Fagbenle scored a best of 28 points on 12 of 16 shooting in the critical 79-82 loss against Korea on Saturday. Despite facing numerous double teams in the paint, she shot above 60% for the tournament.
The elite post-moves were once again on display from Fagbenle, who also found a way out of the defensive pressure inside by creating for her team-mates with five assists handed out in the two games over the weekend.
The 2017 WNBA champion also made the All-Tournament Team at Women’s EuroBasket 2019 last summer having helped propel GB to a historic fourth place finish.
Fagbenle made a mid-season switch to Perfumerias Avenida in Spain, joining up with GB team-mate Karlie Samuelson with the team performing well in EuroCup Women action.
We have a tiny favour to ask. In 2018 we set out to make Hoopsfix sustainable by building our relationship directly with our readers. Up until now, Hoopsfix has been creating editorials, videos and podcasts to provide sorely missing coverage of the British game and its distinct culture and community.
We have funded Hoopsfix with our freelance work creating basketball media, but sadly that means not only does it fall behind our client’s priorities, but some of those clients are the same organisations we need to report objectively on putting us in a conflicted position.
We want to devote more time to our mission of helping British basketball reach its potential, and produce even more content for the basketball community by making Hoopsfix a sustainable 100% independent business funded directly by our readers through Patreon.
If everyone who enjoys our content chose to support us, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $3 per month, you can support Hoopsfix – and it only takes a minute.
We are tremendously honoured and humbled to have a community of people who value what we do, and we look forward to being at the forefront of the British game as it continues to evolve.
