Θριάμβευσε στην AfroLeague ο Λίνος Γαβριήλ (pics)

690

Η Ράντες συνεχίζει με τα… φρένα σπασμένα, κάνοντας επίδειξη δύναμης στα πρώτα παιχνίδια της νεοσύστατης AfroLeague, όπου μάζεψε πέντε ροζ φύλλα, σε ισάριθμες αναμετρήσεις της για την προκριματική φάση.

Η ομάδα του Λίνου Γαβριήλ συνδύασε ουσία και θέαμα, νικώντας σημαντικές δυνάμεις της Βόρειας Αφρικής (Αλ Αχλι-Λιβύη: 77-57, Αλ Ιτιχάντ-Λιβύη: 72-60, Κεϊρούν-Τυνησία: 86-56, Γουιντάν-Μαρόκο: 78-45) και σαν κερασάκι στην τούρτα ήρθε η σπουδαία επικράτηση (76-71) για δεύτερη φορά φέτος μετά το τουρνουά Χαρίρι του Λιβάνου επί της περσινής Πρωταθλήτριας Αφρικής, Σαλέ, η οποία είχε στερήσει το τρόπαιο από τη μεγάλη δύναμη της Τυνησίας. Γι’ αυτό, εξάλλου, και η διοίκηση της ομάδας έδωσε φέτος… ρέστα για να φέρει πίσω τον Ομοσπονδιακό προπονητή της Εθνικής Κύπρου, που είχε σπουδαίο παρελθόν στον σύλλογο.

Με πολύ ποιοτικό μπάσκετ, γρήγορο ρυθμό και υψηλά ποσοστά στο μακρινό σουτ, η Ράντες πανηγύρισε την πρωτιά στην Ζώνη Α’ της προκριματικής φάσης της Afroleague και με το νέο έτος ετοιμάζεται να δώσει παιχνίδια-φωτιά στο… κυρίως πιάτο της διοργάνωσης, όπου το επίπεδο είναι πολυ απαιτητικό με το νέο τρόπο διεξαγωγής που υπάρχει πλέον.

Το εντυπωσιακότερο όλων είναι ότι τα παιχνίδια έγιναν μέσα σε μόλις έξι μέρες, κι έτσι η ομάδα του κόουτς Γαβριήλ είχε μόλις ένα ρεπό, παίζοντας συνεχόμενους αγώνες. Αξιοσημείωτη ήταν η επίδοση των 69/152 προσπαθειών για τρεις πόντους, ήτοι το απίστευτο ποσοστό 46%, σε μια τόσο δύσκολη σειρά αγώνων.

Πλέον, στη διοργάνωση θα έχουμε 16 ομάδες, που θα χωριστούν σε 4 ομίλους των 4 ομάδων και θα προκριθούν 2 από κάθε όμιλο στα προημιτελικά (Elite 8), όπου και πάλι θα σχηματιστούν άλλοι 2 όμιλοι με τους 2 πρώτους από κάθε έναν να προκρίνονται στα ημιτελικά (Final-4), με φόντο το τρόπαιο! Η τελική φάση των τεσσάρων καλύτερων ομάδων θα λάβει χώρα 20-21 Απριλίου, με οικοδέσποινα μία εκ των φιναλίστ.

Να αναφέρουμε ξανά ότι περσινή κάτοχος του τροπαίου ήταν η Σαλέ από το Μαρόκο, η οποία είχε κατακτήσει τον τίτλο μέσα στην Τυνησία και συγκεκριμένα στο… σπίτι της Ράντες.
