On September 25, Beijing time, the Asian Championship U16 third place match, the Chinese men's basketball team finally defeated the Philippines 87-59, and won the third place in the U16 competition! It is worth mentioning that regardless of whether this game is won or lost, the Chinese team has ensured the qualification for next year's U17 men's basketball World Cup. According to media sources, the third place is only the worst record in history, after China participated five times, won three championships, one runner-up and one third place.
Although the final result is average, I believe that everyone watched this game last night very enthusiastically and comfortably! Compared with this year's World Cup Chinese men's basketball team lost 21 points to the Philippines, this group of young men can be said to make fans feel a little relieved, young people dare to fight is always good, now the Chinese men's basketball team can only hope for young people.
In this event, the player who impressed the fans the most was undoubtedly the young player Zhang Boyuan! In this game against the Philippines, Zhang Boyuan can be said to lead the whole team alone, shooting 12 of 17, 7 of 9 from three-point range, and 34 points! In addition, 7 rebounds and 1 block scored. Positive and negative values up to +38! This hit rate is crazy.
Zhang Boyuan is 2.03 meters tall, 16 years old this year, from Jilin! Some fans commented that the young man looks like a superstar, with a body, comprehensive technique, projection, ball intelligence, and is a rare genius teenager! After Ding Yanyuhang, another small forward that can be expected, the forward line of the Chinese men's basketball team is promising. This breakthrough is really handsome.
According to statistics, in this year's U16 Asian Championship, Zhang Boyuan played a total of 6 games, shooting 53% from the field, and can average 20.5 points per game, ranking 2nd in the event! Second only to Qatar's Mohammed N'Daw in average 26 points per game. After the game, FIBA announced the best team of this tournament, and Zhang Boyuan was successfully selected!
At present, Zhang Boyuan has not joined any CBA league youth team, and it has been reported that Xinjiang is contacting the young man. This has been strongly opposed by many fans, and everyone hopes that this group of young people can go out and take a look, not limited to China, and don't enter the CBA so early.
In addition to Zhang Boyuan, there is another player who is also worth looking forward to, he is the inside lineman Sinan Qiao! Against the Philippines, Si Nan contributed 14 points, 11 boards, 4 assists and 5 blocks. In this year's U16 Asian Championship, the young man can average 10.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 3.7 blocks per game, of which the average number of blocks per game ranks first in the event! In fact, fans pay more attention to Sinan than Zhang Boyuan, the former is a player who has developed in the United States after all.
One thing to say, this time the U16 Asian Championship, this group of young players are really good, the basic skills are also solid, compared to the U19 guard and forward position seems to have more potential. The only drawback may be the coach, these tactics and playing styles are really out of touch with the world, blindly let the players eat inside is not a way at all, which is why we lost to New Zealand last time we missed the final.
With the end of the U16 men's basketball competition, this summer's Chinese basketball national echelon, five-a-side basketball field has ended all competitions! The results are as follows: U19 Men's Basketball World Cup 10th (Draw 3rd best record in history), U16 Men's Basketball Asian Championship 3rd (worst record in history), U19 Women's Basketball World Cup 13th (worst record in history), U16 Women's Basketball Asian Championship 6th (worst record in history).
It can only be said that the road to the rejuvenation of Chinese basketball is still a long way off! Some fans suggested that the Chinese Basketball Association should consider joint training with Europe, and U16 directly join the youth training camp of European clubs to receive systematic training.
