“There are still many things to improve during the break.” This is the goal that Yang Jun (200cm, C) announced.
Jun Yang, a senior at Korea University, made a big success in the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League regular league home game against Chosun University held at Korea University Hwajeong Gymnasium on the 13th, playing for 19 minutes and 11 seconds, recording 15 points and 5 rebounds. Korea University won a complete victory, 94-43, thanks to Moon Yoo-hyeon (24 points, 5 assists).
After the game, Yang Jun said, “I couldn’t bring the atmosphere against Chosun University in the beginning. He’s fortunate that in the second half he can bring the vibe. Thanks to that, I think he was able to finish the game comfortably,” he said.안전놀이터
As Yang Jun said, Korea University has an overwhelming advantage in terms of objective strength, but struggled against the fierce counterattack of Chosun University until the first half. At the end of the second quarter, the score was 37-29, only an 8-point lead.
Yang Jun said, “I don’t think the players did it the way they normally did. Physical fights were passive, and boxing out and rebounding were the same. After the first half, the coach pointed out a lot about that part. Thanks to that, he looked back on the situation at the time, saying, “The players came together.”
Head coach Joo Hee-jeong said, “We will play forward-oriented basketball this season as well.” If so, what part did director Joo Hee-jung emphasize toward Yang-jun, who is in charge of the goal with sophomore Shin Joo-young (200cm, C) as the center?
Yang Joon said, “Since tall forwards come out and play a lot, they order the role of finishing the position more firmly on the inside. In addition, he emphasized the part of taking responsibility for physical fights and rebounds with spirit.”
Finally, Yang Joon said, “There are still many things to improve during the break. It seems that the weight and stamina are still lacking. The part that finishes under the goal also needs to be supplemented. I plan to practice more in various areas,” he hinted at his goal.
