providing an option for her team, Castro's ability to find space was impressive.


Tuaiti wrapped up her Pacific Games campaign with the most assists across the competition, with an average of 3.5.  She was the leading points scorer for Cook Islands as they stormed into their first ever Pacific Games medal match.  She hit a game high 21 points, and 10 rebounds against Papua New Guinea in the group phase, and was integral part of the Cook Islands structure.


Lefranc was the the most efficient performer, and leading points scorer for Tahiti with an average of 12.  Her ability to win the ball, and tenacity to dive on the loose ball, contributed to the success for the team's gold medal performance.


The competition's top performer,  and second highest points scorer, averaging 17.7 points per game, Kenny was every bit the experienced veteran that we have come to expect.  She was consistent at both ends of the court, leading her team with scoring and rebounds.


The 17-year-old was the leading points scorer for Samoa with an average of 12.8, and provided her team with leadership, and guidance beyond her years.  In her first Pacific Games, the Australian-based small forward will no doubt provide Samoa with the plenty of inspiration over the coming years of competition.
