IBK has lost its second straight game to start the season.
The bank lost a three-game set against Hyundai E&C in the 2023-2024 V-League at Hwaseong Gymnasium on Nov. 21.
Abe Crombie (29 points) and Pyo Seung-ju (19 points) played well, but they couldn’t find their rhythm with Satter Ponfun.
Coach Kim Ho-cheol said after the game, “When we needed to score points, the attackers didn’t match up with the setter, which led to errors. There was a stutter,” but he also expressed his expectations, saying, “I think they will adapt to each other in the near future.”
Hyundai E&C, on the other hand, was led by Moma (25 points) and Yang Hyo-jin (18 points), while Wipawi (21 points) showed that she has adjusted perfectly after the opening three games.
Wipawi, who shot a high 56.25 percent on the day, used her quick feet to execute timely and concise attacks despite her small size of 5-foot-7.
Hyundai E&C took the lead in the first set when Abercrombie served a high service ace. HMC lost the set due to errors such as net touches and overnets.
In the second set, Hyundai E&C’s Yang Hyo-jin and Lee Da-hyun shined as they made a series of mobile attacks, fast attacks, and effective blocks.토토사이트
