“I think blocking should be good.” Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong said this at a meeting with reporters who visited the site ahead of the 2022-23 Dodram V-League KB Insurance home game held at Cheonan Yu Gwan-soon Gymnasium on the 12th.
As Director Choi mentioned, Hyundai Capital was ahead of KB Insurance in height. Hyundai Capital defeated KB Insurance with a set score of 3-1 that day, but it broke the will of KB Insurance by blocking the opponent’s attack at every turn.
Coach Choi said in an official interview after the game, “In fact, I was a little worried about the players’ physical condition ahead of today’s (12th) game.
From the perspective of KB Insurance, Vijena (Spain), who had to play the role of the main striker, scored 19 points, but it was a pity that the opponent was often blocked. Hyundai Capital’s middle blocker Choi Min-ho blocked Viyena’s attempted attack 6 times that day. 스포츠토토
Director Choi added, “One of the strengths our team has is the blocking of the 4th (outside heater) spot in the front line, but it seems that the position was chosen well,” adding, “Choi Min-ho caught it well.”
Choi Min-ho said, “Our team is receiving a lot of help from side blocking.”
Hu In-jeong, coach of KB Insurance, said in an official interview after the Hyundai Capital match, “The players played hard on the court,” but “I expected that we would do better in receiving than our opponent in this game, but we didn’t.”
Director Hu added, “Since I was a little shaken in receiving, it was not easy to release the attack in front of the opponent’s high blocking.”
Hyundai Capital had an advantage over KB Insurance at the height of the day. The blocking score was 14-8, and Choi Min-ho had 9 blocks, the most in a single game.
Choi Min-ho’s previous record for most blocks in a game was 8. It was an OK Financial Group match held at Sangnoksu Gymnasium in Ansan on November 5, 2019 during the 2019-20 season. At that time, he only played 3 sets (Hyundai Capital won 3-0) and caught 8 blocks.
