ASTANA (2016 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships) - Czech sharpshooter Sara Krumpholcova, US star Megan Walker and MVP Astou Gaye (France) feature in the 2016 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships women's Team of the Tournament.

Krumpholcova led Czech Republic all the way to the semi-finals and had the best individual performance of the event (men and women combined) in her opener with 17 points, including 7 shots from behind the arc.

Megan Walker could get buckets from anywhere on the court and proved it in the semi-finals against Czech Republic where she tallied 14 points. She also proved she could play some defense.

Astou Gaye was a force in the middle but also showed a very soft touch from long range. She led all women in scoring and it wasn't close (57pts compared to Krumpholcova's and Walker's total of 44).
