Kezaiah-Brittany Lewis led the way with 22 points while Terai Sadler grabbed 13 rebounds including six offensive rebounds.

“We didn’t know what to expect coming in here, so to come away with the Gold is awesome,” said Sadler, “We're proud to represent the Cook Islands and make everyone back home proud.”

The ladies in green dominated the glass with a massive 71-33 rebounding advantage that led to 23 more attempts.
