International Basketball Federation (FIBA) is an association that control basketball sports worldwide. One of the events that have been created by FIBA since 1953 was the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup and the World Cup of 2018 was chosen as the sample. The main objective of this study was to identify and compare the game plan used by both winning and losing teams in FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup 2018. This study conducted to analyse the tactical evaluation in attacking and defending

There were 18 performance indicators involved (successful free throw, unsuccessful free throw, successful passing, unsuccessful passing, successful block, unsuccessful block, defensive rebound, offensive rebound, foul, rebound, assist, crossover, steal, inside pass, turnover, shooting 3-points and shooting 2-points). All videos (N=40) have been observed used Longomatch software to quantify the data. The reliability and validity testing outcome (R=>0.8 and the total error (%) = <10%) render the instrument reliable and the data valid. Independent T-test used to test the hypothesis and the outcome showed that seven indicators had significant differences between winning and losing. The significant indicators were successful free throw, t (76.53) = 3.58, p = 0.001, defensive rebound, t (78) = 5.78, p = 0.001, foul, t (78) = -2.63, p = 0.01, rebound, t (78) = 4.63, p = 0.001, assist, t (78) = 5.51, p = 0.001, fast break, t (78) = 3.13, p = 0.002, and finally shooting 2-points, t (78) = 5.06, p = 0.001. Other performance indicators noted to have no significant difference between both groups (p > 0.05). This study's findings provide evidence on selected performance indicators that verify an effective strategy to gain points in match games.
