Tahiti made a good FIBA Oceania Youth Tournament in Auckland and got the 6th place. Naiki Iorss (193-C-86) came in late to improve the squad to help Alizee Lefranc (F), the most gifted tahitian player. Iorss, Lefranc will certainly be a part of the Tahiti National Team in the 2007 South-Pacific Games in Samoa but few of their teamates would be able to join them. Depth was an issue for the team but the biggest problem was an horrible shooting game which prevent them to reach the semifinal stage.

Tahiti - Australia: 19-107
If the tahitians were happy to come to Auckland to visit New Zealand, this first game bringed the team down to earth. And badly. Australia wanted to make a great first game and Tahiti was the harmless victim of that. Hard to find a good news in this game for Tahiti.
Stats: Naiki Iorss 4pts 2/6FG 2rbs, Dayana Kahlert 4pts 1/4FG 4rbs, Alizee Lefranc 4pts 1/6FG 2rbs

Tahiti - Guam: 75-57
The girls managed to forget the blasting opening loss and claimed a 18-point win to avoid the pool's last spot. Alizee Lefranc top-scored with 24pts while Naiki Iorss recorded a double-double.
Stats: Alizee Lefranc 24pts 6/11FG 7rbs, Naiki Iorss 15pts 7/19FG 15rbs, Tahia Teriierooterai 10pts 2/13FG

Tahiti - Papua New Guinea: 65-76
Tahiti was surprised by a good PNG team and ended the pool phase at the third position. Naiki Iorss was the leader of the tahitian squad but the papuan offense was to much to handle for Tahiti.
Stats: Alizee Lefranc 15pts 7/15FG, Naiki Iorss 14pts 5/11FG 16rbs 2bs, Heiura Nena 12pts 3/4FG 7rbs

Pool Standing:
1- Australia 3-0
2- Papua New Guinea 2-1
3- Tahiti 1-2
4- Guam 0-3

Tahiti - New Caledonia: 46-71
As usual, this game between the french rivals was very intense. Tahiti resisted during the first half (29-34 for NC) but the caledonian won the third quarter 23-9 to expend the lead to an unrecoverable +19pts. Alizee Lefranc led her team with 11pts.
Stats: Alizee Lefrance 11pts 5/14FG 5rbs, Heiura Nena 10pts 3/10FG 7rbs, Naiki Iorss 10pts 5/12FG 14rbs

Classification game:
Tahiti - American Samoa: 92-64
Tahiti secured an easy 28-point win against the weakest team of the tournament thanks to a great defense (AMS shot for 30.0%FG and lost 36 balls). Terani Chimin netted her tournament high with 26pts, Alizee Lefranc also netted 26pts.
Stats: Terani Chimin 26pts 8/12FG 11rbs, Alizee Lefrance 26pts 8/12FG 11rbs, Naiki Iorss 15pts 4/10FG

5th place game:
Tahiti - Papua New Guinea: 68-87
The tahitian were not as motivated as the papuans for this game and PNG took an early lead, 22-16 at the end of the first quarter. Alizee Lefranc closed her tournament with another team-leading 19pts.
Stats: Alizee Lefrance 19pts 6/13FG 9rbs, Terani Chimin 17pts 5/10FG 9rbs, Tahia Teriierooterai 14pts 5/14FG

Final Standings:
1- Australia
2- New Zealand
3- New Caledonia
4- Fiji
5- Papua New Guinea
6- Tahiti
7- Guam
8- American Samoa

Players recap:
Alizee Lefranc (F)
The newcomer wing player is the most talented youngster of the squad. She was one of the best player in the tournament, a great slasher, she just need to improve her three-point shot. She was voted in the 2006 Oceania All-Star team.
Naiki Iorss (193-C-86)
The 2004 Oceania All-Star came back to help her team. Out of shape, she was one the best center of the tournament though. A great body, a lot of potential but she will not improve if she remains in Tahiti.
Heiura Nena (G)
A good floor general, she run her squad pretty well and tried to bring a little scoring from the backcourt. Good defender on the perimeter.
