“Good news” praise for first start…Why did the 19-year-old rookie setter come out midway through the third set?

“I think it will be a big experience for me.”

GS Caltex swept the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Women’s Group 4 match against Pepper Savings Bank AI Peppers 3-0 (25-11, 25-17, 25-21) in three sets at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on February 2. Third-ranked GS Caltex has a 13-7 record and 37 points to trail second-ranked Heungkuk Life (15-5, 42 points) by five points.

GS Caltex started rookie Lee Yoon-shin (19) as the starting setter. Lee, who was selected in the first round (4th overall) of the 온라인카지노 2023 Rookie Draft, has appeared off the bench in all eight matches this season.

Before the game, GS Caltex head coach Cha Sang-hyun said, “It’s important for (Kim) Ji-won to play for the first time because he’s tired. I think it’s different to have the experience of playing as a starter after a long break and only playing in the middle.”

Lee Yoon-shin was uncharacteristically calm and steady for a rookie. She utilized Silva and Yoo Seo-yeon to open up the offense. Silva finished with 28 points and a 58.97% attacking percentage, Kang So-hwi with 17 points and a 57.69% attacking percentage, and Yoo Seo-yeon with 11 points and a 62.50% attacking percentage. GS Caltex closed out the first and second sets before their opponents reached the 20-point mark, and they quickly closed out the third set 25-21. The victory took just 1 hour and 11 minutes.

After the match, Coach Cha said of Lee Yoon-shin, “It was a short period of time, but he practiced on the main side. Overall, I’m satisfied. I think it will be a great experience for him. From a coaching point of view, it’s very good news. I think I have to fill in the gaps as I go along. I don’t know how the operation will develop in the future, but I think it’s good that Kim Ji-won also has a chance to work hard and compete in good faith,” he smiled.

Despite her good performance, Lee Yoon-shin left the court at 14-13 in the third set. It wasn’t because of her performance. “I’m the one who has to make a choice,” Cha said. The next match is against Jeong Kwan-jang, and I think if I leave (Kim) Ji-won out too much, it might affect his condition. I tried to get him to play today in some way. I didn’t want him to break down senseless, so I put him in.”

“I was very nervous before the whistle blew, but as I played, I relaxed,” said Lee Yoon-shin, “I would give myself 60 points out of 100 for today’s match. I took 40 points off because my serve and errors were not good enough. I think we need to be more stable in the future.”
