The New Zealand women's basketball team have started their Commonwealth Games campaign with a thumping 86-44 victory over Malaysia in Cairns.

The Kiwis were superior from beginning to end in their Pool B clash, with star player Micaela Cocks nabbing 15 points and Josephine Stockill picking up 13.

The New Zealanders won each of the four quarters.

They'll now look ahead to Saturday's clash with Jamaica.
