There was no aftermath of defeat.

The Republic of Korea U16 national team won 89-62 against Bahrain in the Group C preliminary round of the ‘2023 FIBA ​​U16 Asian Men’s Basketball Championship’ held in Doha, Qatar on the 18th. The national team, which lost 81-83 to New Zealand the day before, recorded 1 win and 1 loss with this win.

Coach Kim Hyun-soo, who leads the national team, talked about their first win, saying, “We were a little upset at the beginning of the game. We improved by replacing players, and the substituted players stabilized the game well. We were able to play easier than I thought.”

The national team, which had unfortunately lost to New Zealand the day before, kept the spark of the chase alive with accurate 3-point shots despite being inferior in height. The national team’s 3-point shot success rate against New Zealand was 50% (8/16), and in the game against Bahrain, they also made 10 3-point shots (32.3% success rate).먹튀검증

Coach Kim Hyun-soo said, “The training location is not appropriate, but the players are controlling their condition by running at the gym. The players are currently in top physical condition. The players are also full of motivation and the atmosphere is good.”

The national team, with 1 win and 1 loss, is currently in second place after New Zealand, which is in first place in Group C. A total of 16 countries will participate in the competition and will be divided into 4 groups, with the top player from each group advancing directly to the quarterfinals. The 2nd and 3rd place teams from each group will face off against the 2nd and 3rd place teams from other groups, and the winning country will advance to the quarterfinals.

If the national team wins the game against Jordan at 8:30 p.m. on the 19th, it will secure second place in the group. If the national team ranks 2nd in Group C and wins the match against 3rd place in Group D, it will meet the 1st place team in Group A in the quarterfinals. There is a high possibility that Australia will take first place in Group A.

Coach Kim Hyun-soo said, “We are planning to change the starting lineup for the last game of the preliminary round. We will use the players in the entry evenly to block Jordan’s high height and speed. We will also focus on fast breaks.”
