Korea Gas Corporation’s task emphasizing defense, discovering various defense resources
Daegu Korea Gas Corporation needs to discover various defensive resources.
Korea Gas Corporation was one of the candidates to win the 2022-2023 season. SJ Belrangel (177cm, G), Lee Dae-seong (190cm, G), Jeong Hyo-geun (200cm, F), and Lee Dae-heon (196cm, F) were evaluated as strong, and Chabawi (190cm, F)-Jo Sang-yeol ( This is because backup resources such as 188cm, F) – Jeon Hyeon-woo (193cm, F) – Shin Seung-min (195cm, F) were solid.
However, Korea Gas Corporation was shaken from the beginning of the 2022-2023 season. The losing streak was repeated. Injuries to domestic메이저사이트 key resources have accumulated, and foreign players have not been able to demonstrate their skills. They failed to make it to the playoffs, let alone the championship match.
Director Yoo Hoon Yoo, who led the team for over 10 years, including Incheon Electronic Land, the predecessor of Korea Gas Corporation, took off his clothes. General manager Shin Seon-woo, general manager Lee Min-hyung, and head coach Kim Seung-hwan were the same. Kang Hyuk, the youngest coach, took over as acting manager.
What KOGAS wants is change and communication. Acting manager Kang Hyuk was a suitable person in that respect. Not only does he know Korea Gas Corporation well, but he is trusted by the athletes.
Acting manager Kang Hyuk’s first focus after taking office is ‘defense’. From the 25th until right before the field training, we plan to focus on defense training such as side step, one-on-one defense, and rotation defense at the Daegu Indoor Gymnasium. Because he thought that establishing a foundation was the first step.
The specific task that acting coach Kang Hyuk thought of was to maintain the defensive energy level for a long time. For that reason, he tries to give many players a chance. It is because the strong defense that Acting Manager Kang Hyuk wants comes out only when many players are involved in a lot of activity.
Foreign players can also live up to the color of acting coach Kang Hyuk to some extent. The contract announcement has not been finalized, but the two new foreign players who will join are players who put a lot of energy into defense. Isaiah Hicks (204cm, F), who is likely to be the first option, has been highly evaluated for his defense for two seasons from the 2020-2021 season, and Anthony Moss (200cm, F), who is strong as the second option, also has strengths in defending under the goal.
However, only one foreign player can stand on the court. Besides, the burden of foreign players in KBL is huge. The same goes for Korea Gas Corporation. We need a defensive control tower or key defensive resource that can lighten the burden of the two foreign players.
The qualifications that a defense control tower must have are a wide range, vigorous activity, and understanding. However, it is difficult to find a player who meets all of these requirements in KBL. It is even more so to find it in Korea Gas Corporation, which is evaluated as having low power.
However, there are defensive resources that can create synergy with teammates. No, there are players who have to do that. This is true of veterans who have been on the team for a long time, such as Cha Ba-wi and Lee Dae-heon. Chabawi first. As a key resource for the outer defense, you need to digest more time than before. As captain, he should be able to hold the team together.
and Lee Dae-heon. Lee Dae-heon, a key domestic big man, must partner with a foreign player. He shows wide defensive range based on the paint zone and must struggle with opposing big men under the rim. He has to relieve the physical and defensive burden of foreign players.
However, both players have an element of anxiety. This is because Chabawi has a time bomb called ‘calf pain’, and Lee Daeheon is not a player specialized in defense. In addition, since he was selected for the national team, he has little time to get along with new foreign players. Also, if both players stand on the court for a long time throughout the season, the physical strain on both players can also increase.
So, KOGAS needs to find defensive resources to reduce the burden on the two players. Or you need to find a defensive resource that can go beyond the two players. It’s not an easy task, but acting supervisor Kang Hyuk considers it mandatory. For that reason, I am motivating all players.
A specific reason that motivates you. As I said earlier, it’s about finding resources that can boost your team’s morale on defense. When there are more resources to put strength into defense, Korea Gas Corporation’s performance goes up. This is why the coaching staff and players of Korea Gas Corporation are desperate for ‘defensive training’.
