Yang In-young played the role of flounder and contributed to the team’s victory.
In the cartoon ‘Slam Dunk’, there is a famous line, “Become muddy like flounder rather than flashy sea bream.” It means that in order to win, someone has to play the role of a flounder because not everyone can shine.
Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball, held at Dowon Gymnasium in Incheon on the 23rd, Incheon Shinhan Bank and Bucheon Hanawon Q face-to-face in the 6th round. Yang In-young, the captain of Hana 1 Q, played the role of flounder perfectly.
Yang In-young played for 29 minutes and 56 seconds, performing as a double-double with 9 points, 16 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocked shots. Hana 1 Q scored double digits with 4 starting players including Jeong Ye-rim (20 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists) and Shin Ji-hyun, 919 points, 3 3-point shots and 5 assists), and won 95-75, finishing the season with 5 wins (23 losses). harvested
On this day, Yang In-young’s shooting condition was not good. He threw 10 two-pointers, only three of which broke the rim. He took a confident mid-range shot, but it kept coming around the rim. Six of the nine total points were scored in the fourth quarter, when the game was already decided.
However, Yang In-young was not intimidated. He focused on defense and rebounding and kept Hana 1Q under the goal. His tenacity under the goal stood out to the extent that 6 out of 16 rebounds were offensive rebounds. The 16 rebounds are the most in a single game for an individual. The previous record was 14 caught against Shinhan Bank on January 21st.
After the match, coach Kim Do-wan of Hana One Q said, “Originally (Yang) In-young’s strength is his mid-range shot. However, the downside is that when he gets a little tired, he can only do his own thing. So, before the game, I said to In-young, ‘I want you to take responsibility for the rebound, as I am the tallest in our team, regardless of whether the shot goes in or not’. He protected my story so well.” 바카라사이트
He continued, “If In-young finds fun in basketball, he does it. Even if he doesn’t play, he’s good at something. He hopes that he will have the experience of riding the rhythm by raising his confidence in what he is good at. In order to do that, he has to try to run one more step even if it is a little difficult.”
Hana 1 Q has two games left until the end of the season. The situation has already confirmed the bottom place for two consecutive seasons. However, if captain Yang In-young does the dirty work without sacrificing himself, it is expected that he will be able to reap the beauty of the end.
