BEIRUT (Lebanon) – 2022 has been quite a year for basketball in Asia. We’re taking the time to celebrate some of the best in Asia over the past year and letting you decide in a FAN VOTE which stands out the most.

We started off by celebrating some of the best young men’s basketball players where Kai Sotto was voted the Young Player of the Year (Men) by the fans. Then, the fans voted Kristan Yumul as the Young Player of the Year (Women). The Play of the Year was then voted to be Wang Siyu’s clutch free-throws against Australia in the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup Semi-Finals. Those free-throws were part of China’s historic win at the Women’s World Cup, which was then later voted as the Moment of the Year.

After taking a look at some of the most outstanding stars in women’s basketball over the past year in Asia from top-notch scorers to clutch performers to fan favorites, the fans voted for Li Meng as the Player of the Year (Women).

Even though she was unavailable due to illness in the Semi-Finals and Final of the Women’s Basketball World Cup, Li Meng stood out as one of China’s best players in the memorable run to the title game. Arguably her best performance was when she scored 23 points in the Quarter-Finals against France.
