I believed constantly and sent infinite trust. He gave more encouragement than reprimand. He proved himself that he hadn’t wasted an inch of his 11 years.
Mirae Asset won the EVISU SPORTS Cup 2023 The K Employee Basketball League (www.kbasket.kr) 1st Group F preliminary round held at the gym near Gwanak-gu, Seoul on the 15th. 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals) and Park Jin-seo (11 points, 9 rebounds) combined to score 38 points, beating the pursuit of IBK Industrial Bank by 41-38.
We believed in each other until the end. Oh Gyu-jin and Shin Ji-soo crossed the inside and outside, and Park Jin-seo reliably protected the bottom of the goal amidst foul trouble. Oh Young-jin even played the part of Lee Hyun-woo, who was absent from the guard line due to personal circumstances, and Lee Dae-gwang and Hwang Jae-joon, along with their eldest brother Kim Jong-bae, showed their play without sacrificing themselves, contributing to the team’s victory.
In IBK Industrial Bank, two young jockeys Park Jun-ho (17 points, 9 rebounds, 3 steals) and Kim Eui-su (17 points, 10 rebounds, 2 3-point shots) held the center, and senior players such as Choi Jang-wook (2 points, 6 rebounds), Ahn Seong-hyun, and Choi Dong-soo took the lead Han Seung-hoon, Seo Won-cheol (5 rebounds), Eun Hee-joo, Choi Seong-il, Park Jung-min, and Kim Yu-rok did their part by actively taking on dirty work. However, he couldn’t overcome the last hurdle and lowered his head.
It was a fierce battle from the start. Mirae Asset took the lead in Shin Ji-soo, Park Jun-seo, and Oh Gyu-jin, who played a big role in the last game. Shin Ji-soo and Oh Gyu-jin scored goals while crossing the inside and outside, and Park Jin-seo persistently dug under the goal. Shin Ji-soo even succeeded in making a 3-point shot in the faith of his colleagues. Hwang Jae-joon and Oh Young-jin fought for a rebound and supported their teammates.
IBK Industrial Bank put Park Jun-ho and Ahn Seong-hyun on the bench, instead of putting Kim Eui-soo, Eun Hee-joo, Han Seung-hun, and Choi Jang-wook in first. It was the intention to push through physical strength by taking advantage of the abundant number of people available. However, it was difficult to stop Mirae Asset’s representative triangular formations Shin Ji-soo, Park Jin-seo, and Oh Gyu-jin. In response, Park Joon-ho was put in and scored one after another to counter the opponent’s momentum.
It was the same in the second quarter. For Mirae Asset, Shin Ji-soo persistently dug into the gaps in the opponent’s defense and earned a free throw, and Park Jin-seo scored from under the goal. The two jointly scored 9 points in the 2nd quarter to lead the team’s offense. Instead of giving Oh Young-jin and Hwang Jae-joon a break, Lee Dae-gwang and veteran Kim Jong-bae were put in, and they seemed to be paying attention to physical strength.
IBK Industrial Bank of Korea’s Park Jun-ho and Kim Eui-su actively dug under the opponent’s goal and scored. In particular, Kim Eui-soo’s performance shone. He threw a shot in front of the opposing center, Park Jin-seo, and got a foul. While Ahn Seong-hyun took the lead, Han Seung-hun, Choi Jang-wook, and Kim Yu-rok helped them by working hard on the dirty work.
In the second half, IBK Industrial Bank raised the momentum to bring the atmosphere. Park Jun-ho made use of his break-through ability to score, and participated in a rebound fight with Park Yong-joon and Choi Jang-wook. Kim Eui-soo helped Park Jun-ho dig into the net and shook the opponent’s defense with a 3-point shot. Utilizing all 12 people registered in the entry, Mirae Asset players did not take a break for a moment and took their strength away.
Mirae Asset also did not sit still. Kyu-Jin Oh and Young-Jin Oh took the lead. Oh Kyu-jin shook the opponent’s defense by going back and forth between the mid-range and the 3-point line, and led the fast attack. Oh Young-jin helped Oh Kyu-jin to manage the game, and he succeeded in making a 3-point shot, giving strength to the shoulders of his teammates. While giving Shin Ji-soo and Park Jin-seo a break and conserving their stamina, Hwang Jae-joon and Lee Dae-gwang made every effort to block the opponent’s attack.
The weight did not tilt on either side. He repeated pushing and pulling while maintaining the balance of power. Mirae Asset faced the bad news of Park Jin-seo committing 4 fouls in the middle of the 4th quarter, but Shin Ji-soo and Hwang Jae-joon took care of Park Jin-seo and secured the bottom of the goal. IBK Industrial Bank also seemed to overcome the bad news that hit the moment, such as Kim Eui-soo succeeding in a 3-point shot even though Park Jun-ho was suffering from foul trouble.
My hands were sweating enough that the match was not covered until about a minute before the end. In the midst of this, Mirae Asset struck first. With a narrow lead of 37-36, Park Jin-seo scored from under the goal and ran away with 39-36. IBK Industrial Bank also started to pursue with Park Jun-ho at 38-39. Mirae Asset made one of the two free throws Shin Ji-soo got from the opponent’s foul and ran away 40-38.
9 seconds left until the end of the match. IBK Industrial Bank applied for the last remaining timeout and assigned the attack to Park Jun-ho. The team members focused on creating a 1-1 chance for Park Jun-ho, and Park tried a layup shot by digging into a gap in the opponent’s defense. Unfortunately, the ball bounced around the rim. Mirae Asset Park Jin-seo rebounded the ball and even got a foul. Park Jun-ho only looked into the sky, feeling sorry for not being able to reciprocate the trust of his teammates.
Mirae Asset widened the gap to 41-38 by making one of the two free throws Park Jin-seo got from the opponent’s foul. IBK Industrial Bank, which had no timeouts left, immediately handed the ball to Ahn Seong-hyun, but too much time had passed. After the closing buzzer sounded, Mirae Asset players breathed a sigh of relief, and IBK Industrial Bank players lowered their heads in regret.
Meanwhile, Kyu-Jin Oh, a veteran of Mirae Asset, was selected as the EVISU SPORTS (https://www.evisusports.com/) MATCH MVP for this match, recording 14 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals. He said, “There are not many players who can help when a crisis hits like today, so if there are ups and downs in the composition of players, it shakes. Still, (Shin) Ji-su, who was in charge of the chairman, held the center well, and (Park) Jin-seo and other colleagues played their roles well, so it did not collapse.”
Although he won, it was Mirae Asset that was overpowered. Team captain Shin Ji-soo even mentioned that ‘attendance rate = skill’. However, because there were only 7 people in attendance that day, it was noticeable that they were struggling. In particular, it was a situation where Lee Hyun-woo, who was absent due to personal circumstances, had to run the game alone due to the vacancy.
“It was really difficult. The team members never replaced me (laughs). As the quarter passes, there are many parts that shake physically. I thought the game would go the way I wanted in today’s game, but in the second half, I struggled so much that I often caught up.” I’m probably watching it live, but since I won, I need to contact you quickly.”
“Certainly, as with team sports, it is important to catch the flow. It goes well in the beginning, fades in the second half, then heats up at the end, so there are many ups and downs during the game. If this process is repeated, the pressure can weigh on the body, but I think the results were good because I was catching up in both games and my concentration was well displayed. I think this will develop in future games as well… . I think we need to be well-regulated in terms of game management,” he said.
In the midst of this, it was Oh Gyu-jin who especially emphasized faith. The same goes for today’s match. “You have to hold on to yourself,” he said. Today, instead of me playing with the ball, (Shin) Ji-soo and (Park) Jin-seo played the Two Men game, etc., physically dispersing and using the time well, I went well with the flow. It was more effective to play the tempo basket than to score a lot. If we trust each other, we will be able to overcome this process well in the future.”
Despite the limited attack options here, the results were good. In response, “In fact, (Shin) Ji-soo was officially selected as the MATCH MVP in the first game, but the MVP selected by the team members was Hwang Jae-jun. This is because he did not shy away from under the goal and poured his energy into the defense. And when his eldest brother (Kim) Jong-bae goes on the court, he works hard on the dirty work, so me (Shin) Ji-soo and (Park) Jin-seo can focus on the attack. If we do everything we need to do and believe in each other, there will be better results. And the ace in (Park) Heechul is unable to come out due to injury, but if he comes out, the team will be completely different.” 토토사이트
At the last moment, it was Mirae Asset that increased concentration. However, it left a bit of a disappointment in free throws. In response, “It was a rim that bounced well. I wasn’t used to it. I lost my confidence because I missed both of my first two free throws, but I was sure how I would throw them. When it was important, I said to match the backboard and put it in, but both went in.” “When (Shin) Ji-soo and (Park) Jin-seo got free throws at the last moment, I thought, ‘If you put all of them in, it will go easily’. Until the result gets better, you need to catch one more free throw or one more rebound and have solid fundamentals without making mistakes. I think I need to constantly instill confidence in him.”
With the victory on the day, Mirae Asset ran a two-game winning streak. He said, “In both games, from the middle of the 3rd quarter to the beginning of the 4th quarter, there were foul troubles and physical difficulties. He will have to use patterns to help him get through these times. I think I will probably have to maintain this style for a while,” he said. I want to have fun playing basketball together.”
