Ruperez qualifies China in World Cup final after 28 years

purpose of Caesar RuperezAssistant before the selection of China, was to cross the quarter-final barrier at the Women’s Basketball World Cup in Australia. Not only has he succeeded, but he has exceeded all expectations.

After 28 years, he has qualified to play China a world final, He will do this against America at eight o’clock this morning. “I am very satisfied, very proud. This is my first summer, my first camp with China and reaching the semi-finals after 28 years makes me very happy. These girls have already entered Chinese history. It was exciting to win against hosts Australia in front of 12,000 people and in such an intense match. I am glad that I signed with China”, Navresi admitted.

The semifinals went awry at the start, “We have played without our best scorer, who was scoring 20 points. I had a fever and although the game was very similar, I felt like we were fighting a lot of battles against a team that was far above him physically. They took many offensive rebounds from us, but we felt like we were hurting them, they were uncomfortable on the court and we found a way to score”, she says.

the nerves didn’t stop, “I have experienced that it is trying to help the head coach as much as possible, make adjustments and reassure the players so that they can perform better. I thought Kaya wouldn’t give us, he didn’t score us in the strikes, but since he took an aggressive rebound, he got us. Our base has made two plays of talent, character, personality and stole a ball which allowed us to tie the game. With the adjustments we made in the morning, we have put up a good team defense. Our point guard was smart on the rebound and managed to pick up fouls with two free throws and score them. It looked like we were going to lose it, but the five players on the court knew how to play a tough match despite being inexperienced in these conditions. Ruperez shared the pavilion with someone very special. “I have been with Pau Gasol and I have had the opportunity to speak with him, he has made me proud to represent Spain in this tournament. I have to highlight the atmosphere, it is the most wonderful experience I have ever had, It reminded me of Spain-Serbia, but more Chinese are supporting us.

USA, a much better team

This Saturday they will face one of the favourites, the United States. “I see them as far superior to all the teams. They have a high physical level, aggression and intensity in their defense, they make you play what you want. They kick you out of the game, but we don’t have to play our basketballs.” We have to try to play and strike a balance between respecting them and fearing them. We have to defend well, control our offensive reflexes and convert quickly”, he concluded.
