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.
