Ahead of the new season, many middle and high school teams are in the midst of strengthening their strength through Stove League in each region.
The high school boys and girls are preparing for the new season by training with university teams in Gyeongnam Gyeongju and Jeju Island, while the girls’ high school boys and girls are preparing for the new season in Sacheon, Gyeongsangnam-do.
This season, with the first competition of the season scheduled in Haenam in March, in the jump ball, we met the players who are expected to be active in each school in the south high school this season.
This time, it is Ahn Hyo-min (175cm, G), a new key player at Cheongju Shinheung High School.
Always close to a supporting role, he is a player who knows how to unleash an attack with court balance and breakthrough. However, it is a flaw that his ability to finish on his own is poor because he has been faithful to the role of an assistant so far. Last season, he averaged 8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 28 minutes and 2 seconds per game in 16 games.
Ahn Hyo-min, who did not receive much attention due to his weak team power, continued to step on the court last year and accumulated experience, and has established himself as a key resource for the team in the upcoming season.
Coach Yoon Myung-soo of Cheongju Shinheung High School said, “He is the most important key player when team members are matched. He is good at breaking through as a guard and has good court balance. However, his finishing ability and shooting skills are lacking. If only this part is supplemented, he will be able to grow into a better player,” he introduced his pupil.
Continuing, “The ability to beat the defender has improved, but the ability to solve it yourself needs to be improved. Shooting should not be spared either. The team as a whole is not tall, so I want a quick counterattack, but I’m not 100% satisfied with it yet. Still, he plays a large role in our team, so I hope he will lead our team’s attack by throwing shots at the right timing and finishing in transition situations.”
Ahn Hyo-min, who is trying to become a more aggressive player, said, “Currently, there are many injured, so the atmosphere is depressed. Although our team is evaluated as weak, as all the team members are united and working hard, we are preparing (for the season) with the goal of reaching the quarterfinals.”
He continued, “I try to lead and score. My weak point is shooting, but my coach also tells me to shoot more confidently. It’s difficult to play a game I’ve never played before, but I try to overcome it. It is a lot of pressure as a captain, but it is comfortable because the team members follow me well.” 메이저놀이터
Finally, Ahn Hyo-min said, “I want to finish the season without injury. Also, I would like to have more confidence on the court. Although our team is considered weak, I want to show that we do not back down easily no matter which team we stick to. He also expressed his determination to work on the 2023 season, saying, “I want to play a fun game by sticking to it until the end.”
