Jung Yerim reflects on her last season.
After making her debut in the 2020-2021 season, Jung (175cm, F) was given playing time in her debut season. In his second year, he played more. He played in all 30 games, averaging 25 minutes per game and posting 5.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists.
And last season, in 2022-2023, he had the best year of his career. He averaged 11.4 points. He also grabbed 6.3 rebounds and dished out 1.7 assists per game. It’s clear that Jung has come a long way.
However, she was not satisfied with her performance. Reflecting on last season, she said, “After last season, I thought I wasn’t good enough. On paper, I can say that I grew. But if you look at it in detail, it’s not the case,” he said.메이저놀이터
“I made a lot of mistakes. At the beginning of the season, my mindset and mentality were shaky, and I couldn’t control that. We were not able to control those things, and we were passive in the match.”
“In the second half of the season, we struggled physically, which led to a lacklustre performance in attack. I also lacked concentration,” he said of his shortcomings.
“That’s why I really wanted to grow more in the next season. First of all, I lost the fight because of my lack of strength. I’m focusing on that. I’m also doing a lot of physical exercises,” he said.
“I want to improve in defence, and I want to defend the opponent’s ace. On offence, I want to improve my three-point shooting percentage. I’m confident in passing now. But if my shots go in, it will be easier to break through,” he added.
This season, Hana OneQ added veteran Kim Jong-yeon (179cm, F) to its roster. Kim is a veteran player who represents the WKBL. His roommate in the Taebaek training camp is Jeong Yerim, who has championship experience and will be a great mental support for the players.
“This time, (Kim) is sharing a room with my sister. She is very good at giving advice from her experience, which is very helpful. Especially, she cares a lot about taking care of her body and is very knowledgeable. I’m still young and ignorant about such things, but I’m learning a lot thanks to her. (Laughs) She’s very supportive,” she said of Kim Jong-un.
Finally, Jung said, “My goal is simple. I want to hear that I have grown more than last season. I know my deficiencies from last season, and now I want to fill them and become a bigger player. I will do my best to do that.” She concluded the interview with a promise.
