Yongin Samsung Life Insurance forward Kang Yoo-rim (25, 1m75cm) is showing off his increasingly hot fingertips ahead of the playoffs (PO).
Kang Yoo-rim, who entered his third year as a pro, played 27 games this season and recorded 13.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game for an average of 34 minutes and 14 seconds. He averages 1.78 3-pointers per game. The success rate is 36.9% (48/130). He is growing remarkably enough to be in the top 10 in the league in key offensive indicators such as scoring, 3-point shooting, and field goal success rate.메이저놀이터
In the 2022-23 season regular league round 6 home game (70-59 win) against Cheongju KB, which ended at Yongin Gymnasium on the 20th, Kang Yu-rim succeeded in 3 3-point shots in 35 minutes and 30 seconds. Three points fell short of the record for the most points scored in an individual game (26 points against Hanawon Q in Bucheon on October 31, 2022). Although he failed to achieve his new record, he drew attention by showing various scoring methods that do not cover inside and outside.
In the match against KB, Kang Yoo-rim’s deep three (three-point shot shot from a distance longer than the 3-point line) shot and step-back jump shot stood out. With Kang I-seul, who is called the best shooter in women’s professional basketball (WKBL) history, watching, he received a pass from a colleague in the left and right corner and 45-degree area far from the 3-point line, and immediately shot. There was also an appearance of trying to shoot while stepping back against veteran Choi Hee-jin’s pressure defense.
Kang Yoo-rim, who scored an average of 18.6 points in the first round and received the MIP (Prowess Improvement Award), later scored in the low 10s in the second and third rounds. It was because of the ups and downs in his stamina. Kang Yoo-rim, who had been somewhat stagnant even entering the second half, is exploding his scoring power again at a crucial moment when the team is competing for second place.
The performance of Kang Yoo-rim, who has emerged as the ace of Samsung Life Insurance, is expected to become more important in the remainder of the season. Samsung Life Insurance, which took KB and entered second place, will meet Busan BNK and Incheon Shinhan Bank in turn in the remaining February schedule. These are the games that will be the final watershed in the fierce battle for second place this season. The baseline pressure is essential. If Samsung Life takes second place in the league, the third place of these two teams must meet with one team in PO.
Kang Yoo-rim is strong against BNK and Shinhan Bank. He is averaging 14.4 points on 2.6 made 3-pointers in five games against BNK this season. Against Shinhan Bank, he averaged 1.4 3-point shots and 11.8 points in 5 games. Kang Yoo-rim said, “There is no difference depending on who the opponent is. He decides whethe
