KB Insurance’s ‘homegrown ace’ Hwang Kyung-min (27) made his comeback after 33 days away from the court. Despite being off the court for more than a month due to injury, he hasn’t had any problems with his game, and his addition will be a big boost for a team that needed a rebound.
Hwang Kyung-min started in the team’s home game against Samsung Fire at Uijeongbu Gymnasium on Nov. 19 and scored 12 points with a 70.59% offensive success rate. He was one of two players on the team to score in double digits, alongside 토토사이트 ‘Cannon’ Andres Villena (20 points). Although he was unable to prevent the team from losing (0-3), he was impressive in his return, showing off his pure scoring ability.
KB Insurance has been anxiously awaiting the return of Hwang Kyung-min, who injured his ribs in a collision with teammate Hong Sang-hyuk against Woori Card on March 16. At the time, the team lost 2-3 in a close full-set match, snapping an eight-game losing streak. Without its second offensive option, Hwang Kyung-min, KB Insurance lost its next four games, threatening to overturn the club’s record 13-game losing streak. After narrowly breaking the losing streak in the OK Financial Group match on the 6th, KB Insurance recorded its first back-to-back wins of the season by beating Korean Air for the first time this season, but it has now entered the dark tunnel again after back-to-back losses to Hyundai Capital and Samsung Fire.
Initially, Hwang’s return could have been pushed back to the fourth round, depending on the speed of her rehabilitation. Fortunately, he recovered quickly and was able to return to the court at the end of the third round, just before the return point this season. Going forward, he is expected to play a role in spreading out the scoring paths of Bjorna. KB Insurance’s top scorer on the team is Bijena (484 points), with a gap of more than 350 points between him and second-place Hong Sang-hyuk (132 points). Domestic contributions are low, with Hwang Kyung-min (131 points), who hasn’t played in over a month, in third place. This is why the return of Hwang Kyung-min, who has an offensive success rate of 61.26% for the season, is a welcome addition to the team.
With 17 games played so far, KB Insurance sits at the bottom of the standings with 14 points (3W-14L). They’re not even halfway through their regular season schedule, so there’s still plenty of room for improvement. This will only be possible if the domestic players can lighten the load on Bijena’s offense in the remaining matches. Hwang Kyung-min, who performed above expectations in his comeback game, has shown promise.
