The match is Puerto Rico vs USA. Puerto Rico defeated Bosnia and Herzegovina 82-58 in their opening match in the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022. With 31 points in the first quarter, the most ever by a team in a Women’s World Cup, they got off to an explosive start. With a total of 7, they also had the most three-pointers made by Puerto Rico.

Not just for Puerto Rico, but also for their top player Arella Guirantes, who finished the first game of the competition with 26 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists, it was unquestionably a historic game. Given the performance, the player received an EFF rating of 36, a feat only one other player in the last two World Cups has accomplished.

In addition, this was the first time since the Women’s World Cup began keeping track of assists and rebounds that a player had at least 25 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists in a single game. Erika Dobrovicova (24-10-10) achieved the last triple double at a World Cup in 1994 when the Slovak Republic faced Spain. The Puerto Rican team is competing in its second consecutive Women’s World Cup and is in Group A.
