Before the game, Hyundai E&C faced bad news that Yang Hyo-jin, the “main tower”, was absent due to Corona 19. However, Na Hyun-soo, who replaced him, fulfilled his role and filled the void. In addition, while Yasmin scored 31 points, Hwang Min-kyung scored 18 points to lead the team to victory.
Coach Kang Seong-hyeong, whom we met after the game, said, “It was a difficult game without Yang Hyo-jin, but the factor of victory was that my teammates filled in well in the situation where there was a player vacancy. It is true that the first set was messy in the aftermath of Yang Hyo-jin’s absence, but nothing can be done without someone. He looked back on the game that day, saying, “I worked well as I filled it up.”
Despite the record of 13 consecutive wins, Coach Kang was calm. Coach Kang said, “I only won one game out of three rounds.” Coach Kang said, “There is no discussion with the players about the winning streak. However, I thought that the players would overcome the burden well because they have a competitive spirit.”
Instead, coach Kang put more meaning on the victory through the performance of the ‘substitute players’. Coach Kang praised the players, saying, “Because we knew that (Yang) Hyo-jin wasn’t playing before the game, the players must have been under a lot of pressure, but I think they think in a good way that if we do well, we will win.”
Next, Director Kang said, “It is not easy for (Na) Hyeon-soo to fill the void left by Hyo-jin while being back-up, but he came out as the first starter and played his role well enough. Yasmin also praised the players, saying, “I think the strength of our team is that other players fill in well, such as (Hwang) Yeon-joo well filling in when variables arise.”
On the other hand, director Kang Seong-hyung said that he would give Yang Hyo-jin, who left due to Corona 19, enough rest. Coach Kang said, “It is difficult for Yang Hyo-jin to participate in the Pepper Savings Bank match on the 18th. His return date is important, but since Hyojin has run a lot in the meantime, I think he should take a break for a while.”
