On October 16, Beijing time, the sixth round of the WCBA regular season kicked off. The Hebei Women's Basketball Team defeated Hubei and Wuhan Women's Basketball Team 76-70 and won the first victory of the season. The underdogs of the two leagues fought to the last minute, and the third quarter finished Hebei. The score difference was opened to 20 points. Unexpectedly, in the final quarter, Hebei collapsed and was almost reversed by Wuhan. In the final quarter, Wuhan scored a 25-11 offensive and defensive wave with a net victory of 14 points. Fortunately, Hebei has Guo Zixuan and Zhang Yaqi in the end. Ended a four-game losing streak.
Guo Zixuan was praised again in this game, she was the player with the highest scoring in the game. Guo Zixuan played 38 minutes, 10 of 27, 0 of 5 three-pointers, 3 of 6 free throws, 25 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals and 1 block. The hit rate was 37%. The only downside was that the hit rate was too low and the three-pointer was shot. 0 in 5 lowered the overall shooting rate, otherwise the two-point shooting rate is still more than 45%. Guo Zixuan should have played at the fourth position in the league. She feels that she is more like a shooting guard at 1.88 meters in Hebei. She has to constantly attack the opponent's inside line.
Guo Zixuan's last three games are only one-strong! In the first game against Sichuan, she fought against Shao Ting and Gao Song alone; in the first game against Zhejiang, she hit 30+ against Zhejiang's five in double figures. In the last three games, Guo Zixuan scored 95 points in total. This scoring ability is similar to her last season. It's a world of difference!
Against Zhejiang: 12 of 36, 1 of 11 three points, 31 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks, 33.3% shooting and 9.1% three-point shooting
Against Sichuan: 12 of 25, 2 of 8 three-pointers, 39 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists, 48% shooting and 25% three-point shooting. Counting Guo Zixuan’s 95 points in the three games in this game, he averaged 31.7 points per game. Although the efficiency value is not good, this scoring ability is unquestionable. As a young rebuilding team, the Hebei Women’s Basketball team has really few offensive points. Guo Zixuan basically has to take on nearly half of the team's offensive tactics. At the age of 23, she is already the pillar of Hebei.
Guo Zixuan signed to return to her hometown team Hebei Women's Basketball Team this summer. She also played for Shanxi last season, averaging only 5.9 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist per game. After returning to her hometown team, her tactical status has greatly increased. Improved to 28 points, 4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2 steals and 1.2 blocks. Her performance did not live up to the promotion of Chinese women’s basketball coach Xu Limin. She is a positive player for the 2019 Women’s Basketball Asian Cup. There is a high probability that she will be in the Tokyo Olympics next year. A place.
In the Asian Cup of Women’s Basketball, the Chinese women’s basketball team finally won the runner-up. In the final, they lost the Japanese women’s basketball team 71-74. Guo Zixuan also got a chance to make a debut in that game. Unfortunately, there was no play but three three-pointers failed. The Chinese women’s basketball team made 6 of 26 three-pointers in the game. Guo Zixuan took many three-pointers this season but the effect was not good. The current average three-point shooting rate is only 29.6%. She wants to become Xu Limin again to guide the Olympic Games. Improve the stability of the three-pointer and open up the space to have an absolute advantage in the international arena.
