‘Jeju Boy’ Kwon Soon-woo experiences his first full season in Jeju

“This is my first winter training in Jeju since middle school. I’m excited.”

Sangmyung University trained on Jeju Island for five days and six nights from the 21st to the 26th. Konkuk University and Osaka Sangyo University played an exchange game on Jeju Island, 바카라사이트 and Sangmyung joined them for a practice game.

Sangmyung University captain Kwon Soon-woo (188 cm, G) said, “We gained a lot from this winter training. Our defense, team play, and overall game are improving. My physical strength has improved, and I’ve realized what I need to do and what I shouldn’t do. “I just need to do what I need to do,” he said. “I need to play as a team and do what I need to do (on offense), but I need to help the team a lot, defend, rebound, do the dirty work. If I show it or try to do it myself, it will be a negative for the team, so I have to avoid it.”

Sangmyung University also traveled to Japan for a training camp in mid-January. It was Kwon’s first time traveling by airplane since joining Sangmyung University.

“It’s good. I’ve only seen other teams go, but it’s good that we can do it too.”

“We prepared for the season in a new training location, but if the season doesn’t go well, we might have to go back to the original training location. For the sake of the juniors, they should at least show a good performance this year.

“The content of the matches is important, but the result is also important, so we want to play winning matches,” Kwon said, adding, “The training camps in Japan and Jeju Island didn’t help. We played against a lot of different teams, so we improved a lot overall.”

Kwon Soon-woo started playing basketball in Hamdeok-cho, Jeju Island, and graduated from Gunsan Middle and Gunsan High School. This is the first time she has trained on Jeju since middle school.

“This is the first time I’ve trained in Jeju since middle school. I was excited,” he said, adding, “My friend came to watch the practice game with Osaka Sangyo University. It’s far from where I live, so it takes more than an hour to get there, but they came and cheered me on.”

However, just because you’re here doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Jeju Island. “Actually, I’ve been to Jeju before, but I train in the same gym, so I feel like I’m training here rather than on Jeju Island. I’ve been here many times.”

Kwon Soon-woo also said, “I don’t really feel like I’m in Jeju except when I’m at the airport because I’m only in my hostel. I don’t feel like I’m on Jeju Island because I only go back and forth between the gym and the hostel.”

Sangmyung University trained for 24 days before taking a day off on the 25th. It was on this day that the players could feel like they were on Jeju Island.

There are 20 days left until the start of the NCAA basketball season.

“I need to improve my shooting accuracy,” Kwon said. I still don’t have enough space, so my overall vision is narrow. I need to play with more time,” she said, adding, “I also need to talk to my defense, but I’m busy with my own things, so I need to study more.”
