More Meesseman magic as Belgian star claims Top Performer award
MUNICH (Germany) - The second gameday of the FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2021 Qualifiers witnessed a stunning individual display from Belgian Cats' leader Emma Meesseman.
The forward was unstoppable as Belgium rolled over Finland 85-58, with Meesseman finishing the contest with a dazzling efficiency valuation of 44. That came off the back of 32 points from 75 percent floor shooting, plus 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals.
The UMMC Ekaterinburg and Washington Mystics favorite will now be red-hot favorite to also lay claim to Fans' MVP via the voting below.
Her competition for the accolade comes from the rest of our leading performers, including Anastasiya Verameyenka who led Belarus to a brilliant 90-59 success in Manchester against Great Britain. She was hugely influential with 17 points after shooting 64 percent from the floor, as well as harvesting 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks.
Ukraine also got their first win as Alina Iagupova paced a 72-60 victory against Portugal with a trademark all-action contribution of 29 points, 7 rebounds,5 assists, and 4 steals.
Latvia are also off the mark thanks mainly to Elina Dikaioulaku who powered her team past North Macedonia. She dropped 22 points and accumulated 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals in a 98-39 triumph.
Finally, it's been a super opening window for Bosnia and Herzegovina as they moved to 2-0 behind a stellar showing from Marica Gajic. The forward inspired her team to an 80-61 success against Switzerland with an 18-point and 18-rebound double-double.
