Dodram 2022-23 V-League men’s round 4 match between Korean Air and Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 11th.
On this day, there was a change in the selection of Korean Air. Lim Dong-hyuk took the place of Lincoln Williams (registered name Lincoln) as the starting apologetic spiker. Not a big change. Korean Air coach Tommy Tillikainen often replaced Lincoln with Lim Dong-hyuk as a starter.
Change is part of this. Kim Kyu-min was left out of the starting lineup. According to a Korean Air official, Kim Kyu-min was excluded from the entry that day due to back pain. Kim Kyu-min is a player who firmly protects the center of Korean Air. He was running second all season with 0.750 blocks per set and fourth with a 62.62% fast break success rate.
Cho Jae-young took the place of Kim Gyu-min as a starter. This is his 7th appearance this season, and his first start of the season. Before this game, he had 7 points in 6 games. He played as a starting middle blocker for the past two seasons, but this season has been struggling to get a chance to play, being pushed out by rookie middle blocker Kim Min-jae.
It has been 277 days since Cho Jae-young played as a starter in the third round of the championship match against KB Insurance on April 9 last year.
It’s been a long time since I started, but Jaeyoung Cho shone. From the start, he played an all-or-nothing role in the center. In the 1st set 1-0, he blocked the attack of Ahmed Ikhbairi (registered name Ikhbairi), the main gun of Samsung Fire. Also, in 9-6, he pushed in, and in 10-7, he scored a quick break through perfect breathing with a player. In 22-15, he roared while blocking Kim Jeong-ho’s attack. He only posted 4 points in the 1st set. Lim Dong-hyuk (8 points) was the second highest scorer in the next team. 토토사이트
In the second set, he scored on a fast break at 7-7. Following this, he gave the team a lead with a push score at 9-9. And he finished his 2nd set with his own hands. In the 24-22, where Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance’s last chase was strong, he received a toss from a player and scored a thrilling set ending score.
The flow of the 3rd set team was not good. There were few opportunities given to Jaeyoung Cho. Then, at 9-13, he scored his first goal in the third set with a fast break.
The match went to the 4th set as the team failed to take the 3rd set. In the 4th set 1-1, Cho Jae-young scored the 6th fast break in the match. And he scored 10 points on the fast break at 18-16. First double digit score of the season. This is the first double-digit score since the Samsung Firefight on March 29 last year.
Korean Air also won 3-1 thanks to Cho Jae-young’s performance, which perfectly filled the void left by Kim Gyu-min. Breaking 50 points was a bonus. 1st place Korean Air (52 points, 18 wins, 3 losses) widened the gap with 2nd place Hyundai Capital (37 points, 12 wins, 7 losses) to 15 points.
On this day, Jaeyoung Cho’s score was 10 out of 10.
