28 May 2017

CYBERJAYA (FIBA 3x3 U18 Asia Cup 2017) - Indonesia rising star Lea Kahol was named MVP and joined on the Team of the Tournament by Suet Ying Foo (Malaysia) and ZiHui Yuan (China) at the FIBA 3x3 U18 Asia Cup 2017, which was staged in Cyberjaya, Malaysia on May 26-28 2017.

Western New Guinea native Lea Kahol made quite an impression over the week. The 17-year-old started the competition as a dominating rebounder, shot-blocker and defensive juggernaut. But as the final day started, she proved to be a gifted offensive player as well, capable of hitting the long ball with consistency.

Kahol finished 4th overall in scoring and outscored the entire Malaysian team on her own in the final (8 points).

The 5ft 6in (1.69m) ZiHui Yuan was second overall in scoring and a the key behind China's bronze-medal run while the willowy Suet Ying Foo finished third overall and nearly singlehandedly brought Malaysia to the final.
