China Daily, January 11 (Reporter Sun Xiaochen) The Chinese Men’s Basketball Professional League officially announced that Xinjiang Yilit’s male basketball player Zhou Qi was elected for the 2020-2021 season in December CBA League Caterpillar’s Defensive Player of the Month.
From the 13th round to the 23rd round, Zhou Qi’s Xinjiang men’s basketball team averaged 108.5 points per game. Zhou Qi’s personal data is impeccable:he averaged 2.1 blocks and 7.6 defensive rebounds per game. When Zhou Qi played, the Xinjiang team lost 11.8 points per 100 rounds. The Xinjiang team without Zhou Qi seemed a little strenuous in defense.
In addition to the top individual data in the league, Zhou Qi’s recent comprehensive data is also very eye-catching. On December 18, against Sichuan, Zhou Qi scored 25 points, 13 rebounds and 6 blocks; three days later, against Tianjin, Zhou Qi scored 23 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 blocks. On December 30, he faced Sichuan again and Zhou Qi scored 28. Points 17 rebounds and 5 blocks. In the 12 games that Zhou Qi played in the second stage, he had blocked shots in 11 games and doubled in rebounds in 8 games.
Last season, Zhou Qi was elected Caterpillar’s Defensive Player of the Year in the CBA League. His defensive dominance has been widely recognized. This season, although the transfer of outstanding players such as Xirelijiang, Kolan Bake, Yu Changdong and other teams to other teams has affected the overall strength of the Xinjiang team. It had a certain impact, but Zhou Qi’s outstanding performance allowed the Xinjiang team to remain among the strong teams. At present, the Xinjiang team has 19 wins and 7 losses in 26 games, ranking fourth in the league. Such results are undoubtedly gratifying and exceed expectations.
In the past, Zhou Qi was the absolute”ace” of the Xinjiang team. Starting this season, Zhou Qi has gradually grown from the”ace” to the leader of the team. He has become accustomed to using his performance on the court to encourage the team. .
The solid defense lays the foundation for the success of the team, and the indestructible defense is made by the perseverance, hard work and focus of the players. I sincerely hope that Zhou Qi can make persistent efforts, continue to improve, and make more contributions to the Xinjiang team and the Chinese Men’s Basketball Team.
