In Ho Chung on being drafted: “I’m glad I can play defense and shoot 3s”

Jung In-ho (190 cm, F) is preparing for the KBL rookie draft by working on his defense and three-point shooting, which he has been targeting this season.

Myeongji University held practice games against Changwon LG in Changwon on the 16th and 17th. On the 18th, the team is scheduled to play against the Seoul SK. The team also practiced with Suwon KT and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis last week.

Myeongji University, which finished all competitions with a 5-9 record and 10th place in the KU League, is not only preparing for the upcoming season, but also to showcase the skills of its fourth-year players.

The captain averaged 10.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 26.7 percent (20-of-75) shooting from three-point range in the college basketball league. He completed his official collegiate competition with averages of 9.3 points, 2.3 assists, and 33.3 percent shooting from 3-point range (6/18) and 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 28.6 percent shooting from 3-point range (6/21) in the MBC ship and species competitions, respectively.

After a scrimmage with LG on Sunday, Jung said, “I’m most disappointed. We had a good start to the year, so I was looking forward to making the playoffs, but it’s unfortunate that we failed. It’s also unfortunate that I couldn’t do it personally,” he said, reflecting on the year.

Myeongji University started the season with a 4-2 record and showed glimpses of playoff potential. However, the team went winless and fell short of their first ever NCAA playoff appearance.

“We won a lot of games early on, and it seemed like the players got complacent, and then we had a lot of injuries, so the atmosphere went down,” Jung In-ho said.

One of the injured players was Jung In-ho. He hasn’t missed much time, but after averaging 13.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists on 35.9 percent (14-of-39) shooting from three-point range in the first six games of the season, his scoring has dropped as his three-point accuracy has declined since the shoulder injury.

During winter training last year, he vowed to “do the two things the manager and coach ask me to do: shoot well and defend well.”

When asked about it, he said, “I think it’s half success and half failure. In the beginning, I shot a lot, but in the middle of the college league, I injured my shoulder and couldn’t shoot much.” “That’s a shame,” he said, “but I’m glad that I shot a lot of defense and three-pointers in the MBC boat and in the individual competitions. 토토사이트

Myung Ji-dae played more practice games with professional teams this year than at other times.

He said, “I approach (practice games with the pros) with the mentality that I’m trying to catch my last dongjul with desperation. If I try to be too good, I’ll make a lot of mistakes, so I only do what the coach asks me to do,” he said. “The coach emphasizes defense the most, and he doesn’t ask me to be technical, but to shoot confidently at shooting opportunities, so I focus on that.”

While Myeongji University will take a two-week break after their scrimmage against SK on Nov. 18, Jung In-ho has about a month to prepare for the draft.

“I think I’ll go to the draft while working out with the juniors after the break,” he said. “I don’t play much during the break, so I’ll take care of my body and prepare hard, and if I do the same at the tryout, I’ll have good results.”
