The game was always going to be a monumental task for the inexperienced Thai team, who have been playing together for less than two months. Buoyed by an exuberant crowd though, who cheered their every basket, they continued to put up a fight throughout.
The game allowed Great Britain to give all their players court time, with GB’s two 4.5 players, Jade Atkin and Lucy Robinson, leading the scoring for them with 14 points apiece as GB coasted to a 62-11 win and their second victory of the tournament.
Following the game GB’s Freya Levy, said, “It was a good game, everyone on our team got on the scoresheet which is a huge thing for us because we are one big team. We are all-in. It was great to play the hosts and they had some great support behind them, and we are really happy with a good win.
“We have South Africa tomorrow so if we take that game, we finish top of our pool and onto the quarter-finals which is goal number one for us. It’s been a great tournament so far, great to see so many teams from so many different nations, and off-court we are all mingling and making friends with people from all around the world.”
