Manager Kim Sang-woo of Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance
Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which challenged the KOVO Cup for the first time in five years since the 2018 Jecheon Games, remained in second place.
Triangle squadrons such as Park Sung-jin (30 points), Shin Ki-ho (16 points), and Kim Jung-ho (13 points) fought hard, but they swallowed their disappointment.
Head coach Kim Sang-woo said, “Overall, OK Financial Group players performed well.” “We made a mistake that we didn’t usually do, and I think we also felt the burden of a big game,” he said adding, “The opponent was also good in defense and determination.” “I was pushed back in that area,” he said.
Although it failed to reach the final quarter, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance had more income than regret. It was not found in this tournament that he had been in the bottom ranks of the V-League due to his poor performance recently. Although there has been no significant change in the composition of the players, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance has become more powerful.
Head coach Kim also said, “The players were depressed after last season.” However, as I prepared for this competition, the atmosphere improved and I gained confidence. He also showed his willingness to do it, he said. “This tournament will be an opportunity for the players to grow.” 토토사이트
Park Sung-jin, who is in his second year as a professional, is the best harvest in this tournament. He played in all five games and was the team’s main striker. He also showed consistency in scoring more than 20 points per game.
Park Sung-jin’s growth is good news for Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which includes outside heaters Yosvany Hernandez and Apogit Spiker Eddie in the regular league.
Head coach Kim said, “Yosvany and Eddie are aggressive players, so we are thinking about how to combine them,” adding, “If Park Sung-jin grows, there will be a puzzle.” I’ll try to make it well,” he said.
He also gave words of encouragement to the players. Coach Kim said, “I am grateful to the players who played hard. We lost today’s game because we didn’t do well. “But I hope we don’t get disappointed and get confident and prepare well for the regular league,” he said.
