'First win in a row' coach Kim Hyun-soo

    There was no defeat in sight.

    The South Korea U16 National Team defeated Bahrain 89-62 on Monday in Doha, Qatar, in a Group C qualifier for the FIBA U16 Asian Men's Basketball Championship 2023. The win improves the team's record to 1-1 after an 81-83 loss to New Zealand the day before.

    Head coach Kim Hyun-soo said, "We were a little stiff at the beginning of the game. We fixed it by making substitutions, and the players who came in stabilized and played well. It was easier to play than I thought," he said of the first victory.

    After a disappointing loss to New Zealand the day before, the team used their height disadvantage to keep the game alive with accurate three-point shooting. The team shot 50 percent (8-of-16) from three-point range against New Zealand and made 10 three-pointers (32.3 percent) against Bahrain.

    Coach Kim Hyun-soo said, "We don't have the right place to train, but the players are running in the gym to adjust their conditions. The players' physical condition is the best at the moment. The players are motivated and the atmosphere is good."

    With a 1-1 record, the team currently sits in second place behind Group C leader New Zealand. The tournament features 16 nations in four groups, with the first-place finisher in each group advancing directly to the quarterfinals. The second- and third-place finishers in each group play the second- and third-place finishers from the other group, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals.

    The team will clinch second place in Group C with a win against Jordan at 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 19. If the team finishes second in Group C and wins 메이저토토사이트 its matchup against the third-place team in Group D, it will meet the first-place team in Group A in the quarterfinals.

    "For the last game of the qualifiers, we will make a change in the starting lineup," said Kim Hyun-soo. We will utilize the players on the roster evenly to stop Jordan's height and speed. We will also play a game centered on the fastball."
