Yap was the weakest team in the 2006 Micronesian Tournament. The team was playing against smarter, taller and more experienced squads. Yap is far from being able to compete under its own flag and seems lost whithout the help of the other micronesian states.

Pool phase:
Yap - Chuuk: 30-39
Selma Single 12pts 5/20FG 3rbs
Valerie Acker 5pts 2/9FG 5rbs
Susan Gooliyan 4pts 1/10FG 6rbs

Yap - Pohnpei: 17-91
Genista Kadannged 4pts 2/8FG 4rbs
Laakan Manmaw 3pts 1/14FG 3rbs
Valerie Acker 2pts 0/6FG 8rbs

Yap - CNMI: 29-52
Selma Single 7pts 3/16FG 6rbs
Helen Mgag 6pts 0/10FG 7rbs
Jessica Kadannged 5pts 2/4FG 3rbs

Yap - Palau: 30-56
Jessica Kadannged 12pts 5/13FG 13rbs
Helen Mgag 8pts 3/8FG 5rbs
Chandra Ledgesog 3pts 1/7FG 10rbs

Players recap:
It's hard to find a good news in Yap's tournament, the team seems out of shape, the players were unable to pass the hald-court without loosing the ball, the team was outrebounded and unable to hit the shots and even the coaches seemed lost during this tournament. Jessica Kadannged and Selma Single were the two best players but there are tons of work to be done in Yap and the team is still lightyears away from being a contender in the region.

Jessica Kadannged 6.3pts 32.0%FG 8.3rbs 0.0ast 3gp 24min
Selma Single 5.8pts 18.2%FG 3.5rbs 0.3ast 4gp 28min
Helen Mgag 4.7pts 15.0%FG 4.7rbs 0.0ast 3gp 24min
