’25P-13R against Chung-Ang University’ Dongguk University’s Lim Jeong-hyun “Because the bench believed in me…”
Dongguk University failed to overcome Kisun. Sophomore Im Jung-hyun (F, 192 cm) was a key contributor to the team’s come-from-behind victory.
Dongguk University’s Im recorded a double-double (25 points, 13 rebounds, 1 assist) to lead the team to a 77-65 victory over Chung-Ang University in the 2023 KUSF University Basketball U-League at Dongguk University’s Seoul Campus Gymnasium on Friday.
Lim, who is new to interviews, said, “It feels good to break the losing streak. When I had a chance to shoot, I shot confidently and thought about the big things and defense first,” she said of her youthful victory.
Lim played a big role in the team’s come-from-behind victory, exploding for six three-pointers. He said, “I shot my first shot confidently, but it was an airball. I almost got discouraged, but the bench believed in me. After that, I made one and kept shooting confidently,” he said, revealing the driving force behind his outside shooting.
Before this game, Dongguk University had only won two games and was on a losing streak. Their opponent was No. 3 Chung-Ang University, so they needed to prepare more thoroughly. Lim Jung-hyun said, “I thought that if I worked hard, victory would follow, so I went into the game with the idea of putting everything into it. I told my teammates that it was worth it and that we were not a weak team, so as long as I did my part, we would win.”
Lim capped off her third win of the season with a double-double. She was inspired by the performance to play harder in the remaining games. “I’m going to shoot as confidently as I did in practice, play basic defense, and rebound first. I hope to finish well without any injuries and take home the win 스포츠토토.”
