Korean Air’s Lim Dong-hyuk scores 32 points in one man show
IBK IBK, led by head coach Kim Ho-cheol, snapped a five-game losing streak.
IBK defeated Korea Expressway Corporation 3-0 in straight sets in the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Women’s Division at the Gimcheon Indoor Gymnasium on Sunday.
In a pre-match broadcast interview, IBK head coach Kim Ho-cheol emphasized the importance of the players shaking off the psychological pressure. He said, “I think our mood was down as the losing streak got longer. I’m having a lot of conversations with the players to make them think that they can play with stability,” he said.
Another concern is that Kim Hee-jin, a national team member who returned to the court after right knee surgery, is not performing at her best. Coach Kim Ho-cheol said, “It’s a little frustrating. Hee-jin would help the team a lot if she could do her part, but her recovery is slow. She’s not at 100 percent, even though she seems to be,” he lamented.
Kim Jong-min, head coach of Korea Expressway Corporation, who returned home after defeating bottom-placed Pepper Savings Bank on the third day, said, “I hope Bae Yoo-na can improve a bit more, and Kim Se-bin has grown a lot. She’s a rookie, but her record is good and she’s playing with a lot of pressure, so I’m trying to make her feel comfortable.”
“What I always emphasize is that I want them to be versatile and not be too one-dimensional, and that’s not easy,” he said of the setters.
