They are selfless law enforcers on the basketball court, facing pressure and facing doubts, they never flinch.
In fact, off the court, they are all ordinary employees, including teachers and civil servants. It is because of their love of basketball that they are on the court.
Although it is not the athlete who sends the ball into the basket, the game can become more orderly and professional because of the presence of referees. It can be said that without referees, a game will become chaotic and disorderly.
A professional referee can make the game more smooth.
At present, there are 147 first-level basketball referees in Shanghai, a small number and extremely busy.
They are active in amateur basketball games in various districts, have no weekends, and even have to “work overtime” on weekdays. These situations have become the norm.
During the reporter’s week-long visits, this group gradually surfaced. They have an extraordinary love for basketball and their profession, and the work of referees is also leading them to continue to shine in their positions.
The Passionate Sunday of Amateur Basketball Referees——The young player yelled at Qin Lin, and the scene almost got out of control
It was an ordinary Sunday morning. In the basketball hall of Shanghai Middle School, there were already two teams ready to go——Cambridge International Middle School vs. Jiaotong University High School.
The game officially started at 10:00, and the referee Qin Lin arrived at 9:30 to prepare. It took him more than an hour to rush from his home in Gucun Park to Shanghai Middle School on Baise Road.
And Qin Lin had to whistle from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, and only had time to eat during the intermission at noon.
Such a high-intensity day is Qin Lin’s daily “referee weekend”. He is used to this kind of life, and even if there is no game, he will feel idle.
The game is fierce, the players are working hard, and the pressure of whistleblowing is increasing. The game yesterday morning was called “Jr.NBA Series Shanghai Station”. There were 6 high school teams from Shanghai participating.
The top four teams will enter the semi-finals, and then the finals to determine the final champion of Shanghai.
The No. 54 Middle School and the Affiliated High School of Jiaotong University participating in this competition are all famous basketball schools, especially the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University is the runner-up of the Shanghai High School Basketball League this time, and it can be called the strongest team.
The strength of Cambridge International High School, the opponent of the first round of the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University, should not be underestimated. The coach of the team is a foreign coach. The overall style of play is very simple, efficient and full of hard work.
From the very beginning of the game, the two teams had frequent physical contact. It was the first time to officiate such a game. Qin Lin and his companions obviously felt uncomfortable at the beginning.
At the end of the halftime, Qin Lin was already sweating profusely, and Cao Yue, the deputy referee, kept wiping the sweat off his brow.
Qin Lin bluntly said that judging from the first half, the scale was a little loose, and he was worried that the two teams would move more and more.
Jiaotong University High School players yelled at the referee The scene almost lost control During the second half of the game, Cambridge International was always in the stage of chasing points, and the Jiaotong University High School was always unable to draw the score, and the point difference was always maintained at 5-7 points.
The No. 10 ace player of the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University even committed 5 fouls and left the court. The coach of the team began to put pressure on the referee’s penalty from the sidelines: “Is this an NBA rule or a FIBA rule? It’s not about playing.
Is it the FIBA rules?” And in the next attack, the players from the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University were pulled down during a layup, and the coach on the sidelines jumped up from his seat like a rocket and shouted: “See?
, the referee, they all locked their throats! It’s illegal!” But this time, Qin Lin gave an ordinary shooting foul.
It may be that he has been accumulating dissatisfaction with the referee. The No. 11 player on the field of the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University finally lost his composure after being fouled once.
He was pulled for a layup from outside the three-point line. At this time, the referee blew the whistle, the goal was invalid, and 2 free throws were made.
When the verdict was made, the player yelled at Qin Lin: “2 1! What are you doing!” Facing the player’s loud questioning, Qin Lin responded concisely: “Start from outside the three-point line, 2 free throws
!” Qin Lin’s unhesitating attitude also made the coach of the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University realize that if he doesn’t control the attitude of the players on the field, the team may be punished additionally. He immediately signaled the players to raise their hands and signal to the referee that they must obey
It was also Qin Lin’s extremely resolute penalty and subsequent quick on-the-spot reaction that kept the game from getting out of control. In the end, the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University defeated the opponent by 8 points.
Complete 5 “graduation”.
Side by side summary after the game There were mistakes and the rhythm control was not good. After the game, the coach of the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University specially called the player who was yelling at Qin Phosphorus on the field and asked him to apologize to the referee.
Qin Lin smiled and told the reporter that in fact, everyone is for the victory. He understands the players’ excitement on the court, but off the court, everyone is a friend.
Sitting on the sidelines, Qin Lin also began to summarize the whistleblowing of the game one by one.
He thinks that the game was not whistled well, and there were indeed some mistakes.
Especially a suspected walk of Cambridge International. Due to his position far away, the players of Cambridge International were surrounded by three players from the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University, and there may be some confusion under their feet, while the coach from the High School Affiliated to Jiaotong University closest
Shouting to walk.
It may be this mistaken penalty that made them feel dissatisfied afterwards.
In addition, Qin Lin said that this game also made him realize that the two styles
