Men’s professional volleyball KB Insurance kept the fire for ‘Spring Volleyball’.

KB Insurance won with a set score of 3-1 (19-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-21) in an away match against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in the men’s Dodram 2022-2023 V-League men’s division held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 23rd. 

KB Insurance, which recently suffered two consecutive losses and was driven into a crisis, showed a stronger back than usual and won a valuable come-from-behind victory and accumulated 35 points (12-18). Although it could not get out of the 6th place, it narrowed the gap with the 5th place OK Financial Group (41 points, 14 wins, 16 losses). 

On the other hand, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, the ‘last player’ who fell into the mire of three consecutive victories, suffered another painful 스포츠토토come-from-behind defeat and further distanced itself from spring volleyball. 

Why did Ikbairi, who flew flutteringly, remain silent from the 2nd set?

Starting off, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance was good. The performance of Ahmed Iqbairi, a striker from Lebanon, sparked fire from the start. Ikbairi scored a whopping 13 points and gave Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance a set. The attack success rate also reached 68.7%. 

However, Hwang Gyeong-min of KB Insurance counterattacked. He adjusted the positions of middle blockers Kim Hong-jeong and Park Jin-woo, and he himself actively participated in the Bull King. It was thanks to Hwang Kyung-min, who played for Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance before transferring to KB Insurance this season, who was well aware of the weakness of Ikbairi. 

KB Insurance’s winning numbers led by Hwang Gyeong-min changed the flow of the game at once. Ikbairi, who had been flying until the first set, only scored two points in the second set, and KB Insurance’s counterattack began.

Having lost the second set, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance trusted Ikbairi once more and threw the toss. However, this time too, the defense wall of KB Insurance stood in the way. On the other hand, KB Insurance succeeded in reversing by winning the 3rd set as Andres Villena’s attack revived. 

Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which was driven to the edge of a cliff, increased the proportion of attacks by Kim Jeong-ho and Shin Shin-ho in the 4th set. However, due to the sluggishness of Ikbairi, KB Insurance prevented Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance’s attack with a simple solution to change the blocking position again this time. 

KB Insurance, whose shoulders were lightened, won a come-from-behind victory without a major crisis, tying Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance’s scores to the early 20s in both sets 2-4. 

Hwang Kyung-min, who has been reborn as a ‘complete’ player who is also good at defense
