CHENGDU, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- Zhejiang rode on a strong second half to rally past Hebei 100-80 in the Women's Chinese Basketball Association (WCBA) league here on Sunday.
The team, led by manager Oscar Tabarez, held its third training session on Wednesday afternoon at the Uruguay Celeste Complex, with a full roster of 23 players.
Penalty kills turned out to be the key component of the match in Miskolc as three out of five goals were scored on a man-advantage, including the deciding one.
Falcao, who is Colombia's all-time leading scorer with 34 goals in 89 matches, has not represented his country since the penalty shootout defeat to Chile in the Copa America quarterfinals 15 months ago.
"Now is an opportune time for me to cement my place. I always say that it's important to feel the responsibility of playing for the national team but that shouldn't be overshadowed by pride. Otherwise the burden can become too much.
"I don't like to individualize," the 67-year-old said. "Today that was the [strikeforce] we chose, tomorrow it may be another. They have to work for the team, just as they all worked for the team. I want the whole team to have that mentality because it's the only way to win."
Xu, Liang and Zhang Manman got Jiangsu off to a quick start and combined for 21 first-quarter points, but Xinjiang withstood the trio's attack to tie the scores at 21-21 thanks to Wang Lili's 10 points.
The diminutive Coutinho then fired in a rare headed finish when he leaped higher than two Bolivia defenders after another Neymar cross from the left side of the penalty area.
"As a young team, we haven't played many tough games like this one, so we really cherish this win," Sun noted.
Playing with bench players on the court, Sichuan didn't surrender its advantage, extending it to 25 points at the break.
