Willow and Raina Meet Kim Yeon-kyung and Become a Team
“A good team is not a ‘substance’ made of a perfect combination of players, but rather a ‘state’ that many players reach by sympathizing with each other and helping to fill the void.” – Kwak Han-young “Volleyball, The Moment You Fall in Love.”
Now, he is making headlines every day for professional volleyball players, but Heungkuk Life Willow (26, U.S.) was a player who was difficult to put not only “perfect” but also “good” adjectives in front of him.
If that’s the case, there wouldn’t have been two ‘drinking water’ attempts by foreign players.
Raina (25, Japan), the same team, is also the lowest-ranked player in the Asian quarter player draft.
However, as the two players met and formed a team, Heungkuk Life began the fifth round with a shutout (3-0) victory for two consecutive games, even though “Volleyball Empress” Kim Yeon-kyung (36, Heungkuk Life) suffered a slump.
On the 25th of last month, ‘Balli Ball Bikini’ dealt with Heungkuk Life having a hard time attacking when both Kim Yeon-kyung and foreign players are in the back.
“In Kim Yeon-kyung and Daegak, it is not easy to fundamentally solve this problem if the outside heater does not support it,” he wrote.
Here, ‘Kim Yeon-kyung and the outside heater on the diagonal’ is Raina.
Raina was a player who had only 0.244 attack efficiency until the fourth round when he played with Yelena (27, Bosnia and Herzegovina).
Then, in the fifth round, he worked with Willow, raising this record to 0.507, the current number one in the women’s team.
In volleyball, player A and player B ‘stand at the opposite angle’ means that when A is at the potential, B is always at the rear.
Conversely, player B is always in the potential even when player A is in the rear position.
Therefore, when Kim Yeon-koung is in the back, Raina should be responsible for the attack from the left side of the potential.
And in two out of three of these rotation situations, Willow is always in the potential.
Willow is an operative spiker he used to call ‘Light’, so he’s responsible for the right side of the coat.
In this situation, if Raina’s offense is reduced, the opponent team blocker can empty the left side of the court.
If you serve Kim Yeon-koung, you can also consider emptying the center.
When the outside heater is in the rear, it is common to attempt a “pipe attack” in the center of the court.
If Kim Yeon-koung takes the space in the middle of the court because she cares about the serve receiving, the set (toss) will have no choice but to turn right.
Heungkuk Life Insurance is also the lowest among the seven women’s clubs in the percentage of choosing fast attacks (6.5%) that middle blockers usually try until the fourth round.
You can also choose the opposite direction, depending on your opponent’s managerial propensity or game conditions.
Even if I put a blocker on the offer spiker, I’ll give you a point anyway, so I might decide to block the left side.
And any player has no choice but to have a hard time raising their scores as the number of blockers increases.
Raina recorded an attack efficiency of 0.368 when there was no opponent blocker or one (running set) until the fourth round, but only 0.188 when there were two or more (steel set).
So when “both wings” are balanced, you can confuse the opponent’s blocker, so that the overall team’s attack efficiency will increase again.
It’s at this point where Reyna is benefiting from Willow.
After the Jangchung GS Caltex match on the 2nd, Raina said, “The presence of a blocker has a great influence. Because of Willow, the opponent blocker is conscious of him, so I feel that the attack has become easier.”
In fact, if you look at the GIF above, you can see that the GS Caltex blocking line is conscious of Willow and gives Raina a “one (1) blocking” situation.
In terms of the game alone, 11 of the 27 times Raina tried to attack (40.7%) were running sets.
By the fourth round, Raina had attempted to attack in running set situations at 29.0%.
It’s the same for Willow to feel this way.
Willow also said, “Because of Raina and Kim Yeon-koung, there was often only one opponent blocker. So it was easy to attack because the diagonal was empty.”
With Raina and Willow cooperating like this, Heungkuk Life has a team attack efficiency of 0.393 even when Kim Yeon-kyung is in the back in the fifth round.
Heungkuk Life Insurance was only 0.238 in attack efficiency under the same circumstances before the fourth round.
What’s lacking is that many players have reached a certain “state” by sympathizing with each other and helping to fill the void.
Of course, the state (狀態), which means “the shape or circumstance of things and phenomena” (the National Institute of the Korean Language’s “Standard Korean Dictionary”), can change at any time.
GS Caltex has the highest percentage of allowing running sets to opponents (32.2%) among the seven women’s teams = with weaknesses in blocking.
On the other hand, Chung Kwan-jang, the opponent of the match on the 8th, has the highest percentage (6.5%) of blocking attempts.
Can Kim Yeon-koung, Raina, and Willow triangular formation help each other to break through the blocking wall of the jeonggwanjang.
When that happens, the state of Heungkuk Life can only become a state (常態) that means ‘the shape or circumstance of normal times’. 안전한 파워볼사이트
