To be honest, there are a lot of young players on the Philippines national team that really made a name for themselves this calendar year. It was clear to see how much they impressed the basketball scene in Asia as multiple players proceeded to sign professional deals playing in foreign countries whether it was Japan or Australia.

Being a part of a talent pool as deep as China, standing out and making a lasting impression is not easy. But when you explode for 27 points on 6 three-pointers to go with 4 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals as Zhao Rui did against Japan during the first window the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Asian Qualifiers, the fans will be put on notice.

Takeaways: Winchester, the state's highest scoring team at 71.2 points per game, is back in 2A following a two-year stint in 3A. The Golden Falcons, however, have never played in this particular sectional, and they join an extremely competitive field. Eastbrook and Tipton each won a sectional title over the last two seasons and are undefeated against sectional opponents this year, so it'll likely be one of those three teams winning this tournament. Still, Tipton gets the favorable draw by facing the two lowest seeds. Blackford is no slouch either, so Tipton will likely either face a battle-tested group in the championship.

However, when you go through the calendar year with two separate 5-block games, that’s definitely worth highlighting. Alsuwailem swatted away 5 shots in the Asia Cup Qualifiers against Syria back in June and then repeated with another 5 blocks against India in the Asia Cup Qualifying Tournament for Third Ranked Teams. These two games stand as the most blocks in a game through the Asia Cup Qualifiers, also easily making Alsuwailem the leader in total blocks and blocks per game as well.
