Hanawon Q captain Yang In-young (27, 184cm) expressed his apologies to the rest of the team.
Bucheon Hana 1Q Yang In-young had his best performance last season. He appeared in all 30 regular league games and compiled career highs with averages of 13.2 points and 7.0 rebounds. Although Hana 1 Q stayed at the bottom (5 wins, 25 losses), Shin Ji-hyun and Yang In-young’s play stood out in every game.
Coach Do-Wan Kim, who newly took over the leadership of Hana One Q this season, entrusted the captaincy to In-Young Yang. He showed trust and expectation at the same time. However, Yang In-young is struggling. He averaged 8.5 points and 7.4 rebounds in 17 games. Compared to last season, the power has dropped so much.
Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball Cheongju KB Stars and Hana 1Q’s 5th round confrontation held at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 1st. For some reason, Yang In-young’s true value was demonstrated. Yang In-young played 41 minutes and 1 second with 14 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 5 steals.
What stood out in particular was the 4th quarter and overtime, which were the places of competition. He took the lead in helping Hana One Q tie the game by scoring 7 points in a row from under the goal at the end of the 4th quarter. In overtime, he contributed to the team with dirty work, such as grabbing a valuable offensive rebound. In addition to Yang In-young, Shin Ji-hyeon and Jung Ye-rim played an active role in Hana 1 Q, which was a thrilling come-from-behind victory 80-70.
After the game, Hana OneQ coach Kim Do-wan said, “(Yang) In-young led the players very well. It was a short time, but I could see it being made. And I want to say thank you for seeing the players do it without losing their confidence. In-young did a good job in her role,” he praised.
Yang In-young said, “I thought the one who jumped one more step to win would win. When my colleagues are struggling, I want to cheer up a little more. I felt the importance of one win again, and I am even more happy because all the players did well to win.” 메이저놀이터
With his performance on this day, Yang In-young relieved some of the burden he had been carrying as a captain. Hana 1 Q is likely to be at the bottom for two consecutive seasons, but if Yang In-young does his part, it is expected that he will be able to serve as a red pepper corps in the remaining games.
Yang In-young said, “As a captain, he can’t say that he doesn’t feel any pressure. It is my responsibility to overcome that. It was largely because I was lacking. I felt pressure due to many factors, but I have to overcome it.”
“In fact, as captain, I want to count even the players who can’t play in the game. But I’m sorry that my colleagues couldn’t take care of me properly because I was busy doing my job. As the players have improved a lot, I want to show good play without regrets in every game.”
