KB Insurance head coach Hoo In-jeong did not hide his frustration after tying the franchise record for the longest losing streak.
“Actually, Andres Biyena (registered name Biyena) was playing with fluids due to illness,” he said after the team’s 12th consecutive loss with a set score of 0-3 against visiting KEPCO in the 2023-2024 men’s professional volleyball league at Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do, Gyeonggi-do, on Feb. 2. “It’s unfortunate that other attackers should have contributed to the team’s strength, but it seems that the team focused on attacking only Biyena today.”
“She’s always dragging at least two of the opposition’s middle blockers with her,” he said. “The other attackers need to be able to run the offense smoothly, and that wasn’t the case. Even a good attacker can only do so much.”
Hoo went on to mention the word ‘trade’.
“Even if we trade, the cards have to be right,” he said, adding, “I think we have to make a decision within the third round.”
KB Sonbo has lost 12 games since winning its first game of the season against the KEPCO on Oct. 17.
In that match, the team made a series of lethargic plays and lost the set 0-3.
This is the second time since the 2019-2020 season that KB Sonbo has lost 12 straight games. If they lose their next match, it will be the longest losing streak in the organization’s history.
There’s no indication of the number.
Forward Hwang Kyung-min, who was sidelined last month with a fractured rib, is facing a long road back.
“I think Hwang Kyung-min will be able to return after the fourth round,” said Hoo In-jung.
On the other hand, Kwon Young-min, the head coach of KEPCO, who blew the whistle on their sixth consecutive victory, praised the senior players, including Park Chul-woo and Kim Kwang-guk, saying, “They played an invisible role.” “They didn’t play a lot of minutes, but they helped us overcome a tough situation,” he added. 사설토토
