Former WNBA Draft Pick Armelie Lumanu showed her world class form in leading the Lady Generals to their 3rd consecutive WUBA Championship, and winning the 2016 WUBA Finals MVP Award with a 25 point, 8 rebound, and 8 assists performance. Lumanu had a strong impact at both ends of the floor, playing point and leading the offense, and leading the charge on defense.

She closed the game and guaranteed the victory with nine 4th quarter points in the final 2 minutes as the Matrix strategy of intentionally fouling her put her at the line repeatedly. The Generals are champions because she made the big shots.
