Taiwan finishes eleventh in Chile

2011 Chile U19 Woman

Led by Lin Yu-ting's 15, Taiwan placed five scorers in double-digit and defeated host Chile for the second time in the tournament to finish 11th  place in the 2011 FIBA World U19 Championship for Women.

While the 11th place is not something to brag about, it is already Taiwan's best finish in the tourney. Taiwan was winless in its first appearance in 1993. This year it had a 3-5 record in Chile.
