Tahiti was well represented in the Oceania All-Stars women squad which played in the AYOF tournament with Maea Lextreyt (185-F-85) and Naiki Iorss (190-C-86). Pierre Villant, former president of the Tahiti federation, sit on the bench as assistant-coach. Unfortunatly there wasn't any player from Tahiti in the men's squad as Noel Pico had to withdrew from the squad due to personal reasons.


Pierre Villant could be happy of the girls who managed to snap the bronze medal with two historic victories against New Zealand. They lost against China and Australia but these teams were playing far above the South Pacific girls and the losses were so logical. Maea Lextreyt played a big role in more than 35 minutes per game a made her best game in the Bronze medal game vs New Zealand. Naiki Iorss played all the four games as center but she didn't get much of the ball on the offensive end.
The girls started the AYOF against the best team: Australia. Despite the 41-93 loss, the girls made a good game. Lextreyt played 35 minutes for 7pts 3/8FG while Iorss came out of the bench to score 6pts 3/4FG 4rbs in 20 minutes. The next game was an historic 44-42 victory over New Zealand, Lextreyt struggled with her shot (3pts 1/8FG) against stronger opponents but she was good on the defensive end with 5rbs 3bs and 2st, Naiki had a similar game with 2pts 1/6FG 6rbs and 2bs. Then came the game vs China (63-81), this was the first ever game against a non-Oceania country for the girls. Maea played the entire game for 5pts 1/8FG 7rbs 4ast and 1bs while Naiki also started the game in the starting five but she made her worst game of the tournament (2pts 1/3FG 3rbs 30min). In the Bronze medal game, the All-Stars defeated New Zealand again 71-55 on the wings of Valeria Nainima and Maea who made her best game when it counted the most with 17pts 4/7FG (4/6 from 3pts) 3rbs and 2bs in 35 minutes, Naiki added 4rbs and 1bs in 19min but remainded scoreless (0/1FG).
