20 points including 3 blocking against Pepper Savings Bank on the 1st, IBK 2 consecutive wins
IBK caught all of the series against Pepper Savings Bank and stepped on the 30-point high.
IBK Industrial Bank Altos, led by coach Kim Ho-cheol, scored a set score 3-1 (22-25, 25-20, 25 -22,25-18) won. IBK, who struggled by giving away the first set and won the second, third, and fourth sets, won three points in two consecutive matches against Pepper Savings Bank, narrowing the gap with GS Caltex KIXX in 5th place to two points (10 15 wins).
IBK’s eldest sister Kim Su-ji scored 16 points, including 4 serve points and 4 blocks, and Santana, unlike a foreign player, scored 15 points, 68.42% receiving efficiency, and recorded 27 digs, making a big success in the offense and defense. Unlike other teams where foreign players play an active role as a positive spiker with a high attack ratio, IBK Bank plays an active role as an outside hitter with foreign player Santana participating in the serve. This is a possible player composition because there is Pyo Seung-ju, who has performed the best since his debut this season.
Players who changed positions for various reasons
In the V-League, there are often players who change positions according to team circumstances or for personal survival. It is most common for an outside hitter or an apositive spiker with good height to transform into a middle blocker to take advantage of their height. However, on the other hand, there are cases where a strong middle blocker transforms into an outside hitter to maximize offensive power, or an outside hitter with good defense transforms into a libero.
Han Song-yi (KGC Ginseng Corporation), who won the top scorer by beating Kim Yeon-kyung (Hungkuk Life Insurance Pink Spiders), the ‘Volleyball Empress’ in the 2007-2008 season, during the Korea Expressway Corporation High Pass, is a representative example. Han Song-i, who worked as an outside heater and transformed into a middle blocker in the 2014-2015 season, beat Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai Engineering & Construction Hillstate) in the 2020-2021 season to become the blocking queen. In the history of the V-League, only Jung Dae-young (Highway Corporation) and Han Song-i have won both the scoring and blocking titles.
Suji Han (GS Caltex), who was the main setter who led Ginseng Corporation’s third championship in the 2011-2012 season after being selected as the first overall pick in the 2006 rookie draft, transformed into a middle blocker from the 2016-2017 season. Han Su-ji, who has been showing off her excellent blocking ability with her height of 183cm since her days as a setter, has been ranked high in the blocking category every season after transforming into a middle blocker.
If Han Song-i and Han Su-ji transformed from other positions to middle blockers, Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s Jeong Ji-yoon is a player who changed positions from middle blocker to outside hitter. Jung Ji-yoon, who had been active as a middle blocker for three consecutive seasons after joining the pro in the 2018-2019 season, transformed into an outside hitter with the participation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. After scoring 237 points with a success rate of 43.68% last season, Jung Ji-yoon is continuing his good performance this season by scoring 208 points with a success rate of 38.4%.
Kim Hae-ran Libero (Heungkuk Life Insurance), Immyeong-ok Libero (Highway Corporation), Oh Ji-young Libero (Pepper Savings Bank), and Shin Yeon-kyung Libero have one thing in common: when they joined adult volleyball, their position was an outside hitter. However, due to various circumstances, such as chronic injuries, a lack of libero, weak defense, and poor competitiveness as a striker, he transformed into a libero and has now established himself as an immovable main player in each team.
2nd in domestic outside hitter scoring behind Kim Yeon-kyung
In the 2010 rookie draft, Pyo Seung-joo was not selected by IBK, a new team that nominated Kim Hee-jin’s JoongAng Girls’ High School, Park Jeong-ah (Road Corporation)’s Busan Men’s Girls’ High School, and Choi Eun-ji’s Jinju Sunseon Girls’ High School. nominated for construction Pyo Seung-joo scored 87 points in 19 games in the 2010-2011 season and won the Rookie of the Year title, but was stigmatized as the ‘Rookie of the Half’ because the ‘Big 3’ rookies of IBK did not participate in the league.
After becoming a pro, he played an active part in road construction for four seasons, and in 2014, Seung-ju Pyo, who wore a GS Caltex uniform as a reward player for FA Jung Dae-young, was his excellent multi-position digestion ability. With a good height of 182cm, Pyo Seung-joo usually played as an outside hitter, but when he needed to strengthen his height, he acted as a middle blocker, and when a foreign player was injured or sluggish, he played an active role as an apositive spiker. 토토사이트
Pyo Seung-joo, who made a name for himself as the best multi-player in the V-League, earned FA status in 2019 and moved to Industrial Bank of Korea, establishing himself as an outside hitter. However, Pyo Seung-joo, who was a bit lacking in offense and defense, was a bit lacking to be called the top of the league, and spent three seasons at IBK as an outside hitter with decent skills. However, at the end of March last year, Pyo Seung-joo, who renewed his contract with IBK for a total annual salary of 282.1 million won, is showing an active performance that matches his annual salary this season.
Pyo Seung-joo, who played in all 25 matches played by IBK this season, scored 344 points, the second most in the team after foreign player Santana (390 points), and is ranked 10th in the scoring category. On top of that, with 0.37 blocking and 4.04 digs per set, height and defense also play a big role. In the match against Pepper Savings Bank on the 1st, Pyo Seung-joo scored 20 points, the most in the team, with a 45.95% attack success rate, 3 blocks and 23 digs.
Pyo Seung-joo is posting the most points after Kim Yeon-kyung (446 points) among native outside hitters this season. If the tradition (?) of domestic players winning the best 7 in the outside heater category for four consecutive seasons from the 2018-2019 season continues this season, it means that Pyo Seung-ju is a very strong BEST7 candidate. However, Pyo Seung-ju will be even more eager to see his team, Enterprise Bank, advance to spring volleyball this season, when he is posting the best results since his professional debut.
