Basketball in the Gers: the VCGB must not relax

the essential
The Greens and Whites will face young talents from Toulouse tomorrow.

After a first and convincing victory against a top 5 of the hen, Réal Chalossais, the smile was on all the faces of the Vécégébistes. But on Tuesday, the coaches, Thomas Baurens and Frédéric Zadro quickly put the Greens and Whites back to work to improve this result on Saturday against Toulouse hopes.

A young team without complex

This young team from Toulouse is the reserve team of the Toulouse Basket Club which plays in National 1. Promoted this summer to National 3, it is made up of promising players who are just waiting to progress to have their chance higher. Axel Dao, coach of this formation, has built a team with long-toothed potential, who play, despite their age (18 to 23), with altruism and nerve.

The homogeneity of Toulouse, 9 players with more than 7 points on average, allowed them to hang four victories including two against Colayrac and Agen who overcame the VCGB. They remain on two consecutive victories with a new cruising speed. Indeed, in their first 8 games, they had an average of 70 points scored, but in their last two games, they averaged 100 points… This difference comes from taking responsibility for the outside game, with a line of five back players who score a whopping 75% of their team’s points.

stay serious

It might seem easy to play a team made up of young, inexperienced players. But the results of these Toulouse people suggest the opposite. Indeed, the task will not be easy for the locals who will have to control the enthusiasm and audacity of the visitors to avoid disappointment.

The Vécégébistes will most certainly be keen to end the year well in their gym, but for that, it will be necessary to control the tempo of the meeting and not to give ammunition to the young guns who would not fail to punish them.

Support for the Telethon

On this weekend dedicated to the Telethon, the VCGB has decided to lend its support. The entire hamper sold on Saturday evening at the arenas will be donated to the Telethon. Do not hesitate to ask for it when you arrive in the room.
