“It changed my mindset,” says KU’s Kim Do-yeon, who missed the draft

Kim Do-yeon is preparing for the end of the College League.

Konkuk University (KU) made waves in the last College League 2022. They dominated the playoffs with a solid big man in Freddie. Despite finishing the regular season in seventh place, they went on a winning streak in the playoffs and reached the 온라인카지노 finals for the first time.

As a result, there were high expectations for the 2023 season. However, they didn’t live up to those expectations. They struggled from the start of the season. Although they made it to the playoffs, they ended the season with a loss against Yonsei University.

Kunkuk University, which is chanting ‘Again 2022’, has been practicing in Jeju Island. Kim Do-yeon, who participated in the 2023 KBL Rookie Draft but was not selected, also joined the team to prepare for the upcoming season.

“This is my last college league. I’m training with a different mindset from my underclassmen. Especially, missing the draft was a big motivation. After the draft, it was hard, but the manager and coaches gave me time to organize my mind, and I rejoined the team after I got my mind right. Now I’m going to work even harder for the last time,” he said.

“I realized my shortcomings, and I will try to make up for them,” Kim said of her failure. Most importantly, I need to find time to relax. I want to improve my game management, and I also need to improve my defense, which is my weakness. That’s why the remaining time is important,” he said.

KU promises to be a hot archery basketball team in the upcoming season. Kim, whose strengths lie in her shooting and speed, welcomed the news. “The team color has changed to archery basketball. For me, it’s a good team tactic. It’s not perfect yet. But we’ve been practicing for two months and have perfected it. We need to perfect it even more by practicing for the rest of the season,” she said.

Kim Do-yeon, who is preparing for her final college season, said, “We had a good performance in the 2022 season. This time, the team is strong. We have good freshmen, and the existing players have grown. I want to go to the finals again, and I want to play the playoffs at home. That’s my goal,” she said.

“I want to leave my last college experience with good memories, and to do that, I have to train and play my best. I want to spend it with no regrets,” he concluded the interview.
