Moon Jeong-hyeon (F, 194cm) recorded a triple-double and led the team to its opening 3-game winning streak.
Korea University won 93-52 in the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League match against Hanyang University held at Korea University Hwajeong Gymnasium on the 27th. Moon Jung-hyun took the lead in winning by completing a triple-double in the third quarter.
Mun Jung-hyun, who started as a starter, played all 10 minutes in the first quarter and already showed a triple-double level record (7 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists). His performance was comparable to that of the entire Hanyang University team (9 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists). Moon Jeong-hyun, who ran the court for 9 minutes and 55 seconds in the second and third quarters, completed a triple-double with 10 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists without running in the fourth quarter.
Moon Jung-hyun, who said, “I feel good because it seems like a good game,” said, “I try not to worry about the result. I’m not particularly satisfied with my performance, but I’m glad that I’m working hard to go pro.”
Regarding the triple-double record, he firmly drew the line, saying, “I did not ignore the college stage, I was lucky today,” but said, “If I play for 40 minutes, I can do more triple-doubles. He left a promise, “I will always try to become a player who can do a triple-double at any time.”
Head coach Joo Hee-jung has been giving Korea University the color of forward basketball since last season. Regarding this, Moon Jung-hyun said, “When (Ha) Yoongi and (Lee) Doo-won were around, I played center basketball and small ball basketball. I play forward basketball now, and that seems to be a good fit for me. That is why head coach Choo Il-seung selected him for the national team. He is now using the things he learned from the coach and his brothers in the national team.”
Moon Jung-hyun is evaluated as one of the big 3 resources in this year’s rookie draft, such as being called ‘Moon-Yoo-Park’ along with teammate Park Moo-bin and Yonsei University Yugi-sang. He must have felt the burden of being nominated for the first place, but he couldn’t find anything like that in Moon Jeong-hyeon.
Rather, Moon Jung-hyun said,바카라 “(Moon-Yoo-Park) Is there such a thing. He had no idea,” he said. “There is no pressure. He works hard and works hard on his personal workouts as well. College and pros are very different, so there are many things to prepare for. But I am always a prepared player, so I think I can do well even if I go pro.” Moon Jung-hyun said, “The older brothers who went to the pros first emphasized that we should always be humble and not conceited. He also told me about the perimeter defense and the 3-point shot,” he said, taking the advice of his seniors to heart.
Finally, Moon Jeong-hyun said, “I don’t think about the draft nominations at all. However, I hope that the team and coach who want me will nominate me. He has the confidence to go to that team and satisfy the coach,” he said confidently.
