The foundation of the Tongyeong Basketball Sports Club’s improvement was the Stobrig last winter.

We played nine good teams, including Songjeongcho, Samgwangcho, Chilgokcho, and others, so we improved a lot. “Chairman Kim Do-han has a lot of momentum and does a good job of scouting,” he said. The players in the basketball club love to play basketball, so they have high potential.”

Park Si-hoo (16.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.8 steals) and Kang Ha-yoon (7.8 points, 9.8 assists, 2.8 steals, 1.8 blocks) led the team in scoring and rebounding.

“I was surprised, too,” said Ha Sung-ki, referring to the team’s run to the final tournament. “Park Si-hoo played unexpectedly well as a guard, and 먹튀검증 Kang Ha-yoon, Kim Jae-yoon, and Kim Woo-bin did the same. Both offense and defense improved,” he reflected.

Coach Ha Sung-ki said, “Last year, the players were nervous because it was their first appearance. We practiced less than this time. We played a big tournament like the boys’ championship for the first time without knowing anything.” ”This time, we played in the association championship, and our performance improved. The anxiety about the game disappeared. That was a big thing. Last year, I didn’t know what to expect, but this year I prepared well from the Stovrig,” he said.

Tongyeong City Basketball Sports Club’s first opponent was Busan Seongnam. Avoided a strong team. Daejinwoon isn”t bad. However, Busan Seongnam can also consider Daejinwoon to be good.

Coach Ha Sung-ki said, “(Busan Seongnam) has a good defense and an ace player, but he couldn’t play in the association championship because he had a cast. This time, he will play. I heard that when he comes out, the other players’ performance improves and the team’s balance improves.” ”Busan Seongnam has good defense and shooting. We have to take the first game. We have to trust our players.”

“We have a height advantage. Even if Seongnam or Songcheon (who they will likely face if they beat Seongnam) have better defense and fundamentals, we have to play post offense. We are over 170 centimeters tall,” he said, adding, ‘We want to play fast basketball, so it will be a fun game if we can play fast breaks.’

Coach Ha Sung-ki concluded, “I want to play this tournament for the players, and I am grateful that they practiced on weekends despite having less practice than other elite players.

I want to share the joy of winning the first boys’ championship with them so that their hard work is not in vain.” ”Chairman Kim Do-han gave me a lot of support, so I was able to come this far. I am grateful to the players,” he said, hoping for the first victory.
