Australia's Deegan Takes Unique Route To The Basket - Mar 27, 2019

Eurobasket's Articles

Being blind on her left eye hasn't stopped the Australian sharpshooter from helping her unfancied team reach the women's 3x3 semifinals. That has made Deegan a household name in Australia, where online wagering at mad-betting.com is also gaining popularity.
Time and again, Suzie-Rose Deegan has heard that her unique shooting style isn't the proper technique. However, the Aussie 3x3 basketballer has silenced her naysayers, especially those who don't know that her left eye is blind.
According to Deegan, she has a different shooting style from other basketball players, but it still gets the ball in the net. In fact, her unique style has helped the 17-year-old get to where she is today. Deegan helped her team get to the women's 3x3 semifinals with a 16-6 win while playing against Ukraine.
In an interview, Suzie-Rose revealed that most of her fans wonder how she made it to the big stage with a blind eye. However, she revealed that growing up partially blind hasn't hurt her performance. To her, using one eye on the pitch is just another normal day.
While Deegan wasn't blind at birth, she was born with a lazy eye, and her vision continued being worse due to a degenerative disorder. The condition eventually left her partially blind on her left eye when she was 13 years. To her, this was a blessing in disguise as she could comfortably approach her coach on using her shooting style since she couldn't change her condition.
Throughout her career, there has been a lot of criticism about her style. However, Deegan has done a great job at ignoring the critics by surrounding herself with people who support her like her teammates.
One of Deegan's teammate, Ruby Porter, said that it's obvious that her technique has been very beneficial to the team. The 17-year-old player said that the entire team is proud that Deegan has come this far, despite the obvious challenges that have been there.
The Australian team also features Alexander Fowler and Sara-Rose Smith, who only started playing together two weeks before the YOG. The two are traditional 5x5 players chosen by the Olympic committee because of their skill set. Nonetheless, it was incredible to see these players make it to the quarterfinals with such minimal preparation.
The Australian team was considered the underdog in the tournament, though Deegan believed that their physicality gave them an edge. According to her, it's not skills that brought them this far in the tournament, but rather the hustle and teamwork.
In the semi-finals, Australia faced France in a highly competitive match but lost 20-19. That saw the Australian team play China for the third place and they won 16-13. As a result, Australia ended the tournament in the 3rd place with five wins and two losses behind France who also lost two matches and won five. The USA emerged victorious after winning all their seven matches.
