Kang Yoo-rim, Samsung Life Insurance, ‘Endure the weight of the ace

The place is heavy and dangerous. ace.

Kang Yu-rim of Yongin Samsung Life Insurance has the most playing time on the team this season. The average of 34 minutes and 15 seconds in 23 games is the 6th highest in the league, and in terms of minutes, it means that he walked the court for 787 minutes.

It can be seen as a positive effect because it is the increased playing time this season, especially as his skills have risen vertically. Last season’s record was 7.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in an average of 26 minutes and 24 seconds in 29 games. He is averaging 13.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists this season. Most indicators show an upward trend. 토토사이트

However, since the injuries of key players of Samsung Life Insurance last December, Kang Yoo-rim has been playing for more than 30 minutes in every game, and his scoring ability, which showed explosive power at the beginning of the season, is experiencing some ups and downs. The defensive pressure is getting stronger and the risk of injury is gradually increasing with the accumulated playing time.

Prior to the confrontation between Samsung Life Insurance and Bucheon Hana 1Q held at the Bucheon Gymnasium on the 4th, I asked coach Lim Geun-bae if Kang Yu-rim felt burdened by the playing time. Director Lim Geun-bae said, “I ask directly. I guess it’s not that hard. Over the course of this season, the defense has become stronger and the struggles have increased. Now (Kang) Yurim has to endure it. Sometimes it doesn’t go well and sometimes it goes down. I think it’s the process of Yurim growing up.”

He continued, “When I first played the game, I told him to play the game after looking at a rebound and looking at a defense. He also showed a positive appearance in the last match against Woori Bank. If you overcome it like that, you will be able to overcome it even if the opponent defends strongly.”

In the match against Hana 1 Q, Kang Yoo-rim played 33 minutes and 57 seconds, but recorded 6 points and 8 rebounds. Until the third quarter, Kang Yu-rim’s field goal success rate was 0% (8 attempts). Nevertheless, there is a reason why he is trusted by coach Lim Geun-bae. 1 minute and 39 seconds before the end of the game, which was being chased by Hana 1 Q in the 4th quarter, Kang Yu-rim broke all the momentum of Hana 1 Q with a 3-point shot. It was also Kang Yoo-rim’s first successful field goal in the game. With Jo Soo-ah (15 points), Kim Dan-bi (11 points), Shin I-seul (11 points), and Kang Yoo-rim (6 points) finishing the game, Samsung Life Insurance won 63-51.

Coach Lim Geun-bae, who we met after the game, once again expressed his faith in Kang Yoo-rim. Director Lim Geun-bae said, “Shooter is like that. It is a shooter to put one in at the last minute without going in until the end.”

The weight of an ace is heavy and sometimes dangerous. However, Kang Yoo-rim overcomes difficulties and dangers and runs again for the day when he grows up to be a decent ace.
