Men’s basketball team replaces Moon Sung-gon with Yang Hong-seok due to “ankle pain”

August 24, 2023 | by

There is a change in the national team roster.

The Korea Basketball Association announced on the 23rd, “Moon Sung-gon has been removed from the final roster due to persistent ankle pain. Yang Hong-seok was newly named.” “Yang Hong-seok immediately joined the Jincheon Athletes’ Village. He will begin strengthening training in earnest.”

Moon Sung-gon has the best defense among Korean players. He is also a strong offensive rebounder. However, an injury forced him to drop out of the national team. 바카라

Yang Hong-seok is a small forward like Moon Sung-gon. Unlike Moon, his strength is his offense. Last season, he averaged 12.6 points and 5.9 rebounds in the professional basketball league.

The national team is currently training at the Jincheon Athletic Center. Their goal is to win gold at the Hangzhou Asian Games.

The Hangzhou Asian Games will be held from September 26 to October 7 in Hangzhou, China.
