Kwon Soon-woo (188cm, G), who recorded the first 20-10 of the season, is struggling.
Sangmyung University greeted the year 2023 with hope. However, it is sluggish with 1 win and 10 losses in the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League. Even if they win all their remaining 3 games, they cannot make it to the playoff stage.
Sangmyung University, which is the only one of the 12 1st division universities with fewer than 12 students, is having a hard time with injured players pouring in.
Among them, Kwon Soon-woo recently led the team in scoring.
Kwon Soon-woo, who did not live up to expectations in his freshman year due to his poor shooting sense, recovered his scoring ability last year by raising an average of 15.6 points.
At the beginning of this season, Choi Jun-hwan and Kim Jeong-hyeon stood at the center of Sangmyung University’s offense. In the meantime, Kwon Soon-woo, who had consistently scored in double digits, slowed down by only scoring in single digits in the two games right before the Korea-Japan University Basketball Tournament.
Kwon Soon-woo came back to life with an average of 19.0 points and 6.7 rebounds in the last 3 games. Most of all, it is noticeable that he is recording a high success rate of 42.9% (6/14) while making two three-point shots in all three games. His 3-point shot, which he didn’t get into when he was a freshman, gets better and better as time goes on. Moreover, against Yonsei University, he compiled his first 20-10 of the season with 25 points and 10 rebounds.
Kwon Soon-woo played in all 11 games this season, averaging 12.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 33.3% (12/36) of 3-point shooting success rate.
Kwon Soon-woo, who has experienced more defeats than victories, said, “It is not easy. I want to win, but I lose every day, so I can’t lift my face to my friends who came to support me.” The coach takes care of his body a lot, but he plays with 6 or 7 people and it is not easy to digest every game. That’s why I was injured, and I, Kim Tae-ho, and Choi Jun-hwan are also not in good shape.”
When he said that his scoring ability was revived, Kwon Soon-woo said, “Last year, I tried to solve only what Jung Joo-young made, but this year I practiced a lot to play comfortably while watching the situation, and the coach wants me to do the same. I made a lot of goals myself,” he said.
“I think more about the team than the individual. The team prioritizes winning. Kwon Soon-woo, who desperately wants to win, said, “I want to be the player the team needs.” That judgment is not 100% certain. If I play more leisurely, I think my skills will improve a little more.”
Sangmyung University will finish the College Basketball League with Dankook University on the 9th, Chosun University on the 12th, and Korea University on the 26th. After reorganizing the team, he aims to restore his honor at the MBC Cup National University Basketball Tournament scheduled to open on the 11th of next month.토토사이트
Kwon Soon-woo pledged, “Since the college league cannot go to the playoffs, I want all the players to finish well without getting hurt, and I want to make good grades during the MBC Cup.”
