Lee Gyu-tae (20, 199cm), who just got out of freshman year, is expanding his territory to the outskirts.
Lee Gyu-tae of Yonsei University started in the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League away game against Dongguk University held at Dongguk University Seoul Campus Gymnasium on the 5th and recorded 14 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists, leading the team to a great victory (80-55).
Lee Gyu-tae, whom we met after the game, said, “In the first quarter, the opponent’s defense changed (from man-to-man to regional defense), so it was a struggle. He was able to win the game in the 2nd and 4th quarters as the players concentrated on the game,” he said of his victory.
At Yonsei University, freshmen Lee Joo-young and Lee Chae-hyeong, who were expected to play a pivotal role in the front line, left one after another at the beginning of the season. Yonsei University coach Yun Ho-jin responded to the team’s crisis by appointing Lee Kyu-tae as a small forward. This is Lee Gyu-tae, who usually played the 4th and 5th positions. How is he responding to his new assignment?
Lee Gyu-tae said, “So far, I have only seen positions 4 and 5. Because of that, his movement outside the outskirts was definitely a bit awkward. He told the director about his difficulties, and fortunately he understood my situation. I’m trying to adapt (to my new assignment),” he explained the role.
Yonsei University immediately recruited a large number of new students with a sense of power this year. A lot of attention was paid to the joining of Lee Joo-young and Lee Chae-hyung, who led Korea to the championship with the U-18 national team, but the weight of the back line cannot be ignored. Freshman big men Kang Ji-hoon and Hong Sang-min are also given a chance to play every game and are injecting vitality into the team.
Lee Kyu-tae was able to share the burden with the joining of the freshmen with height. It’s a bit different from last year,카지노사이트 when I was in charge of the post with Kim Bo-bae. As a freshman, Lee Kyu-tae looked back on last year when he was in charge of the bottom of the goal. He said, “The joining of the two freshmen (Kang Ji-hoon and Hong Sang-min) is a great strength. Thanks to that, both freshmen and I can move back and forth between positions 3 and 4. We are looking forward to the growth of the two freshmen.”
