JPN-W vs CAN-W Dream11 FIBA WOMEN’S World CUp Projections, Stats & Analysis
Japan’s defense has been on song but their offense looks a bit off and the major reason for that is they lack their major playmaker Rui Machida and sharpshooter Saki Hayashi. They shot just 22% from the three-point line, dishing just 14 assists for just 16 turnovers, clearly implying the void created by the absence of their two-star players. They will need to make their three-pointers because the inside game is still solid with Maki Takada and Himawari Akaho.
On the other hand, Canada has been fantastic on the defensive end and has now shut down two teams in a row that are loaded with talent. Kayla Alexander’s rebounding and Natalie Achonwa’s inside game have paid dividends while the backcourt defense of Kia Nurse, Shay Colley, and Bridget Carleton has been amazing. Nirra Fields gives scoring touch off the bench while Laeticia Amihere at the Forward position also gives the team incredible depth.

FIBA WOmen’s World Cup Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Miyazaki has taken the reins as a playmaker in absence of Rui while also providing decent bit of scoring. I expect a 9-14 points and 5-7 assists range.
Alexander was huge on boards again in the last game and deals most of her damage inside. I expect a 10-14 points and 8-12 rebounds range here. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
Akaho is a great rebounder for her size while she can also provide much-needed scoring. I expect a 11-16 points and 6-9 rebounds range here.
Achonwa’s physical tools enable her to grab tough rebounds and she is able to play defense and finish inside. I expect a 6-12 points, 6-9 rebounds, and 1-2 steals range.
Maki was on fire in the last game, making five of her seven shots, but can she replicate here against a tough Canadian defense. I expect a 8-13 points range here.
Kia’s long absence due to injury has affected her offensive game for sure, can she get in a groove here. I expect her to be in 10-14 points and 3-5 rebounds range.
Nanako was impactul on both ends of the floor in the last game. I expect a 7-11 points range.
Fields has been incredible as a bench scorer and can rise up for big nights repeatedly. I expect a 12-17 points and 3-5 rebounds range here.
Stephanie is an athletic player who mostly gives defense at an elite clip. I expect her to be in 6-10 points and 3-5 rebounds range.
Bridget shot an atrocious 1/14 in the last game but her rebounding and defense have been effective. I expect her to be in 9-14 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-3 steals/blocks range.
Aika struggled in the last game and shot just 2/8, she will need to do much better. I expect 7-11 points range.
Colley can be an effective scorer as a starter. I expect her to be in 10-14 points range here.
Monica made two of her three shots in the last game.
Laeticia is a strong rebounder and defender off the bench. I expect a 4-8 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
