Players recap:
Like all the micronesian states in this tournament, Chuuk had a lot of troubles to get the ball in the basket. The team needs to improve its ball-handling and needs to know how to attack a pressure defense. Lilliina Sewell was the team's leader, her low shooting percentage is due to multiple double-teams from the opponents. She is for the sure part of the future of the Federated State of Micronesia NT. Kimberly Graham also made a good tournament but she needs to be more a leader. It's not easy to find another valuable contributor on the roster.

Lilliina Sewell 10.7pts 22.0%FG 14.0rbs 1.3ast 6gp 33min
