Who were the Day 1 Top Performers in Bangkok?

BANGKOK (Thailand) - Marya Al Hinn stood out as one of the Top Performers from Day 1 of the FIBA Women's Asia Cup 2023 Division B in Bangkok, Thailand after a solid outing that earned Jordan a hard-earned win on opening day.


Al Hinn is the top returning scorer from Jordan's 2021 squad that went to the Final and immediately put up 26 points in the first game of the 2023 edition. She did so efficiently on 9-14 shooting from the field while also grabbing 11 rebounds to tie for the highest EFF of the day at 25.

Aside from Al Hinn, Jordan also got a productive debut game from Aisha Sheppard in their 74-71 win. Sheppard matched Al Hinn's point total on 5 three-pointers, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds.

Kim Pierre-Louis started the day by picking up right where she left off in Amman at Women's Asia Cup 2021 Division B, shouldering an impressive 69-52 win by Indonesia. The center was just one point and one rebound short of a 20-10 double-double with 19 points and 9 rebounds.

Another player that was able to secure a double-double was Anna Bezgodova. Kazakhstan's pivot scored 14 points to go with 12 rebounds while also getting 3 assists to record 24 EFF in a big 66-34 win.

Fook Yee Yap was tied for the highest EFF in the day (25) riding a hot-handed scoring effort of 28 points and also grabbed 9 rebonds, but it was not enough to get the win for Malaysia in their 65-59 loss to Iran.

Who do you think was the best player from Day 1 in Bangkok?
