On the 17th, the 3×3 men’s national team (coach Kang Yang-hyeon) held a practice match against Sangmu Basketball Team of the Armed Forces Sports Unit at Jincheon National Training Center in Jincheon-gun, Chungcheongbuk-do.
The national team will participate in the ‘FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup 2023’ held in Singapore from March 29 to April 2. The national team includes Sangmu members Huh Hoon, Song Gyo-chang, Kim Nak-hyeon, and Park Jeong-hyeon토토사이트.
Heo Hoon, who first encountered 3×3, said, “I was embarrassed at first because 3×3 was awkward and so different from 5:5. Coach Kang Yang-hyun explained each one well, so I’m adapting well.”
Likewise, Song Gyo-chang also said, “There are parts that are physically difficult. It is dynamic. These things are like the charm of 3×3.”
The 3×3 national team is sweating in the Jincheon National Training Center.
Park Jung-hyun said of his life in the athlete’s village, “I do weights in the morning, and 3×3 rules, tactics, and practice matches in the afternoon. At night, I am preparing for the tournament with video analysis and meetings.”
Kim Nak-hyun experienced the 3×3 international competition at the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games in 2018. At that time, Kim Nak-hyun, Ahn Young-jun, Yang Hong-seok, and Park In-tae, who were composed of KBL Winds, won the national team selection match and the 3×3 Korea Tour Open Division final and were granted national team qualifications.
Kim Nak-hyun said, “The foul calls are generous and I told him that basketball is a tough fight. He told me to play without getting hurt and to enjoy the fight until the end. I think all four players can enjoy it and do well.”
