2017 SEABA Championship

Dasom drops 40 as Thailand whips Myanmar by 67

With Wutipong Dasom starring, Thailand did not let the ghosts of yesterday’s defeat to Indonesia haunt them Monday afternoon as they vented their frustrations to Myanmar, 102-35, in the 2017 SEABA Championship for Men at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

The Thais, who played without leader Chitchai Ananti, improved their card to 3-1, while Myanmar dropped to their third straight loss for a 0-3 card.

Dasom, who is of Irish descent, led Thailand with a monstrous 40 points — 13 in the first half — on a 76-percent shooting clip alongside 11 rebounds. His scoring output also serves as a tournament-high so far.

Dasom’s road to 40, which was highlighted by two dunks, came in the final stretch of the payoff period when everything was already decided. The lanky forward scored 10 of his team’s last 15 points, with his last bucket settling the game’s final result.

Dasom also received help from Nakorn Jaisanuk with 15 points on 21 shots and Naratip Boonserm with 13 markers. Anuruk Lodliang supplied 10, while Sorot Sunthonsiri, despite scoring just five markers, dished out 10 assists.

The Burmese were led once again by Wana Aung, who had 21 markers in yesterday’s loss to Vietnam, with 10 markers. Sei Thu Tun Tun was his only support with eight markers

Thailand almost doubled Myanmar’s rebounding output, 62-36. They also forced their smaller counterparts to 32 turnovers, in which they turned into 44 points.

Thailand will next face Gilas Pilipinas tomorrow, Tuesday, May 16, at 7:00 PM, while Myanmar will raise the curtains of tomorrow’s game date as they look to stun Singapore for their first win in tournament at 3:00 PM.
