Who were the Day 2 Top Performers in Bangkok?

BANGKOK (Thailand) - Two Thai players stood out as one of the Top Performers from Day 2 of the FIBA Women's Asia Cup 2023 Division B as their team collected their first win of the competition.


Thunchanok Lumdappang and Rattiyakorn Udomsuk were the two main forces that led Thailand to their 72-51 win over Kazakhstan, their first in the competition since 2015.

Lumdappang recorded one of the most all-around performances so far in the competition with 17 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, and 4 blocks for 26 EFF. The former youth national team star is coming into her own in her senior national team debut, looking to guide her team back to Division A.

Udomsuk is also a former star coming up from the youth ranks and she put that on display with a 22-point outing to lead Thailand in the win. She was the firepower for Thailand in the final quarter, converting 53 percent of her shots as Thailand continued to build up their lead.

The other three top performers- Aisha Sheppard, Edna Eissaianjangi, and Kim Pierre-Louis - helped their teams maintain their perfect records so far in Bangkok.

Sheppard continues to excel in her national team debut. In the big 82-41 win over Sri Lanka, Sheppard posted 19 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 5 steals. She also finished with 27 EFF, the highest recorded in the gameday.

Iran's veteran Edna Eissaianjangi was instrumental in the team overpowering Mongolia, 70-33, which was their second straight win. Eissaianjangi was all over the place for Iran, controlling the boards with 9 rebounds while also being a threat from outside of the three-point line, knocking down 3 three-pointers.

Another day, another big performance from Indonesia's Kim Pierre-Louis in an important win over Malaysia, 60-55. After missing out on a 20-10 double-double in day 1, Pierre-Louis finally gets 22 points and 12 rebounds in this game.

Who do you think was the best player from Day 2 in Bangkok?
