共運會‧半決賽起在黃金海岸 國家女籃沖沖

(吉隆坡29日綜合電)去吧!沖向黃金海岸! 東運會冠軍馬來西亞國家女子籃球隊明日將啟程前往澳洲,參加將在4月4至15日期間舉行的2018年黃金海岸共運會,主教練翁薪云希望她的愛將們用正確的心態,爭取挺進在黃金海岸進行的半決賽。 本屆共運會籃球賽的初賽和複賽圈,將在黃金海岸以北的湯斯維爾(相距約1500公里)和凱恩斯(相距約2000公里)進行,只有到了4強才移師黃金海岸會展中心進行。因此只有晉身4強,才能真正的感受黃金海岸共運會。 感覺不一樣 “那種感覺真的不一樣,如果是在黃金海岸的話,我們可以在選手村用餐和休息,那是很好的體驗。”翁薪云說道。“我以前也住過選手村,那是非常棒的體驗。我們只有殺進半決賽才能前往黃金海岸,所以目標放在4強才有意義。” 這也大馬女籃史上第2次參加共運會,上一次參賽是2006年的墨爾本賽會,當時薪云是作為球員參賽,最終獲得第7名。而這次大馬與紐西蘭、牙買加及印度同處B組,小組出線難度不小。 “印度和牙買加是我們主要的競爭對手,紐西蘭畢竟比我們高了兩個檔次。”薪云在分析小組對手時指出。“我看過牙買加的比賽錄像,她們很壯碩,但是速度較慢,我們想取胜必須依靠快和準。印度是老對手,也不好對付。” 前路有難度 根據賽制,擁有東道主澳洲、加拿大、英格蘭及莫桑比克等強隊的A組,前二名直接晉身半決賽,而B組前二必須在複賽中挑戰A組的第3和第4名,爭奪另外兩個半決賽資格。 為了備戰本屆共運會,大馬女籃此前曾遠赴日本進行為期10天的特訓,期間打了13場熱身賽,取得5胜8負的成績。不過,大馬女籃此次的備戰工作沒有比東運會來得充分,加上競爭水平更高,大馬想殺進4強的難度極大。 調整金牌陣容 2小將初體驗 相比去年東運會奪冠的陣容,主教練翁薪云做出了兩個調整,“小鬼”黃美勤因為膝蓋受重傷而落選,中鋒黃思盈則因為表現未達標而遭割愛,2名小將黃玉鳳(19歲)和邱凱莉(20歲)獲得首次出征成年隊國際大賽的机會。 事實上,薪云已經開始把目光瞄準明年的東運會。“我們要逐漸在后備隊那里找到接班人,同時也要為明年的東運會做準備,給一些年輕球員机會,這也是我作出調整的原因。如果后備隊的球員可以趕快上位,那是最好的現象。” 薪云也是2017年全國最佳女教練,她希望球員們在比賽中展示正確的心態。“心態很重要,就算你體能很棒,但是心態不好,那也等于零。雖然她們在東運會展示了良好的心態,但是我們不能松懈,必須繼續下苦功。” 值得一提,這支大馬女籃的平均身高只有172.4公分,最高的球員是卡萊瑪蒂(184公分),估計是8支參加女籃賽的球隊當中最矮的一隊,因此球隊真的只能用速度力拼對手,同時盡量把握住每一次出手的机會。 大馬女籃共運會陣容 領隊 :洪俊文 教練 :翁薪雲 助教 :朱雪雲 體適能教練:簡永翰 號碼/球員/位置 1.彭慧萍-前鋒/后衛 5.張盈盈-后衛 6.蘇葦穎-控衛/后衛 7.依查蒂(隊長)-后衛 8.黃寶宜-前鋒 10.戴嘉倩-前鋒 11.劉佩琪-前鋒 12.卡萊瑪蒂-中鋒 20.黃玉鳳-前鋒 22.邱凱莉-中鋒 35.葉佛儀-前鋒 72.陳巧婷-大前鋒/前鋒 共運會女籃分組形勢 A組:澳洲、加拿大、英格蘭、莫桑比克 B組:紐西蘭、牙買加、印度、馬來西亞 Source: 中国报China Press | Click Here
