Kim Hyun-woo (179cm, G) started playing basketball to be like his father.
Bae Jae-go announced a fresh start by winning a 20-point (103-83) car win over Masango High School in Gyeonggi-do on the second day of the 2023 Federation Presidency Preliminaries for the South High School Division of the National Men’s and Women’s Middle School Basketball Tournament, which continued at the Gimcheon Gymnasium in Gyeongbuk on the 3rd. Bae Jae-go, who took the initiative from the beginning, laughed without giving up the lead even once.
While Seo Ji-woo, Lee Jae-seo, and Hwang Chi-woong wrote a double-double side by side, Kim Hyun-woo also showed off his presence in various fields and contributed to the team’s victory. On this day, Kim Hyun-woo played full-time, recording 24 points, 4 rebounds, 9 assists and 4 steals, and also made 5 3-point shots.
Kim Hyeon-woo, whom we met after the game, said, “After being eliminated from the preliminary round in the last tournament (association flag), the team atmosphere was sluggish. Still, he helped set the mood among the coaching staff, and it seems that it worked out well for the players to come to this tournament with the mindset of winning among themselves.”
He continued, “In the meantime, there have been parts where the players didn’t get along. But today it didn’t look like that, and I think he was able to score easily thanks to his teammates passing well,” he said, looking back on the game that day.
Kim Hyun-woo, who did not stand out in the previous two tournaments, prepared more diligently for this tournament than anyone else.
“After the second competition, I exercised four times a day from dawn. It seems that such efforts have led to good results.”
Kim Hyun-woo wanted to be like his father, so he walked the path of a basketball player. His father is Kim Tae-jin, the director of Myongji University.토토사이트
“When I was in elementary school, it was just a hobby. Then, as she entered middle school, she had a sudden thought that she wanted to be like her father. So (he said he wanted to play basketball), and his father said he wanted him to play basketball at his alma mater.” Hyunwoo Kim says:
His strong point is his shooting, and although his playing style is different, he said that there are many things he can learn from his father as a basketball senior.
Kim Hyun-woo said, “After the game, while watching the video, he gave me a lot of advice on movement, shot timing, and defense. Although our playing styles are different, it is very helpful because he explains well and gives us a lot of feedback. I think I have a lot to learn from my father,” he said, reassuring his father.
Kim Hyeon-woo, who took Jeon Seong-hyeon (Day One) and Jeon Hyun-woo (Korea Gas Corporation) as role models, expressed strong confidence in winning the championship, saying, “I will fight with my teeth and enter this competition with the thought of winning unconditionally.”
On the other hand, Baejae High School will play the last match of the preliminaries with Jeonju, the winning team of the Spring Federation at 6:00 pm on the 4th.
