Xu Han, an unstoppable force throughout the tournament, received the TISSOT MVP award for her exceptional performance, dominating in scoring, rebounding, and blocked shots. Li Meng, her teammate, was also recognized for her leadership, earning a spot on the TISSOT All-Star Five team. The event not only celebrated China's success but also determined the Asia entrants for the upcoming FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments, with China, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand all securing their spots on the Road to Paris 2024.
