Dongguk University captain Lee Dae-gyun meets alumnus Byun Jun-hyung in the national championship game.
In the men’s general basketball semifinals of the 바카라사이트 104th National Games at the Mokpo Multipurpose Gymnasium in Mokpo, Jeollanam-do, South Korea, Dongguk University won 96-57 against Ulsan National University in Ulsan, South Korea, to advance to the final. Dongguk’s final opponent is the Armed Forces Athletic Corps (Sangsang), which is composed of professional athletes.
“We didn’t play well in the first half and there were a lot of things that were disappointing, so even though we won, I think it was a disappointing game,” said Lee Dae-gyun, captain of Dongguk University, about the semifinals. “The coach told us to focus on the most basic defense and rebounding, but we were too bad at those two things in the beginning,” he reflected.
Lee scored 18 points alongside junior Lim Jung-hyun to help lead the team to victory. “There were a lot of misses and I didn’t play confidently under the basket, so I would give myself a 5 out of 10,” he said.
Dongguk University’s final opponent is Byun Jun-hyung, a senior and former captain of Dongguk University.
In response, Lee Dae-gyun said, “First of all, I’m very excited to meet my senior, who is the pride of Dongguk University, in the final. I want to work harder in front of him and become a junior who is not ashamed of himself,” he said.
Last but not least, he mentioned Commerce’s Park Jung-hyun as an anticipated matchup. Lee Dae-gyun said, “Park Jung-hyun is very strong and has good control under the goal. I think Jung-hyun will have to be careful about blocking him and keep him in check. It will be a good experience.” The final between the two teams will be held at 1 p.m. on the 19th at the Mokpo Multipurpose Gymnasium.
