The Papua New Guinea national team missed the Bronze medal by 10 points in the 2007 Arafura Games basketball tournament held in Darwin, Australia. The papuans were using this tournament as a preparation for the upcoming South Pacific Games. Marca Muri, the youngster Nape Waka and Peggy Muri were the three best players of the team during this event. The PNG team featured 4 players of the youth team who played in the 2006 FIBA Oceania Youth Tournament: Nape Waka (F), Mary Elavo (G/F), Julie-Ann Diro (G-86) and Emma Doroa (G/F). The PNG Madang Province also sent a team to Australia but the team was unable to win a single game there, Nester Sape made a good tournament though and might have earn consideration from the national team coaches.
