The height of Yang Jun (200cm, C) overwhelmed Dongguk University.
Korea University defeated Dongguk University 96-56 in the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League regular league Namdaebu match held at Dongguk University Pildong Campus Gymnasium on the 2nd. He maintained his lead with 11 victories. 1.5 games away from 2nd place Yonsei University (9 wins, 1 loss).
Although Korea University has a strong player base, Korea University’s one-two punch is solid. They are Park Moo-bin (187cm, G) and Moon Jung-hyun (194cm, F). Because Park Moo-bin’s clutch scoring ability and Mun Jeong-hyeon’s various roles harmonize, Korea University can lead alone.
However,먹튀검증Park Moo-bin and Moon Jung-hyun cannot stay at Korea University forever. After digesting this season right away, knock on the professional stage. Korea University coach Hee-jeong Joo is already thinking about the gap between Moo-bin Park and Jung-hyeon Moon.
So, during the season, he said, “I see 2024 as a year of review.” Not a pleasant story for those who will be in the 4th grade in 2024. At the same time, you should use it as a stimulus.
The same goes for Yangjun. Yangjun is currently playing as the starting center. Although his basic skills and detail are lacking, he is a big man who is developing little by little based on his athletic ability and sincerity.
In his first defense, Yangjun was hit by Ji Yong-hyeon (201cm, C)’s corner jumper. However, after standing in the same position in the attack, he made a bounce pass to Kim Tae-hoon (190cm, F), who came into the paint zone. He left his first record in a different way from Ji Yong-hyun.
However, Yang Jun did not focus on records. Bertie pushed Dongguk University’s big man’s offense out of the paint zone with his defense, and gave his teammates the right to attack with a rebound fight. A screen from outside the 3-point line also created a scoring opportunity for Moon Jung-hyun. Thanks to this, Korea University took a 14-3 lead after 3 minutes and 22 seconds of the game.
Yangjun showed a concise movement in the second half of the first quarter. And he showed the power of the height. After he got close to the rim, he finished off a teammate’s pass with ease. At the same time, Lee Dae-gyun (201cm, C)’s score under the goal was minimized.
Yangjun also moved around the 3-point line in the second quarter. It was like that for all airlifters. Although his concentration dropped during the second round of action, he did his part in the early part of the second quarter. Because Yang Joon endured, Korea University was able to widen the score gap. The score was 38-17, with 5 minutes and 24 seconds left in the second quarter.
However, Yangjun did not play in the middle of the second quarter. This is because the Korea University bench gave freshman Lee Dong-geun (198cm, F) a chance. It was also a measure to prepare for Yang Jun’s selection for the Universiade. However, despite Yang Jun being on the bench for quite a while, Korea University finished the first half with a score of 54-25.
Yangjun did not step on the court even in the third quarter. Lee Dong-geun, who was put in 4 minutes and 24 seconds into the second quarter, replaced Yang Jun. Lee Dong-geun, who was put in place of Yang-jun, showed ball handling, mobility, and a wide range of activities. He also eased the burden of defense and rebounding on Mun Jeong-hyeon.
Korea University led 66-30 five minutes before the end of the third quarter. The match was virtually decided, and Korea University did not let go of the victory it had captured at this time. It was a win because they pushed hard from the beginning.
Yangjun stepped on the court again in the fourth quarter. The match was split, but it was because the Korea University bench tried to check various combinations including Yang Jun. Also, I had to match Yangjun’s sense of the game and the court balance to some extent.
Forward resources such as Park Joon-hyeong (191cm, F) – Kim Min-gyu (196cm, F) – Lee Dong-geun came out as Yang Jun’s partners. Yangjun’s height was maximized, and Yangjun also used his height more. And he also showed the composure to see the corner shooter during the fast break.
The score difference widened, but Yang Jun focused on rebounding. In particular, he made Dongguk University collapse with a second chance point following an offensive rebound. Until the end, he did not even give Dongguk University a chance to breathe. Yangjun’s height was so powerful. He was also one of the driving forces that overwhelmed Dongguk University.
On the other hand, Yang Jun’s record for Dongguk Match was 16 points (2 points: 8/9), 13 rebounds (5 attacks), 7 assists and 4 steals in 24 minutes and 24 seconds.
