“Be strong from the basics!”
Hyundai Mobis finished the 2022-2023 season with 34 wins, 20 losses and 4th place. This is an achievement that exceeds expectations. Last year, despite a lot of changes, they achieved results.
Coach Dong-hyun Cho (47) focused on the growth of young players. Coach Cho took the helm of Hyundai Mobis following former coach Yoo Jae-hak last year. It quickly stabilized Hyundai Mobis, which is undergoing a generational shift. Coach Cho said, “Last season, the players worked really hard. I wanted to go up to the semifinal playoffs, but it’s a pity that I didn’t. There are also parts of the game management that are wrong. Still, it was a good experience for the players.”
Hyundai Mobis has completed its power configuration. They re-signed Gage Prim and brought in Kebe Alumah. While the composition of foreign players was finished, the new season was planned. The key is ‘basic’. Director Cho Dong-hyun said, “Hyundai Mobis is a team where the basics are important. You can develop further only when you have the basics in place.”
The top priority for the new season is defensive aggressiveness. Last season, the average score of Hyundai Mobis was 82.8 points, which was second. However, the average score was 80.0 points (5th place). Coach Cho focused on improving defense. He said, “Anyway, there are a lot of young players, so there was a lack of defensive skills.” During the off-season, we will focus on increasing the players’ defensive aggression.”
The fast attack was the part that director Jo Dong-hyun emphasized. Hyundai Mobis ranked 4th overall with an average of 4.4 fast attacks. In the next season, we aim for more fast-breaking opportunities. Manager Cho said, “It is unfortunate that rebounds were first (average 37.4), but fast breaks were fourth. (Seo) Myung-jin improved a lot last season. he took responsibility I wish it could get better. (Lee) Wooseok is also a good player. He expects to grow,” he said. “Even in the new season, we have to focus on the fast attack. Gage Prim and Ron Jay Avarientos also adapted to the team better because they are two years apart. I plan to keep the big frame but make detailed changes.”
Finally, “(Kim) Jun-il also joined as a free agent. If Kebe Alumah adapts well, it will be a more anticipated season than last season.”메이저사이트
