” The coach expressed his faith. He told me to shoot with confidence.”
Joo-eon Shim (191cm, G, F), a senior at Yangjeong High School, played for 38 minutes and 36 seconds in the match against Songdo High School in the 2023 Federation Presidency National Men’s and Middle School Basketball Preliminaries held at the Gimcheon National Sports Center on the 4th, and the team won with 35 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. (77-73) took the lead.
Yang Jeong-go announced an uneasy start by finishing the first quarter with a score of 9-23, but soon picked up momentum and finished the game with a come-from-behind victory. At the center was Sim Joo-eon. He led the team’s offense by scoring 23 points only in the second half, and at the end of the 4th quarter, he helped Seung-chae Koo’s decisive 3-pointer with a kickout pass following a breakthrough.
After the match, Sim Joo-eon looked back on the game, saying, “The opponent was a fast-paced and solid team, so I had to come out nervous. 크크크벳
Then, when asked about the driving force behind the come-from-behind victory, Shim Joo-eon said, “I didn’t feel good about shooting at the beginning of the game. However, the coach expressed his faith. He told me to shoot with confidence. I think that part gave me confidence.”
Shim Joo-eon’s eyes were on Jeon Seong-hyeon (Day One). Sim Joo-eon said, “If you are a shooter, you will of course learn from Seong-hyun Jeon. I always try to get help by watching him play.”
He then hinted at his goal, saying, “I’ve never been to the quarterfinals, so my goal is to make it to the quarterfinals. I want to go up one step and get good results.”
