“I’m very busy, but if I can play basketball, everything is fine.”
On the 3rd, the KBA 3×3 Korea Tour 2023 Yangsan Competition held at the Yangsan Inline Skating Rink in Yangsan City, Gyeongsangnam-do, took part in Yangsan’s representative sports club, ‘Big Eye x Rev’.
In this competition held in Yangsan, a large number of traditional famous houses representing Gyeongsang-do participated. Among them, the eldest child x Lev challenged the league division on behalf of Yangsan.
Keun I x Rev, composed of pure non-athletes such as Lee Hyeon-joo, Hwang Min-soo, Kim Dong-young, and Han Jun-ho, was eliminated early after losing twice to Black Label Sports and Motion Sports in the preliminaries. They struggled in their own way against the two teams with professional players centered on Lee Hyun-joo, but as time passed, the difference in weight class became clear.
The big kids x rev players, who competed in a different environment and atmosphere than usual, said in unison, “I was surprised at the high level of the competition.” Hwang Min-soo said, “This is the first league match, but it is definitely different from the open match. I felt that I was lacking in many aspects, from shooting accuracy to stamina. I felt that I had to prepare harder,” he said, expressing his impressions of his league debut.메이저사이트
Kim Dong-young also said, “In the beginning, the game developed quite evenly, but eventually, the difference in skill was revealed towards the end. As a club basketball player, I also faced many teams, but I felt that the league players were on a different level, and at the same time I realized that I needed to prepare more.”
The Korea Tour has been held in Yangsan for four consecutive years from 2020. Thanks to this, Yangsan, which was close to a basketball wasteland, threw off the image of a basketball wasteland and provided an opportunity to ignite the basketball fever in the region.
Kim Dong-young said, “There are as many club members in Yangsan who enjoy basketball as in Busan. In addition, with the Korea Tour held in recent years, basketball fever in the region has been energized.” Next year and the year after, I will work hard to improve my skills and make sure to win 1 win so that Yangsan can be more known.”
The first league challenge ended in failure, but the eldest child x Lev accumulated valuable experience by competing with 3×3 strong players. Lastly, they expressed their gratitude to Baek Sang-rak, head of the Yangsan City Basketball Association, the head of Keunai x Rev, who worked hard both physically and mentally so that they could participate in this tournament.
“Ever since I was young, President Sang-Rak Baek always treated me like an older brother and helped me a lot so that I could play basketball in a good environment. I took my first step in the league division starting with this tournament, but I will not get wet with a sense of defeat and will prepare harder in the future to give you one win.”
