‘In volleyball, you play the setter’…Hyundai Capital and KB Sonbo’s mixed fortunes

A crack is forming at the bottom of the men’s professional volleyball table. The Hyundai Capital Skywalkers, revitalized by a setter’s toss, are on the verge of escaping the bottom of the standings, while the bottom-ranked KB Insurance Stars have lost five straight games without their star setter.
Hyundai Capital has been on a three-game winning streak since Dec. 24 last year, beating the fourth-place KEPCO Big Storm (29 points) and the first-place Woori Card Wooriwon (42 points).

It is the first three-game winning streak of the season under acting coach Jin Soon-ki after Choi Tae-woong stepped down due to poor performance.

They are still in sixth place with 7 wins and 13 losses, but they have 25 points, the same as the fifth-place OK Financial Group Isman (9 wins and 10 losses).

It’s a testament to the team’s ability to win in straight sets, even when they lose.
Setter Kim Myung-kwan has been at the center of their rise.

Kim has been the starting setter for the last three matches, serving the ball low and fast to attackers on both sides of the court. 카지노사이트

Against Woori Card, the team recorded 59 set successes, significantly outpacing their opponents (41).

KBSN commentator Kim Min-cheol said, “Setter Kim Myung-kwan tries to play left and right quickly.

By utilizing his big height to spray the toss from a high place, the left and right quick-open attacks became faster than in previous matches, and the attacking power of the main guns Ahmed, Heo Su-bong, and Jeon Kwang-in became sharper.”
KB Sonbo, on the other hand, is coming off another back-to-back losses in the absence of veteran setter Hwang Seung-bin.

Hwang Seung-bin injured his eye while blocking in training on December 26 last year and missed two games.

Hoo In-jung started rookie Park Hyun-min, a second-year pro, as the starting setter against Samsung Fire on Dec. 30, but the team failed to win.

The team’s peak offensive performance by main outside hitter Andres Biyena (registered name Biyena) led to errors in Hwang Seung-bin’s absence.

Coach Hoo In-jung said after the Samsung Fire match, “The setters were very shaky.

In any match, if the setter starts making mistakes, it’s a tough match,” said Hoo. “

It was like giving away points without even trying, because the toss miss came out before the attacker could hit it, and that was disappointing.”
With Hwang Seung-bin set to return in the next game (Jan. 4), it will be interesting to see if the league’s bottom-ranked KB Sonbo (14 points, 3-3-17) can climb out of the losing tunnel.

Their opponent is Hyundai Capital. Commentator Kim Min-cheol said, “Hwang Seung-bin has the best right toss in the league.

The offensive chemistry between Bijena and Hwang Seung-bin has been going on for a long time, and it’s hard for a rookie setter to suddenly adjust his toss timing to the offense.”
